Worst thing your dog has ever eaten?

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

Never Say No

We just got back from the emergency vet. I was in a panic after getting home from work when I found a ripped up tin can in the crate with Nix. BF and I collected all the pieces and found there was not enough tin shards to make up a full can... therefore Nix must have eaten at least half!!

I don't know how BF missed a tin can when he locked Nix in the crate, but he did... so we called the e-vet and took him in. They did x-rays only to find there is nothing in Nix's little guts. I don't know where the rest of that can is (we searched the area thoroughly!) but we're just relieved it's not in his belly!!!

So.. out of curiosity, what is the worst thing your dog has ever eaten?

Part of a beach towel = emergency bowel obstruction surgery.

Other than that, nothing horrible. Of course, that was enough!

Corn cobs.

And this was well before we realized just how dangerous those can be.

Luckily the majority of it came back up that evening and the rest passed through just fine.

Pieces of an air conditioner remote that he destroyed, the ears and the top of the head of a stuffed aminal, and a small piece of cooked bones that he found outside.

Oddly enough that was the only toy he ever ate or destroyed. He loved that toy so I think he was sad it broke and that I took it from him and threw it away.

Maggie ate lot of plastic stuff as a puppy... mostly food wrappers out of the trash. Didn't even know she had done it a lot of the time until I saw it in her poo out in the yard. silenced

Sabi... did Freeway seriously EAT all that stuff, or just chew it up? Man, that dog had bit of an oral fixation you could say.

An acquaintance of mine in California had his dog eat his entire stock of marijuana plants... they were immature so not psychoactive yet. Also destroyed his front door and all his truck upholstery. Said dog was a Great Dane/German Shepherd mix, best guess.

My boy coughed up a 3 inch nail once. I think it was in his can of dog food! Another reason never to buy cheapo chow! He was fine but it was very disturbing.

Another thing he 'ate' was a cd with all the evidence my hubby needed to sue his old boss for entitlements... $20,000 worth. It was in the computer drive, little bugger pushed the eject button with his nose and plucked it out. We found it chewed up later. Needless to say his boss got off. I guess that's one way to put a dollar value on your dog!

Most of a tennis ball.Vomitted up the pieces over the next three hours. Had to sort through all the vomit to reassemble.
A piece of cooked steak bone too large to pass
Another tennis ball.
A baseball
An entire bag of doggie treats including the plastic bag.
Mika chewed didn't eat stuff,same with other dogs.
We were pretty sure at one point we were going to miss something and Kai wouldn't last to see 6 months. Hes so much better now.
Forgot to mention the ball and trim from the newel post in the stairwell,a window sill and the top piece of about 6ft. of woodwork from various locations near the steps to the second floor.
