The thread was probably 4-6 inches long. While I am waiting for a thread-wrapped poop to come out, is there any signs/concerns to be watching for? I know some of the obvious. Has anyone had to deal with this?
- Got Pigs?
I had one of my girls eat the strings (ties off a cape that one of our members here Windespirit made me.) I had it beside their cage on a table, it must of been too close and next day I saw the cape had no tie strings anymore.
All must of been fine, that was last year and I didnt ever see it come out or whatever.

It should pass through without a problem. It certainly never disagreed with Vicky!

Forgive me for smiling at your predicament, but you described this so perfectly you had me laughing out loud. I could picture both a little child stuffing down chocolate as quickly as possibly and your little piggie hurriedly scarfing down his newly-discovered “treat” before you could get to him.
Hope all goes through OK!
That was my concern. I will keep watching so far all the poops just keep on coming and he doesn't look to be feeling any different. Maybe pigs can handle a little string because all the fiber that is going through as well???One end will often get stuck and the other end keeps going. It ends up pulling the intestines together like an accordion. Very bad, sometimes if cuts as it pulls.
Do I need to have these taken care of at the vet (a different one) or will he grind this down on his own?
He could have done this to himself as well. He is a dish flipper. He likes to stand on the edge of his bowl and flip it over so all the food spills on the ground. He may have hit himself in the face resulting in broken teeth?? I really have no clue what happened.
