Anyone Know Is A Dried Starfish Is Digestible?


Recommended Posts

I'm sure I'll laugh about this at some point. I just finished photographing some Bling, I often use a starfish as a prop. I came downstairs and couldn't figure out what was on the floor, black and brown crumbs. Then I saw the Bling on the floor accross the room and the paper I used as a background.

 

Jet ate the starfish! It was about as big as my outstretched hand.

 

So, do I make him vomit, or just watch him?

If you get the chance to sit it out or dance.......... I hope you dance! Missing our littlest girl.

I'm pretty sure this has happened before. And pretty sure it's safe. I'm gonna search archives...

If it's a 'local' starfish (from US/Canada waters) it's unlikely to have any toxins. It's more the rough skin that could cause Jet to be uncomfortable. I say watch him as likely he will be okay.

Darn, it won't let me open the link.

 

Since it was dried and who knows how big the pieces were that he swalloed I'm just keeping an eye on him. I think this is the oddest thing thus far that he has eaten.

I got it in Florida about 6 years ago.

 

 

 

Okay, now I can open it. Thanks, that is pretty much what I was thinking.

Strider ate one back in '05 - he's still alive and well. wink.gif

 

 

Good to know. I wasn't overly worried, this dog has eaten lots of things he shouldn't. rolleyes.gif His most favourite thing is vet wrap. I can't put a roll down when I'm using it, or the next time I'll see it is in the yard a few days later. eek.gif

My Sizzle has also eaten one, it was a santa starfish ornament. She was just fine! I panicked too! I am sure he'll be fine! Don't you wonder what in God's name posses them to eat the things they do!

 

Good luck!

Cody ate one off the Christmas tree (it was painted like Santa!) back in '96 and she lived till '05 (age 12)!! I called the poison control center & when they finished laughing, they said it should be fine!

 

Now you MUST buy one of Char's greyhound/starfish necklaces!!! (I have TWO!)
