My Dog Ate My Clicker


Recommended Posts

I came home today to find the empty packaging for the dog-training clicker on the floor and no clicker. Will have to search the house and yard, and monitor Milo's input and output. Sigh.

 

Do I cross post this in Food and Dietary, or Health and Medical? :)

I work in a library and we've had many dog training books come back chewed, but eating a clicker is a new one. I guess it must have smelled at least a little like training treats! I'll have to keep that in mind if I should leave ours out....

 

I hope all passes without an issue. (Did you check his teeth? Monty always has a bit of debris stuck in his teeth when he eats inappropriate stuff.)

There is a little irony in this dilemma. Never-the-less I share your concerns, hope he passes the clicker without any problems. Be sure to keep us up-dated.

Hope Milo is OK and passes the clicker without incident. Our dogs took a dislike to Cesar Milan.

No sign of the clicker. Milo is eating and pooping normally, so maybe it's somewhere in the yard.

 

Milo is :bow at the waffle iron

sweep up carefully- from what i have noticed the plastic parts are what dogs seem to like. emily ate the straps of her muzzle- i freaked, found the buckle behind the crate. feed her soft white bread soaked in lots of the oil to help it pass. (did that for the same dog who ate 1/2 of an ace bandage- it worked).the bread will go around the small metal tongue of the clipper if it's inside your pup and the oil will lubricate the intestines and colon. i guess she wanted to mark a behavior and repeat it?

After several months I'm still waiting to see if the tyre /wheel from a Lego truck is ever going to make its way through Chancey. I've never found it yet.

Stuff can stay in dogs' stomachs for a surprisingly long time (ask me how I know this :P). You may see it yet.

 

I have to say, every time I see the title of this thread I crack up. Obviously I hope Milo has no issues, but something about it being a clicker just amuses me. ;)

Yes, we have experience with that, too. Mika once chewed the ears off a toy rabbit, and some of the ears passed through, but then eight days later he threw the rest up. And then tried to eat them again. :puke

 

Hope the clicker makes an appearance!!

Does that mean that you have been carefully examining all of his poops for several months? :huh:lol. You need to get yourself a hobby :rofl

 

Miss Sadi ate a Chinese water chestnut that I dropped, she obviously swallowed it whole and was unable , or unwilling to digest it because it made a re-entry four days later.....she barfed it up at about three in the morning, I was too tired to go and clear it up straight away (it was in our unused spare bedroom) and when I eventually got round to clearing it up I thought that it was a jaundiced eyeball :lol. I had quite forgotten what she had eaten four days earlier

 

Hopefully the clicker has "passed" unnoticed (without so much as a click ;) )
