Puppies chew on anything & everything they can get their mouths on…. Jeter has bit through trimming & carpet in the month that I have had him. I’m constantly taking things away from him or pulling things out of his mouth. This morning as I was getting ready for work, Jeter decides it would be a fantastic idea to eat ear plugs! He had the pair in his mouth & I was able to get only ONE out! Naturally I’m freaking out & I don’t know whether I should try to make him throw up or leave him & let it pass. I immediately call his vet & of course they want me to take him in. As I’m getting dressed & gathering our things I’m going crazy trying to find someone to cover my shift at work (of course everyone wants your shift until you actually need to give it away…). Anyways, I get to the vet & Jeter is acting crazy, which is normal for him, so I feel a little bit better. When we finally get seen the vet tells me he wants to make him throw it up by applying eye drops in his eye that would make him sick. So I agree to that approach & poor Jeter is screaming his head off, squirming & not letting the vet instill the eye drops. I guess I had a horrible look on my face because the vet stopped what he was doing, looked up at me & asked, “do you want to step outside while we do this or are you ok?” I just don’t like hearing my baby scream, but I didn’t want to leave him. Finally the drops get in his eye & my baby starts puking over & over & over… BAM! out comes the ear plug! I never thought I would be so happy to see Jeter throwing up. If he hadn’t thrown it up or pooped it out the vet said Jeter would need surgery to get it removed! Needless to say Jeter & I had an eventful morning! Glad my little baby is ok!
