Dog eating Maple seed pods

6 posts in this topic

So my neighbor has a maple tree in their backyard that is currently shedding those annoying helicopter seed pods. Normally its juts annoying but this year I have a dog who seems to enjoy eating them.

He's a Vizsla and a little over 13 weeks old. Basically at that age he wants to eat or atleast taste everything.

Last night and this morning I noticed he [PoorWordUsage] a much larger amount then normal which could be partially attributed to me increasing his food portions but it seemed a little more then just that. Also it was a little runny when coming out.

Also he's been sneezing up a storm the last couple days.

I'm not sure if his eating the seed pods as anything to do with either thing. I try to keep him from eating things off the ground as much as possible but with millions of those pods in my backyard right now its a lossing battle. Would these seed pods hurt him at all or maybe just give him a little upset stomach?

I'm taking him to the vet tomorrow for some more vaccinations so I'll ask them as well but I thought I would post the question here to see what you all might think.

Sorry, I have no idea about the seed pods. We have a ton of them, too. I can't imagine they'll do much harm, though.

My dog's been sneezing up a storm lately, too.

I'm thinking the sneezing is more of an allergy thing.

My thoughts, too, but he's been hacking a bit, too, so we're making a vet visit tonight frown

my little guy was hacking a little the other day as well but that has seemed to go away. The sneezing seems to have taken its place.

my 10 month old brings in these darn pods from a bottle tree we have. he will sit and crunch on them and same thing start sneezing. I give him a benedryl to help with his allergies. Not sure what to say about the maple pods the ones i have a fairly large in size like golf ball. One lesson we learned was he does not go out without supervision until he is a bit older. good luck

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
