Add on> I should also make note that the crayons my dog ate were crayola and stated non-toxic right on the box. You might want to check the ingredients just to be sure and call your vet to see if they agree...better safe than sorry always.
Even when you dog proof your home accidents can still happen. For instance, has your Sheltie recently discovered the art of eating crayons? If your dog ate a crayon call your vet to ask what you should do. You may need to look on the paper of other crayons to figure out if the crayon was non-toxic. Most crayons are. Your vet may also recommend that you keep an eye on your Sheltie’s bowel movements as constipation may occur. If your dog does get constipated and unable to pass the crayon or anything else, call your vet. In most cases, your Sheltie will pass the crayon without any trouble. The only thing you will notice is a color change in your Sheltie’s poop.
Re: Dog ate crayon: what to do?!
Brief update: apart from the fact I have stertorous snores wafting up from under my desk, Heros seems brighter today and ate some breakfast (half his usual quantity of pellets, topped up with a slice of bread) and generally seems more interested in life
