Default Help!!!

Joey has just went in the bin and stole the carton that the raw beef was in. He scoffed the paper which absorbed the meat blood. I couldn't get it off him even trying to swap a treat so I tried to get it off him and he gave me the "snarl" so I had to leave him.
He swallowed the paper whole with beef blood dripping everywhere, I was so angry with him I had to walk away.

Do you think he will be ok and will the paper digest properly?? X

Poor you. He should be fine, mine have eaten (stolen) alot worse. The smell of meat must have been too much for him, I know bassets should 'leave' when asked (if they have been trained) but it would have been of very high value to exchange! We gave up with bins, to much for them to ignore & have for many years used plastic bags that are hung up out of reach. The paper will dissolve (if that's the right word), he might have a slight upset stomach. You did the right thing to walk away & not challenge him, dogs's will snarl & think I would if I came across such a delicacy & someone tried to take it from me! Good luck.

Mine have eaten them. It's usually okay. Depends on how much they chewed. If swallowed whole, they might need some help to pull it out the other end. Wait until they get ahold of some dental floss. That will be like fishing for treasure.

Fred gets into the tissues and paper towels from time to time, and every time he has passed them as a paper candy cane turd. lol

My daughter's Springer Spaniel once ate a whole J-cloth that she had just used to wipe some spilt gravy - she put it in the bin and he fished it out and when she went to grab it from him, he ran out of the kitchen into the hall and he woofed it down but re-appeared the next day in the garden!
