MrsPiggles:  it was doing some Kung Fu Panda moves on my puppy <— that had me dying hahaha.

We have had some of thsoe too lately, but I didn’t know they were a possible threat. I will try to coherece my dog in a different direction to save the bugs if I can, but sometimes I’m a day late and a dollar short and my dog is still alive. 😉

A praying mantis is not toxic to dogs. The most you have to worry about is some gastrointestinal irritation from the spikes on their limbs. Otherwise, it shouldn’t cause a problem. I would just add some fiber into his diet. Pureed canned pumpkin works well. It will help increase fecal bulk and push the mantis through his digestive tract faster.

The mantis is in more danger from your dog! I like praying mantises because they eat other insects.

I love praying mantises! My doggies harass them in the yard but i try to remove the bugs and put them somewhere in the bushes.  As far as my experience goes,  they don’t bite.

Do not do a google image search on “praying mantis hummingbird”.

DON’T!

You will regret it.
