    My dog is just as grose so I spare you all the details. But she shredded a poopy nappy 🤢 after dp didn't close the boy's bedroom door when we went out.

    When DD1 was little we'd let her run around naked in the backyard most afternoons to have nappy-free time. If she decided to poop, I'd have to rush to clean it up before the dogs got to it because they'd eat it straight away 🤢

It appeared to work and she has had xrays since and no pins visible.

    Flies from neighboring yards (assuming that's how she got it) contaminated with parvo. That was expensive.

    Knickers, dog toys, easter chocolate while we were out. She once had to have an enema and they found traces of cement, rocks and asbestos (presumably from our back fence).
    My goodness, that's one adventurous fur baby you've got on your hands!

    The worst/most expensive things she's eaten was a huge amount of dark chocolate. I had purchased it and left in my handbag on the bed only to find her having eaten it all, about 100g! That was a trip to the vet to induce vomiting and lots of medication. She was pretty sick but we caught it early.

    2 weeks later she had a feast of macadamia nuts from our tree(she cracks them open with her teeth) normally she would only eat a couple but we found her the next day partially paralysed, very high temp and lethargic. This was a very expensive admission to the vet for 2 days. Macadamia toxicity is extremely dangerous.
    We've also had a trip to the vet due to macadamia nuts. We got it in time luckily. My former boss was a vet and opened up at 10pm just for us.

    Glad your dog is ok after her nut indulgence.

    Default Things your pets have eaten and shouldn't have

    My dog ate tampons, cost about $2k all up for that adventure! You're very lucky!

    Default Things your pets have eaten and shouldn't have

    When my daughter was about 2, we were eating and our BBQ dinner out the back, which included chicken on wooden skewers. She was waving her skewer around and threw it, and before I could run and grab it, our jack Russell had gulped it down, chicken and skewer. I googled it and the advice was to get her to the vet because it could puncture her bowel. Of course it was a Sunday night, so we paid $200 for the vet to say "it won't show up on an X-ray, but by now if it was going to cause any issues, it already would have".

    One of our cats (the one that recently 'smelled funny') ate a 70cm ribbon. All in one. Like it was spaghetti. The vet gave her something to try and bring it up but off course it was too long and they feared it would get tangled in her intestines so she had to be rushed off to the animal hospital for emergency surgery .

    My childhood dog ate a 48 pack of crayons. He did rainbow poos for days.
