Unbelievable! My puppy, Hershey got a hold of a PlayStation 2 disc and possibly ate some of it. She has ruined a few DVD discs in the past, but this was the first time that she actually decided to eat one. To think that she has good dog foods and she wanted to supplement her diet with a game video disc. So far, she is feeling OK. I'm very worried though since I'm not sure whether the sharp disc will harm Hershey.
Has anyone else's dog eaten a disc before?

hydrogen peroxide will probably cause more problems than anything right now--Making the dog vomit using hydrogen peroxide could cause cuts or tears or even punctures in the dogs trachea and esophagus.--
you need to call your vet and i would highly suggest that you take your pup in for an xray or sonogram to see how much of the disc and where it is in the dog. surgery may be needed if the pieces are too large for your pup to pass.
I suggest a trip to the vet. That is where my Cookie, english bulldog ended up after eating a couple 20 oz. plastic pop bottles, lol plus a 2x4 chunk of wood. I know bulldogs are known for chewing but good god a 2x4! Hope your baby is alright. Cookie just ended up spending a night there to make sure it would all come out ok in the end, sorry no pun intended, lol. Good Luck and hopefully she will change her appitie to something a bit more managable for her system.
wow! what game was it? I'm sorry, but I'm a curious guy. sorry, sorry, sorry. my dog ate 1/4 of my ps2 contoller. I would bring hershey to the vet asap. do not give ur dog hydrogen peroxide because it might cause the disc to do more damage when he's trying to vomit. Hope all goes well.

at least it wasnt san andreas. just make sure he urinates and poops normally. If his stool or urine has blood or he seems like he has trouble take him to the vet asap. I would take away his food bowl for awhile and give him plenty of water. Try not to feed him until tomorrow in the evening or after he poops. Good luck!
Take her to the vet NOW, not only if she has trouble.
You need her to get an xray ASAP. If the piices are in the stomach, they will be MUCH easier to get out than if they proceed into the bowel where they could cause an obstruction or injury. Then she'd require surgery for sure.
Lets say a piece just cuts into the bowel and cauises a slow bleed. After awhile, the area becomes infected. Your dog could die.
yeah i figured the peroxide might cause cuts coming back up but its better than letting it go out the other way. if you did it right away it would just be in the upper stomache and if it didn't cut going down...i mean it was swallowed so it couldnt be that sharp. it shouldnt cut coming back up. but its too late now..go see a vet.
PLEASE TAKE HERSHEY TO THE VET! I F THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN TEACUP, I THINK I WOULD HAD RAN EVERY RED LIGHT THERE WAS . BELEIVE ME THE LONGER YOU WAIT THE MORE IT'S GOING TO COST YOU!! YOU ASK FOR OUR ADVISE NOW USE IT. YOURE' DEALING WITH DOG LOVERS . PLEASE GO !!!!!!!! ''SORRY'' I HAD TO USE THE CAPS FOR YOU .SO YOU SEE, HOW SERIOUS THIS IS . IT WOULD HURT ME TO MY HEART TO READ ABOUT HERSEY LATER ON. GET GOING! LET US KNOW HOW HERSEY DOING LATER ON . OK
I called Hershey's vet this morning. They said that Hershey should get x-ray's costing anywhere from $95-$160. I don't have pet insurance on Hershey and so it would be totally out of pocket for me. It just seems like a lot of money if they end up finding nothing wrong. Hershey is feeling fine. I will follow the other instructions from the vet. They instructed me to feed Hershey soft foods for awhile instead of her usual dry dog foods. Also, she should drink plenty of water. If Hershey runs a fever or has blood in her stools than she definitely will need to be seen right away by her vet. So far, I've seen no problems. I will keep everyone posted about how Hershey's Kisses II is doing. Thank you all for caring.

Wow. So dogs can't eat bones because the sharp pieces will cut their organs. What makes you think a disc won't do the same???? Ever break a cd in half? You know how all the pieces shatter and can cut you? Imagine that in your belly. Get that damn dog to the vet and get those x-rays, or you don't deserve to have her. How did you buy her if you can't afford $100 for an xray? What did you think, she was going to cost nothing??
I just had to pay out $200 to treat my dogs ear infections. I only expected the bill to be about $50.. I didn't realize he'd need such intense treatment. I really don't have that kind of money, but guess what? He's my dog. When I bought him I took on the responsibility of anything he needs. So I paid it. It's like a child. If your child ate a cd, would you be sitting here waiting for blood in her diaper???

Maggie, you are playing with fire. I can't believe for under 200 bucks, you're putting your dog's life in jeopardy. Borrow the money and get the xrays, for goodness sakes. The longer you wait, the worse the situation will get. Of course he's fine, NOW. In a few days, he could be bleeding internally. Geesh.
Cider ate a small piece of dental floss.. I was so damn afraid that it would get stuck.. and even though I looked I never saw it come out.. I was on edge for a week.. But when I called the vet, I was told that being small it would be okay, and that it most likely wasn't xrayable.
If it was I would have been going. The thought of something as sharp as a broken cd in my furbabys tummy would be frightening.
Maggie, .....the dog needed taken to the vet BEFORE it was permanently damaged! Would you have taken your child to the ER if he ate glass.....or no if you dont have health insurance. That is YOUR responsibility as a pet owner , if you cannot afford a vet bill or to arrange payments with the vet to protect your dog, then you need to give him to someone who can
