No you silly guy--it's a save the GARLIC--I'm sure that depending on size & digestion ability,many of these listed things are real unhealthy for the individual dog--both my labs are like garbage pails--the Amish put all thier garbage in a pit to be used as compost--well,there's my male lab----I was glad to see that horse apples aren't on the list--both my dogs would definatly be DEAD--we like to refer to them as poop-pops in the winter :lol: Merry Christmas Richard :) Well today I head for Ithaca to pick up my 1st pair of eye glasses,it should be interesting to be able to see ;)

According to my Vet (who just bought a new Corvette), the only thing my dog can eat is his prescription dog food. :roll:

Slide 11 says that you shouldn't feed your dog fat trimmings and bones??? How did all the wild dogs survive before they crawled next to the campfire and became pets all those millenia ago? Chicken skin and eggs are bad too? They heck with the dog, I am gonna kick the bucket soon!

I had to laugh at the peach pit causing blockages. Our lab would eat baby wipes and socks occasionally and even those things wouldn't cause a blockage! :shock: I guess it depends on the size of the dog.

I did notice the Iams sponsorship of the slide presentation when I was browsing it. :roll:

I think Eddy is trying to figure out why he didn't get a vat of butter to dip his lobstah into!! :)

My vet, a 70 year old country cow&horse vet, says a dogs stomach can digest ANY bone. Including bird/chicken bones. But he doesn't recommend feeding bird bones to a dog cuz of their chances of splintering and getting stuck in the throat before they get to the stomach. Strangely enough, the bird's backbones are solid, so its ok to give the neckbone, backbone, pelvic bones to a dog.

We've fed the dogs the knuckles from chicken bones, the dog I had when I was kid we had trained enough that was all he would eat if you gave him the whole bone.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention. Two years ago, thyroid medicine (new Harley, I think it's a Fat Bob)
Lipids for the skin (F150 Harley Addition).
I got this vet after I recieving a $250 bill from the last one for "doing everything they could" to save a hamster that was more than likely deceased when delivered to them. :shock: At least this beast is healthy. :roll:

The weight of the dog and breed may have a lot to do with it. Mine is about 80# and has eaten nearly every thing that he shouldn't, grapes, chocolate, bird bones and a bag of Fisherman's Friend. Never had any problems. Well except the vet's transportation issues. :)

When I was a kid, my dad had a steel wool pad out and couldn't find it suddenly. About a day later our Airedale was having a difficult time "doing his business". Turns out he ate the steel wool pad and passed it, I guess it cleaned him out.

Was your dog really fat? We had this Dalmatian that got huge. Turns out it was thyroid problem, he went back to normal weight after they started him on the script.

We had a Lab - Dalmatian cross who liked to collect glass bottles and we would catch her crunching them up. Don't know how much she swallowed. She was a beautiful dog, but she was crazy (or maybe full of glass shards?) She would come to be fussed, then lie down on your feet and growl as if she would take your arm off if you tried to pat her again. Snarled a couple times at our toddler and sadly she had to go to her reward.

One of our current dogs likes to eat books and curtains -- but only GOOD literature and lace. So whenever we leave her in the house she has to be in her crate. The other dog is good, only eats cat poop and deer poop and goose poop to supplement the Purina.

Marley has shredded most of the fabric in the house, a had to get a crate for him, can't leave him here alone and free. I figure he should outgrow it, he's only about 10 months old. He is already showing promise, I can take him out to pee without a leash and he seems to know the difference between what he should and shouldn't do (not that that stops him...).

Not really fat, but he was chunky. He ran about 85# at the top. He is a chow and shepherd with a few other flavors. Once he started the meds, he went down to about 75# and looks great.
