My Weimaraners eat anything they can find! They ate a hammer, a tennis ball, a tennis racket, a bunch of rocks, a bed, 4 bark collars, batteries, pencils, books. I have some really weird and amazing things that you would never think a dog could eat! Please paw-mail me and I will tell you what all they ate or just give me the website!

My dog is a second generation "chow-hound". His mom, Cedar, which we owned also, ate everything from an entire shoe and pooped out the tread, eyelets and the laces to a battery from a shelf four-high & burnt half her tongue. Thankfully, Cedar was also born with a gene that allowed her to digest all of this with relative ease.
Her son, General still chows just about anything, but just can't digest it. He began throwing up & I just thought he got into something bad until he was still doing it two days later. When I took him to the vet they decided to do surgery and found a 3in long corn cob stuck in his intestines. It was the one from my birthday dinner that my husband threw to the deer in the woods near our house. While recovering from this $1000 surgery, since he had puked on all his other bedding I had put a blanket in his crate I don't normally used and he ate part of that and got the string stuck in his intestines and had to have surgery again 3 weeks after his 1st surgery.

My dog ate about 40 straight pins... and some miscellaneous sequins from a Christmas ornament. She survived after surgery and a six day stay at the vet to get the last few pins out of her. She was amazingly happy and did not act like she was in pain at all.

My Morkie-Poo ate 56cents, 2 quarters, a nickle and a penny. The penny, however, was toxic to his blood. The penny started to disinigrate and the zinc went into his blood making him severely anemic. A trip to the animal ER, surgery and post-ops, he is doing ok. When they took the penny out, it was in the shape of a "C" because it was dissolving. The quaters and nickles were still in tact. The vet said if he had stuck to the quaters and nickles he would have been ok. So, he cost us the surgery and on top of it the 56 cents too!!!!!
