    Default Acorns-It's That Time Of The Year

    Here in Central Maryland, the acorns are starting to fall to the ground. Acorns from Oak trees are non-condusive to a health bully or any dog for that matter. Please see http://www.dogchannel.com/dog-inform...-dont-mix.aspx .

    Well despite our due dilligence and watchful eye when Jewel and Bentley are outside, Bentley decided to eat an acorn. Needless to say, we woke up to a stench Monday morning only to find our Bentley wanting to escape his poop and puke ridden crate for some fresh air. I can't say that I blame him. He had had diarrhea and puked his previous evenings dinner. In the puke, it appeared that there was part of an acorn in the mess and a piece of Kleenex. After letting him outside, he made a dash to his spot and got into his stance and he let out some gas that rendered the neighbors lights coming on (it was 4:45 AM and maybe just coincidence) and then more diarrhea. Poor guy.

    I stayed home yesterday and glad that i did because he had two more episodes of diarrhea but mostly gas and luckily no more episodes of the pukes. I kept him on water only until last evening and gave him a bland diet (Hill's that we had leftover from a similar escapade with Jewel) but only half as much as what he usually receives. I am glad to say that he had a relatively normal stool this morning. Amen.

    So pet owners, please be aware of the acorns and your precious loved ones. @Vikinggirl did provide a list of poisons plants, shrubs, and trees in an earlier post...but I can't seem to find it that provides keen insight of the nastys that maybe lurking in and around your homes/property that can be harmful to your pets.

    Bentley has his follow-up with the vet for his hernia repair...I will mention this to her to see if wee need to be aware of anything.

    At this point...We were lucky.

    Great story! I am glad he is getting better. It's too bad they don't just realize they ate something bad and avoid doing it again.

    Aww Roger, poor guy, both of you. So sorry this happened to Bentley, these silly guys will eat just about anything, and they never learn their lesson. I've had many sock eating incidences with Dozer and the diarrhea and vomiting that go with it. I'm glad that he's okay and feeling better.

    roger if you want to find an old post or are looking for information on a topic, go up to the top of the page, on the right hand side, you will find a box that say advanced search, just type in poisonous plants, or any other subject you want to find and it will take you to all the posts on that subject.

    Great reminder. It is that time of year for us as well and wouldn't you know it the neighbors behind me have a huge oak tree that is already starting to drop acorns. At least they trimmed a lot of the tree this summer so it shouldn't be as bad as last year.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Thanks for sharing what happened. It's an important reminder on the dangers of plants/trees.

    These little guys eat everything!! Glad to hear Bentley's doing better.

    We have an Australian Shepherd that is 10 years old.. she eats these ALL the time and has never had issues. We just got our Bully Baby on 7/4/14 and since then I've done more and more research and have read that acorns are definitely toxic to pets... I wonder why Sheba has never had any issues?? Could she be immune?? Since I learned about this, I have gone out and raked up ALL the acorns.. even got the hubby to help by telling him he could use the acorns as bait for his upcoming hunting trip!! LOL

    Wow... What a mess for both of you. Happy to hear he is all better and it was nothing more than an upset system. Never knew about the acorns, thankfully we do not have any in our yard.
