    Default HE ATE WHAT?????

    This morning I took Boomer to the park to play and for me to walk something we do everyday. Since I have had a sick kid we have missed the last 3 mornings. Anyway there is an area for dogs to play while parents exercise. This morning I kept noticing Boomer going to the corner of the fence. After 3 times of calling him away from that area I went and saw that he was chewing on a dead squirrel. I called the vet and he said he should be ok. But I am flipping out....

    I'd be wondering what the squirrel died from. Our Mack packed around a dead bird in his mouth once, playing catch me if you can. It didn't hurt him but it sure is a gross thing to do!

    Oh so gross! At the beginning of summer there were dead birds all over our yard, which I didn't realize, and I caught Ruthie eating one. It's amazing what dogs can eat and they never get sick from it. Steer clear from Kisses for a few days lol.

    I caught Dudley sniffing a dead bird on the sidewalk when we were taking our walk a couple of weeks ago...poor thing probably had whiplash considering how quickly I pulled him away! Yeah...no kisses from our baby for a while!

    My dogs LOVE to eat anything like that! The worse it smells the better they LIKE it-and I spend a fortune on GOOD dog food! If I see them all charge the same area-I know they are up to no good! Sometimes the barn cats will leave mole or mouse parts-or if their is a stinky dead toad-They will act like it's gourmet! That makes ME sick! I tell them that they have NO taste buds, I could feed them roadkill! ha!ha! (They probably would LOVE that!) Luckily, I usually can get it out of the mouth before it is swallowed, but it is concerning. Anytime you see them TOO interested in an area-check it out 'cause they are up to no good!! As long as they don't actually swallow much-they are usually okay. Doggies stomach acids are pretty powerful, I'd say. Poor strays probably live on any roadkill they can find!p.s. Make sure your dogs are always UP to DATE on their shots!

    Watch him for signs of lethargy and fever I don't know if it's something dogs can get but its called Rabbit Fever it has a technical name but I can't remember what it is. If I were you if I saw ANYTHING out of the normal I would be going to the vet. From what I understand they are seeing a lot of instances of rabies this year.
    Its called Tulermia.

    It's worse when they find something dead like that and decide to ROLL in it! My Jack Russell is the QUEEN of finding dead things to roll in and smear all over her body. So GROSS!!!

    OMG. I would be freaking out too, these silly babies will eat just about anything. I haven't experienced this yet, but came close, Dozer was sniffing a dead bird, but I pulled him away before he could eat it. If Boomer is up to date on all of his shots, especially rabies, and leptovirus, which is another disease they can contract from wildlife, then he's going to be fine. Dogs have a different stomach acid than we do, which kills most germs and viruses, that would normally make us sick. If your vet says he's going to be fine, then I wouldn't worry too much. My Dad lives up North and his Black Lab would run out in the country around my dads house, and sometimes he would find road kill or a carcass from a dead animal , and he would devour it, bones and all, he was always fine.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
