What the dog ate now?

4 posts in this topic

In reading the topic of what the dogs ate, I will add I have had dogs eat bottle caps and tv remote Battery's. I got a tip from the vet at the U to use Hydrogen paroxide in small amounts right away after you see them eat somthing they were not supposed to and could be harmfull. They will vommit the stuff up in most cases right away.I know of guy's that had dogs eat rat poison too and this worked to get allot of it out in time to have a vet check the dog, However I have done this but am not going to tell anyone to do so or how much to use, but you can check with a vet and they should be able to give you a good opinion on how much paroxide for which breed to use.Yes they do eat some pretty strange things. Some definately make you laugh and some scare the heck out a ya.

I've used a 50/50 water & peroxide mix to get my dog to throw up a bunch of cough drops and wrappers and it worked great. The key is to do this as soon as possible after ingestion.

However, I would assume with poisons and things along those lines you might not want to use this method. I would always contact a vet first, but many bottles with harsh chemicals say "if ingested, DO NOT induce vommiting".

Ask your vet. It does have a # on some brand bottles you can call too and the help desk does answer some of this stuff. I just don't want to be the person doing any recomendations on what to do for the well being of someones dog. But the U gave the guy I know the paroxide treatment right away for his spaniel eating rat poison and a few weeks later he had the now healthy dog at a National field trial and the darn dog ate a plastic bag and he had to do it there too, It worked and he finished all 5 series of the trial, So check with the vet or call the U and ask them to get your own advice from a pro.It can be usefull is all I can say.

    •   They're a little different because they had a boxed frame, which tended to collect mud and hold moisture, so it's tough to find an older one with a solid frame.  The frame usually rotted out ahead of the rear wheels.   http://www.carproblemzoo.com/jeep/wrangler/frame-rust-problems.php
    • Mostly body rust. Rocker panels, fenders and the rear corners. Not really any different than any pickup truck.
    • I am out in MN this morning.  Flock gobbling in the valley below me.  Going to start with my bow this time.  Have a few days to hunt.  Oh and Sutty is with me.  Set up across the field with one of his daughters.  Trying to talk him into picking up a youth tag for her.
    • Time to try again.  Not a sound yet. Next day and a half is about turkeys!
    •   They're definitely a nice rig for the backroads, and they hold their value very well if they're kept in decent shape.  The biggest issue with the older Jeeps, including CJs, is they are serious rusters - including frame rust.   Not sure if they ever resolved the rust issues or not with the newer models.  A buddy of mine has a Wrangler Unlimited, and he really likes it.  I think he has a little too much invested in it to use it for an off-road rig, though, so it probably qualifies more in the "fulfilling childhood dreams" category than a true bush buggy....              
    • Was doing some work in the woods today and found these. Of course I stopped and spent two hours looking for more, but this was it. Oh well, will probably be the earliest I've ever gotten to eat them.  
    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
