And a pet can die from eating string because it rips their intestines to shreds.

Their stomachs aren't magical garbage disposals or anything.  Except for labradors which have a naturally occurring black hole in their belly.

Bees. My dog used to eat bees. He also ate stinkbugs. Didn't enjoy them but forced them down anyway. WTF, dog?

maybe you should throw your old underwear out before they can't be distinguished between 'string'.

That was a comprehensive and thorough article. Now I know exactly why seaweed can be
harmful to dogs. Thank you, Guernsey Press.

Yoshi, we can't go out for sushi because some vet warned that seaweed can kill you.
The good news is, he didn't say anything about the tin snips or the wino at the corner of 2nd & Franklin.

People come into my shop to buy trinkets and stuffed animals for their pets.  They get a bit miffed when I tell them it isn't a good idea and the items are not for pets.  They still buy it anyways.  batteries, stuffing, plastic, key chains and gears tend not to be good for dogs.

Problem is people now days don't view dogs or cats as pets, they view them as little people.  They forget that dogs do dog things like eat random stuff or chew.  Those people are just stupid and it's a pain in the ass to deal with them.

One product that always gets a chuckle out of me is vegan cat food.  Simply put if you have a problem with feeding an obligate carnivore then don't own one.

My dog swallows these whole - then gasps, gags, foams at the mouth.  Then finally looks up at me with a wagging tail and an expression of 'why you look so serious?'

Yesterday, I discovered that my brother's pug seems love love kale. I was prepping some to make chips in the oven, and a few leaves fell on the floor. Of course she leaped in to eat them, but usually with vegetables, she chews and then gets disappointed that it's not something better. She was kind of going nuts for it. When my kale chips were done and out of the oven, she was even more interested in eating them.

Weird dog.

I was assuming TFA would be about dogs finding iodine toxic, but the article mentions intestinal obstruction. Why is seaweed any more of a risk of that than hundreds of other tough, stringy land plants?

My lab eats live frogs.

One time I was cleaning up his poop and came across a kitchen sponge. Not a chewed up sponge, a full* sponge in the middle of his poop. Stupid dog must have swallowed the thing whole and pooped it out later. He's luck he's not dead.

*Actually, I cut my sponges in half because I am cheap. I just wanted to make it clear that he did not chew the thing up.

One of our cats likes seaweed.  We only give him a tiny sliver at time though, not the whole farking thing,  You would be stupid as hell to just feed them an entire piece at once.

My old black lab/rottie used to eat gravel. I had a box in the old garage. Didn't notice until I was picking up the poop. Looked like the gravel version of a Payday bar.

My old pit bull mix once swallowed an entire pressed rawhide roll. It passed out whole; I had no idea that she'd eaten it.

It seems amazing that dogs haven't eaten themselves out of the gene pool.

My buddies dog eats cigarette butts.  Not that big a deal I guess and the vet said it shouldn't be an issue, but he also likes to try to eat lit firecrackers.  Fortunately he never got one to my knowledge.
 
2013-08-23 10:04:14 AM
My dog once (which looks like a gremlin) ate one of those little dishwasher soap packets with the built-in goo in the dissolvable skin one time, and she didn't even throw up or have any ill effects I could see. Nothing can kill that dog.
 
2013-08-23 10:09:25 AM
Basically we've bred dogs down the food chain from their spot as an apex predator capable of taking down moose, elk, and buffalo to the point where they can be killed by inanimate plants.

My beagle has eaten (in no particular order) dryer sheets, an SOS pad, socks, corn cobs, a single dice (die?), and bees. Some of the above passed without issue, some she hocked up, and she needed assistance with the dryer sheet (if you know what I mean (and I think you do)).

My damn dog somehow got the cord to my Dewalt charger pulled into his crate. I had to have grabbed a clothes hanger from the top, fashioned it into a grabbing stick to get it, because the cord was a good foot away. Well he ate the damn thing like licorice twizzlers. Including the farking prong. I come home and he's all *hurk* *hurk* *BLEEEECH* and there is pieces of power cord and an entire prong.

WTF is wrong with you dog?

My greyhound once ate an entire bar of soap. Irish Spring, I believe.

I woke up in the middle of the night to find a house FULL of foamy puke and bubbly shiat.

We had a lab when I was a kid who ate her leash. Didn't chew it, just swallowed it whole. We heard her howling the next day and found her butt scooting on the carpet, trying to get it out. My mom had to pull it out for her. We were amazed that she was fine afterwards.

