Things your dog has eaten...that it shouldn't have! - Page 2

Sisal door mat, the interior of a cargo van, weather stripping off the front door, screen off the back door, tennis balls...


Crud, he's a lab mix, what doesn't he eat is a better question

On one Lab forum that I used to post on, another poster asked about her labs poop eating issues (which I read with great interest, since mine has the same gross habit) and all the people who had had labs longer told her she should just consider it another food group! Then they went on and on about all the stuff their labs ate. These labs are something, aren't they??!!

Ooooh so it's a LAB thing?? No wonder!

I think it's a German Shepherd thing, too. One time we went out and left the couches on the back lawn to dry after a good clean. They ate them. We got home two hours later and the couches were GONE. It was surreal.

I stand corrected!

It's just that labs tend to be leaders.
There seems to be more cases of labs/lab mixes going in for surgery to have foreign material removed from their digestive tracts than any other breeds.

Rocks and beauty bark seem to be a huge favorite with them.

Actually, labs are known eaters as they are bred to be "mouthy".
As the hunting dog that RETRIEVES birds and other prey for its masters/mistresses, it just has that intrinsic LOVE of something in the mouth!



As for my previous Pups (at RB now), Sid (a huge black dobe cross) was the WORST.
Once when his recall was weak and I was stupid, I attempted to get him to come to me with a diaper in his mouth..A dirty diaper. Someone had changed their baby on the beach and left it there! I did finally get...well half of it back.
Also, he loved Kleenex/tissues out of the garbage.
Once, in the midst of company, he lovingly brought down a used condom from the bin beside my bed and proceeded to lay down and gnaw it. Then imagine my embarrassment as I had to carry said item to garbage in full view of guests.

After that, I got wise, and did the right thing...Dogproofed my home like I would a child.
From the sounds it, you should all do the same!

Our house is soooo dog-proofed, but they still manage to get things!! Little devils, don't know how they do it!

Well, these weren't my dogs, but this week 2 dogs had to have exploratory surgery at my clinic, one for eating dental floss that got entwined in his gut, and the other ate his mommy's underwear! Imagine your dog is in surgery and they pull out YOUR underwear from him!

The funniest thing my dogs ate (Soul - GSD 11 years old at the time and Jazz - 13 year old mutt) was five whole defrosting chickens including wrapping that were on the bench thawing out for my Mums 30th.

The day after we went out into the yard and we find drum stick sized bones in their poop. They'd just swallowed them whole!

After we had called and the vet and stuff we just had to laugh.

Well, I don't know what Chester's been eating but he's off to the vet in half an hour, too. Has completely liquid diarrhoea, is throwing up (and it has plastic in it, God knows where he got that) and is lethargic and miserable with a temperature, too, I think.

They ate Blood & Bone fertiliser the other day, the vet told us they'd get sick from it, but it was nearly a week ago and Ruby is fine, Chester is, well, as sick as a dog! So off to the vet - AGAIN - in a minute!

My favourite x-ray I have ever taken was a 5 month old Dachsund puppy who ate a huge pair of diamond stud earrings!! The little monkey--in order to get to them, she somehow got onto the owner's bed, jumped onto a chair, then the dresser, then opened her jewellery box!! Luckily she crapped them out a few hours later.

My dog Sharie ALWAYS eats stuff out of the tiny bathroom garbage. Like bathroom cups, tissues, and umm etc heh. So I'm looking into getting one of those mini garbage cans where you step on the petal and it opens so she can't get it. I usually try to keep the bathroom door closed but she manages to push it open with her head. Lately I've been putting the bathroom waste basket on the counter in the bathroom though

She also eats sticks and chews on just about anything on the ground....Not good....

A lot of dogs figure those types of pails out rather quickly. I keep my bathroom garbage inside the cabinet under the sink. Do you have any hidden space?
