I recently lost my 6 month old puppy to intestinal blockage . The blockage was caused by her eating the strings from a rope toy.

Due to the puppy chewing and chewing on the toy, she was able to remove pieces and swallow them.  Of course, as soon as I was aware of the situation, I removed the toy. But it was too late. 

We rushed her to the vet after she started vomiting repeatedly.  The pieces of rope were in her stomach and intestines. 

The problem begins when the pieces of rope get caught in the intestines. As the rope is moved, either by natural movement or pulled by the vet, it pulls on the intestines which causes the string to slice through the tissue with ease. 

As the rope toys become more "indestructible," they also become more dangerous. The addition of plastic not only makes the string stronger, but it becomes easier to be caught by the intestines and in turn, cause more perforations and tears. 

The toy in question was purchased at Walmart for Christmas. 

Please remove all rope toys for all animals. 

Thank you for your time.
