We had quite a scare today as our little Yorkie was vomiting and not feeling well. It turns out he had ingested a steel bristle from a BBQ cleaning brush and it lodged itself in his stomach. They where able to remove it with a endoscopy procedure witout operating. Very fortunate. My wife and i and so greatfull to the Alta Vista pet hospital. We cant imagine not having him in our lives. We had herd of people swallowing these bristles and being rushed to the hospital so be very carefull with you steel brushes. Our daughter just brought us a wooden paddle to clean the BBQ. Seems that this is the new way to scrape the grills. It was bought at Costco's. Included a pic of our little guy.

Glad he's Ok Marc.

I'd heard stories about those steel bristle brushes, the wooden paddle seems like the way to go.

That type of bristle BBQ cleaning brush should have been banned ages ago. The number of people seen in the ER due to these has been alarming.

Your Yorkie certainly is cute (and I'm not one that uses that word often..maybe once every 5 years...LOL). What an expression he has in that pic! Glad to hear that he is now doing well.

I once pulled a bristle out of my mouth ( found in one of those big smoked turkey drumsticks at Canada's Wonderland). I complained and they no longer sell them.

My old goldie also ate a long needle at the end of a christmas popcorn-thing my wife was working on. I don't have to imagine that you paid a fortune to have it removed.

Wow, glad to hear it didn't turn out worse. I've never heard of the BBQ bristle thing before. I'm tossing mine out

Cute little guy, there Marcos. I'm glad you found the piece to the "puzzle".

I just threw out our bristle brush the other day. Even though I am very careful, I am not going to take any chances with the health of my family or friends.

That pic was taken a few months back. He likes to pic up anything on the floor and brings it to his bed. He doesnt eat it unless its actually food.
