I’m a vet and have surgically removed lots of strange things from stones to kids toys to golfballs (One labrador had 5 golfballs in his stomach) to underwear and other pleasant things like used tampons and condoms!

I had to get those trash cans with the flip thing that covers the top of it. I got the one that looks like a space mask, metal with a spring that snaps back, so the dogs won’t go in it. I did that after they fished my monthly pads out of the bathroom trash. 

They like to tear up my pillows and throw the stuff everywhere, they tore up the lining under the couch cushions. I came downstairs and they looked like mechanics, deep under the hood of a car. they eat the crotches out of pants and panties, they like to eat grass and sticks, boxes, carpet, floor tile, memory sticks, books, snatched my Nicorette gum off the counter and ate it. Lipstick, soap, lotion, wood, toothpaste, you name it. But now that they are older, they have lost interest in chewing for the heck of it. 

My last Husky, she loved to go to the curtains and eat the stray strings off the bottom. She’d throw up 5 seconds after, but took forever clue herself in not to eat them. If I cut them off, they just unraveled more. If I tucked them up, she’d just pull them back down to get to the strings. After a while, she did stop, though.

My problem is that they can get up on counters, since they are so big. I always do a Homer’s “Dohpe!” when I leave something out, because it seems they are like sharks, just circling and waiting for me to leave something on the counter and walk off.

My old dog used to eat aluminum soda cans. Surprisingly it never bothered him and he just pooped them out, no trips to the vet needed ๐Ÿ™‚ He really was a garbage disposal though.  And my other dog has a thing for toilet paper.  I came home one day and it looked like it had snowed in the living room, I mean everything was covered with shredded toilet paper.  And my cat has a thing for teriyaki sauce and broccoli.

this is a fun thread… if anyone is familiar with pet rabbits, you have to watch out for ANYTHING around them as chewing is their way to explore the world.  So to date my rabbit has nibbled away at several power cords (laptop, audio in, playstation controller), a plastic cover that was supposed to keep animals from chewing wires (apparently it wasn’t hard enough for bunny teeth!), the rubber buttons on the tv remote control, the analog controls on a playstation controller, the rubber insulation at the bottom of our front door, the handle of a suitcase, portions of our wood coffeetables, my leather kindle cover, and a decently large square of bubble wrap.  We do a pretty good job of “rabbit proofing”, but this is all stuff that was accidentally left exposed.  Also he can jump onto our couches, which is how he got the controllers and bubble wrap!!

One of my chihuahuas mcgivers my underwear out of my hamper and eats them. Iv given up on owning expensive panties ๐Ÿ™

The reason I got my dachshund is because he ate a bottle of advil and a pen and was pooping black (digested blood) for a week. Owner was out of town and couldn’t afford to do anything for him. I teamed up with my large animal vet and he worked out a deal with a clinic and they fixed him up for a reasonable price (one vet to another) He fell in love with me when I nursed him back to health so he stayed with me. Still goes to see other owner (coworker, sees her almost every day at work) and loves her, but is always ready to go home when I leave and is not confused about situation at all.

My cat always wants to eat chocolate covered almonds. It is ridiculous because he is a carnivore who is acting like a squirrel.

NOT MY DOG but I have a friend who had a large dog that ate 36 bags of peanut M&Ms. It was one of those sell-all-this-candy school fundraiser things. And the dog DIDN’T DIE.

My dog will literally eat anything… we have to be so careful! By far the craziest thing she has eaten was a foam nerf bullet… I didn’t even realize she had eaten it until she pooped it out two days later! ๐Ÿ™ She had been very lethargic for those 2 days but we were in the process of moving so I thought it was stress. I am a very bad dog mom! For reference, the bullet was about 6 INCHES LONG. She only weighed about 9-10 lbs at the time–very small! It’s a wonder she passed it! 

 

OH! One more! My MIL’s panties– I was mortified!!!!!!! We were visiting & she had left her bedroom door open, so our dog wandered in there. AWFUL!

My mom’s dog once swallowed a latex glove whole. Luckily it came out intact. He also enjoys eating tissues out of the trash and eating towels thread by thread. My mom says she can always tell the difference between his poo and her other dog’s poo in the yard because his always has something random in it.

My pekingese ate a box of crayolas.  He pooped a rainbow for several days.

Our dog has eaten two used condoms, and one used-but-not-totally-used-to-completion (if you know what I mean) condom.  He has issues.

My dog ate a whole bag of bird seed. His poop was bird seed for about 2-3 days afterwards. In the house, outside… everywhere!