Our yellow lab never actually ate anything... She just brought stuff home. A baby rabbit here, a live pheasant there, always unharmed. So one day when she wandered into the kitchen shaking with excitement and smiling that big smile that only labs do, we were sure she had a turtle or something in her mouth. Mom ordered the dog to "drop it!", and she did. There was a "splat" and a wave of foul stench as the decaying muskrat head rolled between my mom's feet. You've never seen three kids scatter so fast. Poor old mom was left there shouting, "Get back here! This is YOUR dog! I didn't want this damn dog!"

/good times, good times...
//And don't even get me started with cat turds. My current bull dog thinks they're candy...

Always be careful near the ocean or streams where adromonous fish are possible.  Never let them eat any fish near these water bodies and never feed your dog any raw salmon or steelhead   Rickettsia is hell on dogs.

My Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix tried to eat a dead frog. I've seen pieces of carpet in his sh*t. He's a great dog, but totally nuts.

Also most sugar free gum/sugar free things can be INCREDIBLY TOXIC to dogs. The artificial sweetener Xylitol is apparently really, *really* dangerous for them.

My rat terrier eats potato bugs by first flattening them with the side of his head to squeeze out all tasty innard-goo. Then later he'll leave the denuded exoskeleton in my bed. It's horrifying.

Our Chow/Shepherd mix likes picking up horned toads and carrying them around. She hasn't eaten one yet, probably because we've been able to catch her before she decides to chomp down on one.

One morning around 3:00 am she decided to play with a skunk. I think she actually learned something from that episode.

My Dalmatian when I was a kid loved standing by flowers and snapping bees out of the air.

My long-time ago buddy- a silky terrier ate the woodwork, so the vet suggested using hot sauce as a deterrent. He ate it twice as fast.
He used to steal our lighters and hide them, and chew the daylights out of 'unbreakable' combs.

My chessie, still alive despite all of her efforts to blow out her intestinal tract has eaten- a marble, dice, d&d figurines, drywall, hair ties, hair scrunchies, whole acorns, bees, nintendo ds games, linoleum tile, weeds, grass, leaves, sticks, snails, dirt, rocks (both small and wtf size)
* deep breath *
toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, stickers, erasers, a pen, a pencil (at least she chewed those)
coins, yarn, hemp twine, flowers, a bit of carpet, playing cards, entire blocks of post-it notes, bread ties, doll stuffing, a button, the outside layer of a tennis ball, nerf darts, and any lists I may make that I'm dumb enough to leave where she can get it.
And no, I'm not particularly messy or particularly stupid. Chessies eat anything.
I felt like I was being a terrible owner, but the breeder reassured me it was typical. Her prize champion stud chessie- also an agility, hunting, and handling champion- ate a whole towel she'd hung up on a fencepost when she wasn't looking. Emergency surgery was required.
So, chessies is dumb and will eat anything, anytime, anywhere.
She's given up some of her evil ways in her older age, thank goodness.

But my dogs love seaweed!  Especially the wasabi-coated stuff.  One of them also likes popcorn and soybeans.  They balk at carrots though.

There was a thread a week or so a go about a kitten that almost staved to death because of the vegan died it's humans fed it. Dogs and cats need meat to live. If you don't like that  to bad, all your doing is torturing the pet you claim to love.

We got a little rat dog forced on us (Boston Terrier/Long-haired Chihuahua/pug mix, he's really cute) when little bro had to move for work. He's grown on me like a fungus, but damned if he doesn't go after all sorts of things. He loves tearing apart wastebaskets without food in them - he loves shredding paper towels, and once gnawed up a cherry chapstick pretty good. He got the nickname 'anteater' after he chewed up one of those ant baits (non toxic, mercifully). Big dog (golden retriever/pit/shepherd mix) loves bugs and carrots.

Surprisingly, my lab loves lakes but hates the ocean.
So his chances of eating that seaweed are much reduced...

Anyone else with an ocean-phobic dog that otherwise loves water?

A few months back, I noticed our yellow lab, Cooper (named because he looks like Anderson Cooper) wasn't wearing his harness.  I figured my daughter had taken it off of him.  She assumed I had done the same.  Once we finally figured out neither one of us had taken it off, we realized he had eaten the entirety of a nylon harness except for the metal ring and plastic clips.  Bits of said harness made appearances in the yard for awhile after that.  We still don't know how it managed to get out of it.

Yep, my old pit mix was that way. I think it was the waves. She'd run towards the ocean, but then haul ass back when the waves came in. But she'd dive right in a river or creek, even when you didn't want her getting wet.
