Re: Odd things pets eat

My yorkie once enjoyed a backyard full of bunny turds. Was told by the vet that the "stuff" is sweet. I didn't ask how HE knew that.

Don't wanna know. Nope.

Re: Odd things pets eat

Without thinking about it too much I suspect it's the carrots and greens they eat!

Could be Anns!

He never bothered with the chicken doodoo I used as fertilizer in the garden. But my dd's poodle mix loved to rub herself in it.

Re: Odd things pets eat

My dog likes to eat chips. It's really weird. She will eat almost any type, but the veggie chips are her favorite.

Re: Odd things pets eat

Hopefully, you mean actual vegetables? Not the over fried, processed junk?

Carrots in small amounts and sweet potatoes are very pet friendly - at least for dogs.

I would never, ever offer any type of human snack/treat to a pet.

No chocolate, garlic, onion, salt, msg, dye, xylitol-can KILL them--sweetener, for most of this is SYNTHETIC. Pets, much like humans, cannot digest synthetic chemicals.

Even most packaged treats meant for pets need to be given sparingly and be sure those ingredients are FOOD based.

Caution should be used with highly advertised pet foods, as well. Many of the ingredients are questionable but allowed. Cheap pet foods can be harmful to some breeds. Even the stuff my vet tried to push off on me as medical - I came to find out he got some extra cash for every bag prescribed. And it is full of chemicals, that won't do anything for a living animal. It is a cheap way to process food.

Much like our own - but we can choose not to buy/eat.

Re: Odd things pets eat

The other night, Ghost curled up in/on my hair. While I was drifting off to sleep he started making odd sounds - then I realized it sounded as if he was eating something (cue a groggy snafu = , what's he's eating). Then I felt a tug on my hair - he was eating/chewing on my hair.

Re: Odd things pets eat

What is it in hair that he might need in his diet, maybe?

Or, he was asleep dreaming of something yummy?

Or, he just loves you to pieces!!!

Re: Odd things pets eat

I feel your pain, snafu.

I was frantically trying to decide on a pair of "kitten" heels in hallway where large mirror is in closet.
I was being rushed.

Left the pink in the hall and went with another pair to the wedding shower.

Came home and found the shoe missing the entire pointed toe. Brand new. Never worn.

White dog had pink stuff in his beard.
