Can you still plug them in?

My dog did the same thing. X-ray looked pretty much the same.

"With the Christmas season upon us, I'd advise owners to keep any edible items out of reach of inquisitive pets to avoid them from becoming ill over the festive season."

Is 'inquisitive" the new way of saying "dumber than a bag of rocks"?

Christmas lights = edible items?

Its vets see many cases of pets getting their paws on inappropriate festive items every year, ranging from Christmas decorations, chocolate and cocktail sticks to toys, balloons and bones - all a familiar sight in many homes during the holidays.

Bones are a "festive item" now?

Literally a "light meal."

I GISd "festive bones" with a bit of NSFW hesitation, luckily none of that but I did find this gem.

Ms Fay, who aptly refers to her dog as the "light of her life"

You no name dog "Light of Life", You name dog "shiat Head"!

Ours just had surgery to remove a 8 inch by 14 inch towel that he swallowed in one gulp. And also tried to eat the IV gauze the nurse was holding.

Oh labradors.

Meh. A gastrotomy and you're done in fifteen minutes. Not that impressive on the foreign body list.

Oh god, so true. Absolutely love him, but to be perfectly honest, I'm tired of puling pillow fluff out his arse. He's still a puppy, so I'm hoping this eating stage will slow down at some point. Maybe. In a few years.

Give it 2 years. It will slow down a lot, but no, it's never going to go away altogether.

Not-so-CSB: We had 2 labs, a yellow and a black, that we got at the same time as pups. When they were about a year old I had finally had enough of them destroying EVERYTHING in the backyard while we were at work (cable, telephone, the insulation on the gas meter, the TREES) so I had the bright idea to build a chain-link kennel on the deck. (so they couldn't dig under) Next day when I got home from work the frickin dogs had chewed through the deck and were waiting at the back door to be let in.

Just this past week my dog ate the contents of a dirty diaper.

So gross

My little asshole of a dog ate half of one of my 15 yo Durango harness boots today.

He's wearing a muzzle when I'm at work for now on.

Asshole.

Mingus has only eaten a few things he shouldn't. One being my weed dug out when he was a puppy. The others... used tampons.

I live in a small house, so when I became an atheist, the second thing to go was the tree. I was pretty tired of picking it up off the floor when the furry torpedo would launch out of it.

Furry torpedo died this past year, but the house is still small, I'm still an atheist, and the remaining cat, the furry zeppelin, would probably knock it over, too.

/First thing to go was the notion that bad people get punished.

Ah, how I miss my high school days as a kennel keeper at an animal hospital. The vets put their kids through college surgically removing the many strange things that dogs had managed to eat, or making them barf up the chocolate they managed to get into during holidays. One lady wrapped boxes of chocolate and left them under the tree. Her dogs smelled the chocolate and helped themselves. One dog ate an entire corn cob, another ate the head of a mop. Pork chop bones, ribbons, pieces of a sewing kit, you name it, we found it in a dog.

The best one was the vet's own husky mix, ate his socks and underwear. I was instructed to watch for 'sock and briefs production', he managed to pass them without difficulty, surprisingly.

You throw the Tannenbaum out when you become an atheist. That's a weird ritual.

Besides, you are a pagan.

Tinsel? I haven't had that. I've pulled out plants and dental floss. Fun times.

abhorrent1: My dog did the same thing. X-ray looked pretty much the same.


Mine did too. When he was a pup he was always swallowing things around the house, speaker wire, shoes, lamp cords etc. My hubby was building me a wine rack on boxing day one year and we were sure he swallowed some nails that were on the floor. December 26, no Vet open off we haul him to the Emergency Animal Hospital for X-rays, they found no nails but the Xray showed some speaker wire he had eaten a week or so before, 500.00 later for the Vet bill for the Xrays and we were back home.

This will be our last Christmas with him as he is just an old yellow lab now and having a really hard time getting around, we doubt he will make it until spring.


HUG YOUR PETS PEOPLE, THEY LEAVE US TOO SOON.
