Guess what my dog ate now...

Recommended Posts

prov1900

My Chesapeake Bay Retriever, sometime in the middle of the night, got a hold of one or two of the handwarmer packets and apparently liked them.

Her diarreah is charcoal black, due to the fact (I imagine) the activated charcoal within the packet.

I called my vet and they didn't seem too concerned, however wanted me to bring her in to treat the diarreah.

The dog acts fine, other than the liquid black stuff coming our her rear end.

I know that activated charcoal is used as an "anti-poison".

Anyone with experience in this?

Hey, activated charcoal is what makes scent blocker and scentlok work, I bet your dog is "scent free" for a month!!!

In all seriousness, it sounds like he is fine and I cerntainly hope everythign turns out ok.

Charcoal will just adsorb the stomach contents. They use a similar product for overdoses. Your dog will be fine

Thanks for the replies, or better yet, reassurance. She is doing fine. This afternoon, she let go of another (seemingly) gallon of motor oil out the rear and hasn't had any since. Drinking water fine.

My dog ate the strings from a porketta on Monday. Tuesday at lunch I was helping him by pulling them out of his rear end. I'm sure he was in heaven when he found a few scraps and those strings that tasted like the porketta. Luckily, he passed all of them.

My dog sure didn't like it when I pulled a bread bag out of his rear.

yesterday, my lab decided to check out my money clip. The boy has taste. Chewed up the 10s and 20s only a few bite marks in the 1s, D.L. and a couple of credit cards are toast. I called the wifey this morning and asked her if she had seen any change laying around, she said no why? I told her that I was hoping he would at least give me some change back

A while back my parents baught a shitzou or how ever you spell it and she had and still has a fasination with baloons one time my youngest brother left a back of them on the ground and she ate all of them. Didn't take long for them to come out either. Let's just say I was't going to "taste that rainbow"

I don't care who you are.... That is darn funny.... Activated charcoal is a product that our ambulance is allowed to give to patients when they overdose on certain medications.

And the giving back change is great... Might be our new stimulus package at work?? Never know...

prov1900, looking for a "Chessie" pup, female, do you have anyone in your area that can supply such. Minnesota does not seem to have many available. Internet is well the internet.

Thanks for any reply. Darrell.

Ouch! Hope everything is all right!

A couple weeks ago my Lab polished off close to a full bag of Halls coughdrops, wrappers and all. Gave him some water/hydrogen peroxide and he threw everything up just fine luckily.

My good friend is a small animal surgeon at the U of M. He's told me of some pretty nasty/funny things he's pulled out of dogs (condoms, etc). I think the one that took the cake was when he had to remove a used colostomy bag that a dog had decided to eat!

A friend of mine got back to the states after working in Antarctica for a year. He had a wad of cash so he had a guy build him 5 custom rods with Loomis blanks. Sweet rods. Anyway, after an evening of walleye fishing he stops by the local tavern for a burger. When he gets back to his rig he notices his new pup had chewed all the new rods to pieces. That dog found a new home a few months later. That bugger would chew everything in sight.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.

      I got the Polluted From my own observation.  The North Branch of the Sunrise River, At least the part that Runs though The town of  North Branch, Isn't the healthiest.  I Walked by the river in a small park. The River was full of peoples Trash.  Like Washer Machines  and trash bags. People Trash Either ran into the river, or People just dump their trash their.

      All right People, Thanks for the info, next time I have a question about the St. Croix, I'll Post it on the thread. Peltier Sounds good, But your right the rivers are my best bet. Thanks for the link I'll make sure to use it.

      I don’t know who told you the sunrise river is polluted. Aside from a little bit of run off and algae blooms, the river is quite clean. The lower river is a popular summer float tubing spot. Come duck season, it will seem like the whole east metro is packed into Carlos Avery.
