dog ate roll of t.p. Worry?

21 posts in this topic

Got home a little while ago and one of the dogs made a nearly a full roll of 2-ply disappear. She seems 100% fine at this time. Think she will be ok? Any one have this same thing happen before?

My 5 month old pup eats kleenex and paper towels all the time. He seems to wait until we turn our heads and then he goes right for them. He's never eaten a whole roll of TP however.

He usually just passes it like anything else. You'll probably notice when it comes out because it will look very similar to when it went in.

I think that perhaps dogs are working on a new way to wipe a behind. Now they can wipe while still in the process of going.

go out back to my bathroom at my shop no T.P! The pouch will be fine, mine has ate much worse.

I would be a little concerned, but I would probably just keep an eye on it and making sure it's eating and defacating normally for the next few weeks. TP is meant to break down, so I would think it'll pass without too much problem.

Well 15 hours or more later every thing seems fine. I haven't noticed the finished product yet, but I am thinking it will come out soon.

Thanks for the replies! With all the things my dogs have eaten, I still get worried when they discover something new.

spray a little 50/50 mix tabascco and water on some TP then let your dog give it a whirl, one take and that should take care of it

I did discover just the other day that my pup got ahold of one of my socks and ate the entire thing. I didn't realize until it came out the other end still completely intact.

No wonder he threw up the night before.

So i have a young boxer and last summer we had a friend watch her and the wifes cat. he had instructions that if he was to leave that he shut the door to our bed room where the cat always was so as to sperate our then 6 month old very fiesty pup from the cranky older cat. well sure enough he leaves and does not shut the door cause he felt sorry for the cat being cooped up while the dog had free rein even though the cat never really leaves the room. So in the time he is gone our pup discovers my wifes shampoo and conditioner which she ate the majority of along with a full bar of soap and 6 yes 6 toilet paper rolls. when he returns there are huge piles of foamy toilet paper puke piles all over the house. he being an less than inteligent individual didnt see the need to call us and inform us of this or bring her to the vet. granted she was just fine when we got home from the weekend but still. she has also eatin a whole tube of anit secnet deoderant for deer hunting . i love my dog dearly but man i think she is a lil damaged sometimes

Once time my dog got a hold of a large bag of bite sized 3 musketeers.

I could tell every time she went for 2 days after that since there were shiny tinfoils in each pile.

My buddy was just telling me about his lab/collie mix. It ate an entire package of steel wool. Some with some cleaner residue on them. Needless to say that required a trip to the vet, sounds like they made her throw them all up with no ill effects.

I guess you cant blame the dryer for eating your left socks anymore.

Funny stories, had a co-worker with 2 cats, one managed to take down and swallow one of those blind pull cords. Guy didn't notice anything until it began to show itself, so he is telling this story about calling and being on the phone with the vet. Vet tells him to let it pass naturally, do not try and pull it out yourself. Those words no sooner are transmitted on the phone when cat #2 runs up, grabs the loose string and bolts removing the entire length of cord. grin

No harm to either cat, I think my friend had a minor heart attack at that moment though

I almost feel kind of bad for saying this, but some of these posts made me laugh out loud.My dog is also a fan of kleenex and toilet paper. He has never had any problems wit it. Why do they like that paper so much??

I don't know what it is with the paper either, mine would do TP, paper towel even envelopes. Ya, the stories are funny when they have a good ending

Careful...animal intestines are just like humans - they're all coiled up. What you did had the possibility to bind them all up into a big knot!

Glad it came out OK, I'm just speaking from experience as my wifes cat had to have surgery after eating 2 feet of dental floss. Talk about expensive...

Also, to the owner of the boxer - pretty brave leaving a 6 month old puppy to roam the house! You're either more courageous than me, or you're tired of your old stuff and ready to buy new!

To the OP - you should be OK. Dogs are meant to pass things with ease - mine has passed blankets, a nail, pieces of toys, corn, toilet paper, and chicken bones.

    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
