A story and a tip you'll never know you need until the day you need it....
Two dogs when this happened. A black lab and a lab/Rhodesian mix.
We put a meal in a crockpot and both left for work. Our dogs never really got into anything, so no thoughts were given to the horror that would happen later.
I got home first to the greeting of...no dogs. Weird.
Then I found the crockpot on the kitchen floor. Some of it anyway.
There was no food to be seen. It had all been licked clean. But....there was this other matter at hand. I found the outside edge of the glass top of the lid.
No food. No glass. Those damned dogs ate the glass! All of the glass!
Panic mode. Called a vet. The solution given was to soak cotton balls in half and half and feed each dog about a dozen. I was skeptical.
I spent that whole night worried my dogs would be internally shredded and dead by morning. The cotton balls, however, really did the trick.
The dogs were alive in the morning. That day they both passed a large white turd. As it fell out of their asses, it made the distinct sound of broken glass tinkling down in a pile. I'll never forget the sound or picking that mess up in the scooper.
Neither of them ever had any issue with the glass and for that I was very thankful.
Oddly, I had to do this cotton ball routine again for my black lab after he consumed a bunch of cooked chicken bones. Same result. White poop filled with bones.
Both of these mighty hunters have gone to doggy haven, what a team the Black and Gold.
this is a great post and I want to say how sorry I am for those who have lost their friends and congrats to those who have new friends
