    Default What is wrong with my little man???

    So Friday night in the middle of the night Brodie got ahold of another sock and swallowed it, again! I was able to get him to throw it up this time instead of going to ER Vet. But I'm wondering if there is a reason he is doing this. He eats the oddest things, socks, papertowels, baby wipes. I mean I just don't understand. Is there something wrong? Am I not feeding him enough? He gets 1 1/2 cups in morning and evening of Avoderm Chicken and Brown Rice puppy food. Maybe there are not enough nutrients in it and he is still hungry? I just don't know. All I know is now I can't ever leave him alone or out of his kennel unless I can watch him the whole time for fear he will do this again and I won't know. Any suggestions???

    I just think if it's there...they WILL eat it! Scary and nerve wracking...I know! Glad you saw it happen and were able to get it back without the vet and $$$$$$!!!!!

    Sounds like he's just being a puppy lol.. If we leave any boxes around the house he will chew on it, he chews on wood, and loves eating greens "leaves". He has never eatin any socks though lol.. Or lab loves paper if instructions fall out of a box he will grab it before it hits the ground
    Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

    Sorry but I can be of no assistance here cos Daddy will eat anything and everything!! He has eaten bees ... ... cat poop ... dog poop .... the metal charm off his collar!!! ... twigs .... my flowers ... parts of his fluffy toys ... cotton wool .... socks .... toilet rolls .... leaves ... lipgloss .... bubble bath (that one was intersting!) ... small screws .... and I'm sure plenty more things that we don't know about yet!!!

    It is a continuous adventure every time he comes in from outside because we have to search every part of his mouth, and never know quite what we'll find!!

    I think so too,my bully will eat anything socks,bottle caps,dust, my other dogs hair, he ate recently my klipsch headphones not the wires but the ear pieces and connection to my phone....he even ate some of his cover we put in his cage...i only found this out when he vomited it up....so I think the same, if it's on the floor or where they can get it, it's GONE.....

    Jack our other dog loves socks too, he's nearly 6 months. As long as I keep the dirty ones in the hamper and the clean ones in the basket where he can't get to them before I put laundry away I'm ok. He got a hold of another one this morning. But I had them where he could get to them so it's my bad really not his.

    I always try to make sure that nothing's in reach of Stig's mouth too because he will try to eat anything. This includes the places where I know he'll try to climb on such as the side tables and the tv stand. It's gotten to the point where I need to block him from the living room if no one's there to watch him because I found him standing on the side table once and the top is made of glass. Little bugger. lol.

    As much as I tried when Vegas was younger, I would catch him with our UNDERWARE , he did not swallow them, but he would be happily chewing on our DIRTY underware in his crate...again , ....He did eat one of my gloves that I had no idea about and threw it up a couple of days later!!

    With it just being the two of us I used a laundry basket instead of a hamper, and he could reach in, Now the laundry basket sits on top of a chair in our bedroom.

    Well, @melanieian if you find out how to stop Brodie from eating everything he gets his paws on please let me know. I asked our vet when he thought Ruggles would stop eating everything and his answer was when he's dead!!! We have had to Rugglesproof the house and keep close track of everything when we have guests! Ruggles is 4.

    Lola is 1 1/2 now and I can't put any kind of pad or sheet, towel, comforter or other thing in her crate. She rips them open and eats the fiber fill, feathers or shreds the material. Stupid really.

    Now I have been experimenting with leaving her out of the crate. Two weeks now and she hasn't eaten or chewed anything. Although I fear I will come home and my sofa or bed will be gone! I think she hates the crate!
