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.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
