In 2010, according to Veterinary Pet Insurance Co., there were many remarkable items removed from dogs’ stomachs.  Among the 16 steel wool pads, jumper cables, an extention cord, and eyeglasses, was this list:

  • Jellyfish
  • Tube of denture adhesive
  • Tent door
  • Plastic nose from teddy bear
  • Baseball
  • Glass Christmas ornament
  • Hearing aid
  • Box of pencils
  • Watch
  • Light bulb
  • Barbecue brush
  • Frisbee
  • Pin cushion
  • TV remote control
  • Fire log
  • Pine cone
  • Rosary crucifix

Wow! On my list of my own dogs, we have had a pound of coffee beans, a plastic Easter egg (Yes, my dog really did lay an egg), an entire bottle of multivitamins, and a few stolen food items as well! You can try your best to keep things away, but it’s always good to have the number to poison control on hand- it’s on our fridge with the number to the closest emergency vet.
