Unhappy Tripp ate something gross! Dont read if eating!

ICK! Where do i start! When i get home after work i always take my babies on a walk. They love to sniff sniff sniff like all dogs. Well, Tripp seemed to be really into 'something' so when i got to him(we were right there!) i noticed he had some dead animals remains in his mouth, (ok it was the guts!), . My hubby had to literally pry his mouth open to get them out.

I had picked him up to bring him back to the house & didnt realize he had gut chunks/juice on his mouth & chest(i am gagging as i am writing this). THe smell made me . My DH & I looked at each other in disbelief that our sweet baby could/would do such a thing! So i am trying to bathe him without gagging(no luck). Afterwards he was wanting to kiss us all night(NO WAY!).


My question is.....do i have to worry about him/us catching anything or should i have him tested for anything other than SANITY!! He wont eat kibble etc.. but give him a dead animal................

Yuck........you know as much as we treat these little guys like human babies, they will always do something to remind us they're really dogs!!!! I know, I go nuts when I find that Lily is even close to something dead. I would probably call my vet just to put my mind at ease.

Ahhh the call of the wild!!! Gross. I would have washed that boys mouth out with soap. I think the big concern for both animals and humans in that ahhh "situation" is Giardia. I think it is really hard for you to get. But I would check with your Vet about whether to test/treat your little wolf boy Tripp. Sorry Shannon it's hard not laugh/cry with you picturing that cute little fluff ball with blood dripping from his mouth!!!

Mommy, Look what I found???? Yikes!! The vet will probably just tell you what to watch for. I dont think I would be giving kisses until those teeth are brushed!!

I don't know if a havanese gut is as tough as a lab...but my lab eats everything....birds(beak, feathers,feet), frogs and a fish that had sat out in the August heat for three days. Nothing seems to bother her.

One day she brought in a frog and laid it on the floor....it had no legs.

Peace, Love & Havanese

Hi Shannon,

That reminds me of the time when our neighbor, would shoot squirrels in his orchard and not berry the dead squirrels. My cat would bring them home and eat them, then throw them up. This one time he was throwing up squirrel guts all over the house. I could not clean it up so my husband did it and he was pucking while he was doing it! It was so disgusting, I know how you feel. Maybe you could brush Tripp's teeth with something?

Jasper our cat,catches things and brings them up to the house steps to share!I caught Quincy eating a baby bunny.It was gross--but I scolded him and he dropped the carcus(Jasper ate the head)and then picked it up with a stick and threw it.It was disgusting but he was just being a dog.......hey---it's fresher then poop---and probably tastier!

I had to laugh Paige! Jax loves the frogs that have been run over by the car & are months old! We have a resident frog that hangs around the dogs but they dont bother it. I think its because it freezes whenever they sniff it. If it were to jump away-he would be history!

THey do love all that dead(or almost dead) stuff, dont they!!
