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.

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.

      Gotta be careful to keep the holier than thou attitude under control whatever you decide to do. After all not much difference between bass, northern (looking at you harpooners), walleye, even gills.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I have eaten quite a few small mouth bass from Vermilion and a few large mouth bass from other lakes. The smaller small mouth are not bad table fare! The larger fish taste like mud to me! All large mouth taste like mud to me!!😛 If you were to suggest to these fishermen that eating the smaller fish will make a much tastier meal, not to mention a much safer meal because of the contaminant level in larger fish, that may make a difference in what they decide to keep.????  But as you said, they can legally keep them of all sizes. The DNR approach of a size limit would be best! Cliff  
    • Harry Goodliffe
      a sign that ASKS people to selective harvest, releasing the bigger fish to keep those better fish genes in the population if you keep fish eat smaller fish...the old bill dance quote "limit your kill not kill your limit.... catch what you can use and release the rest to fight another day"
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Nice walleye Reid! How big? Cliff
    • Wanderer
      I respect your conservation minded approach but trying to TELL people not to keep those fish will just get you more of the same response you already got.  I also agree <15 inch bass are better keepers.  I keep a few myself each year and rarely keep anything over 16, preferring 12’s for the table. I’ve been a bass tournament angler in the past and have also promoted staunch C&R, much like the modern muskie culture, but have grown wiser with age.  I still target bass quite a bit just because they’re fun! On a 300 acre lake I agree a small group of anglers can and will have an impact with constant return visits to harvest large fish but the only two things you can do about it is, 1) As mentioned, lobby the DNR for protected slots, and 2) When people are happy to show you their catch, congratulate them and mention you like bass too but find the smaller sized fish much better table fare.  And maybe that you also fell releasing the mature fish keeps reproduction up to sustain a quality fishery.  And be nice about it.  Once you turn people off they’ll stop hearing you. That’s about all I have for ya.  Good luck.

      Bite was OK for us this weekend. Marked tons of fish but they only seemed to bite in small feeding windows due to abundance of mayfly larva down there. When they decided bite, they were inhaling our leeches though.  Rocks next to mud was best for us. Highlight of the weekend was walleye pictured below.

      I like the idea!!!👍
