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...

Don't they say that everything always "works out in the end"?

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.

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!

      We hunt 108 and are overrun by wolves. You can count the number of deer tracks up there. Same thing to the west of us. Once they deplete the deer enough they either starve or move on. Problem is if they have a neighboring pack the fight is on and they have nowhere to go. So we go through these endless cycles between having deer or having wolves. Biologists have determined a wolf can eat 25 deer a year!
