Answer: Eating anything or any amount of anything is possible for a dog who would actually eat a rock in the first place.
Is everything ok with your boy since this episode? I sincerely hope so!
so please he feels better and SOO PLEASE that the stone has found his way out! Before we had Oberon, we co-owned another setter with a friend.. He went to our life late, when he was already >9years old, so we only have stories from his young years..
but, believe or not, when this dog was younger, he had to be operated **twice** for removing stones from the stomach !!!! Believe or not, some IS start playing and playing and eventually wolf down sticks and *stones*. I can understand sticks.. but stones?? I couldnt believe this may happen!
I suggest you watch him closely: hopefully it was a one -off and not a sort of habit ; )
also: yes: in one of the surgery this dog had removed *3 stones*. so, is not impossible at all that he has wolfed down more then one.. the only way is to xrays, but on the other hand if he feels ok probably is fine.. sorry as i said i wasnt present in the life of this dog when it happened so i cant help with symptoms etc..
a big hug to the poor boy : )
