Somehow my dog got an aluminum loaf pan off the counter (probably she reached up behind the couch...)<br><br>
I caught her and threw it out but it looks like there are a few peices missing. I'm afraid this is gonna hurt her...should I be?

Give her a can of pumpkin or a bowl of all bran, you need something to bulk everything up so it can slide on through the intestines without causing any harm. Keep an eye out for bloody stool, if it's red frank blood no real worry provided it doesn't last more than 48 hrs, if the stool is black or tarry, you need to take her into the vet right away. At this point though, there isn't much they can do--the chance of damage is not high so surgery would be far more risky than the aluminum (I'm trusting it's not a ton of aluminum right??)

Just wanted to say that she's fine. Decided she likes pumpkin. Haven't had any problems. Maybe it was just crinkled up and she didn't ingest any, or maybe the pumpkin helped, but she's been fine.<br><br>
Thanks for alleviating my worries aobut this. 'S good to have knowledgeable people around <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
