Bad hair day for Mr. Bird! big laugh

I know Duke has trouble digesting some things, but do you think maybe the dead bird was covered in bacteria and parasites and so his body just went into "evacuate" mode and pushed the bird out as fast as possible without digesting it? thinking

I know, so gross!! silenced

I truly just think his body didn't even recognize it as food. Or something. I really don't know. He has chronic digestive issues...he can't digest more than about 3 oz of bone at a time. Any more than that and it comes out in huge, undigested chunks. I made the mistake of giving him a too-big pork rib last week and the next day he pooped out a HUGE (about 3") section of it. Sometimes bone will come out partially digested and pliable.

For whatever reason, Duke's gut just doesn't digest like most dogs' do. He has ingested foreign objects before and they always come out in the poop, rarely as vomit.
