What has your animal swallowed?

I took this photo on holiday. Apparently these huge heavy stones were found in a horse's stomach. Has your animal ever swallowed something it shouldnt?

KittyB's Avatar Yes, the new dog - I haven't introduced her on here yet, must do that - Teasel, ate five cupcakes in their silicone cases. They took a fortnight to reappear. Made for some colourful little 'parcels' though!

She also eats hen food with great relish - especially the dried corn. In fact, she eats just about anything she can!

Westerwitch's Avatar Deer gralloch Rolling Eyes Sassy this is. Grass and moss. She steals chocolates off the Xmas tree so we can only put chocolates high up. She also eats the stones from our driveway and then poos them out a few days later. I am amazed that she hasn't had to be operated on to remove the stones.

Arnie is always trying to raid the bird table. He also sits under the table when we eat because HS who very sternly says never feed dogs at the table is always slipping him little treats . . .and then he complains that Arnie is always begging . . . Rolling Eyes

Toady's Avatar Minnie managed to bite off a piece of a rubber toy which sat in her gut for 6 months before it caused any problems. After a very expensive op she is fine. Thank God for Petplan.

Ivy's Avatar Ivy eats any elastic band she can get hold of as well as candles and also , like Teasle, loves silicon cupcake moulds (even empty ones). I really wonder if it is softeners or anything they put in them that makes them so irresistible.
Ivy would eat anything she can put her paw on , including horse poo ( but only some not all "brands" )Smile

Camilla's Avatar Goodness Faith, those stones are so large too, hope Horse was alright after surgery.

I had a dog named Suzie who was a cross between a Gordon Setter/Collie, she always loved to go for her walks with a stone in her mouth going, and always loved to bring a stone home coming back too. Luckily she never swallowed them.

Used to have a dog who was a Springer Spaniel named Cashew (from the nut family), she loved pinching the coal out of the coal skuttle near fire, loved to eat the cockle shells from the beach too.!
