most often socks do not pass through their system. they usually get stuck and its when it gets stuck that it starts to cause an issue. signs of an obstruction include loss of appetite, vomiting, and lethargy. if she starts to exhibit these signs then chances are she is obstructed and will need surgery to remove the sock. most often vets will perform what is called a barium series where they feed the dog a white liquid that shows up on xray and then take a series of xrays over several hours to determine if she did indeed eat something and where it is stuck. if you a 100 percent positive she ate the sock, some people just think their odgs ate something, then you can save a little money by bypassing the xrays and go right for the surgery. just keep an eye on her and watch for any signs there is a problem and make sure she doesn't eat anything else in the meanwhile. goldens and labradors are notorius for eating things they shouldn't !! good luck
One of my champion studs ate a little "Pumba" stuffed animal toy as a puppy (Timon & Pumba from The Lion King). Anyway, it got lodged in his SI. I knew he was in trouble when he would try to eat but minutes later he would throw up and the vomit had a distinct fecal smell and appearance. $1500.00 dollars later, problem resolved. Stupid Dog!
