This happened to my dog when she was 7 mos old. We held an ice cream bar for her to lick and her tongue wrapped around the stick and down it went. It was New Years Day and emergency care said to bulk her up with food to help it pass. I was worried and brought her to my vet the next day. She took an x ray and there it was, clear as day. So it most definitely will show up on an x ray. The stick was in a transverse position, which meant it would never pass out through her intestines. She was scheduled for surgery the next day. An hour prior to surgery time, she miraculously vomited the stick up. To this day, I do not allow ice cream on a stick in the house. My girl is now 15.View Thread
