    Latex lunch

    My dog just ate this:



    After beating him silly and having make - up licks he seemed OK... but I wonder if the latex may plug him up, or speed him up, or worse...
    I know it says non-toxic and all, but 16oz is a lot... and a lot more than last time this happened.
    Anybody have any experiences with this?
    And why does he seek this stuff out? It was not just laying around, he saught it out. He passed up a lot of low hanging fruit in the garage to get to it, and it was unopened.

    Well if it really plugs him up feed him bean burritos and coffee

    I don't know why he eats it but my cats eat plastic, tape, etc. Apparently animals love the taste of synthetics.
    You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.

    If it's a problem to eat it, it usually says on the bottle what to do in case of consumption... but a call to the vet wouldn't hurt. Good Luck!

    It does say "eco-friendly". Anti-freeze is eco-friendly too. I would seriously think about calling the vet just to make sure. Or, call the animal poison control line at (888) 426-4435. They will charge you a $65 contribution. Probably too late, but you should have given a 1/2 teaspoon of Hydrogen Peroxide to induce vomiting.

    I told Stan that bacon-flavored sealant was a dumb idea.

    I hope the doggy has no problems.

    Here...It's the antifreeze you could worry about....

    but...

    Propylene glycol is way less toxic than ethylene glycol in typical car antifreeze.

    MSDS for Stans? Brilliant!

    I think he'll be fine.

    Must be a lab?

    Our pup ate an entire glass bottle of vitamins a year or so ago-- INCLUDING THE GLASS-- we called the emergency vet and they kept asking how much zinc was in the vitamins. We kept asking about the glass, and they just said "he's a lab, he'll be fine."

    They were right. Though the vitamins had my 6 year old, arthritic, aching dog acting like a 3 month old puppy for about 3 days...

    Should be alright; Stan's cures when exposed to air not gastric juices.
    My sister's lab drank a bottle of lighter fluid a few years back. It made it just fine.

    It also says non-toxic which you won't find on anti-freeze (though anti-freeze is delicious, yum).

    Although it also coagulates in low pH evironments, like gastric juices. Also why you should re-fill your tires with ambient air after inflating with CO2 ASAP.
    (CO2+H2O=H2CO3 (Carbonic Acid)).

    He's probably OK. Probably just crap superballs for a while. Or one of those piles of poo you can get at the gag gift store. Always wondered how those were made. Now we know.

    Dog is fine. Polyethylene glycol is a food additive with mild toxicity at higher doses. Wont plug the kidneys like ethylene glycol/anti-freeze. He definately had some GI distress last night on our nightly ride / run to the creek.

    Gonna lock the Stans up in a cabinet, I guess

    Glad your dog is OK, amazing what they can eat and get away with. My dog probably has a few dollars in change down there cause he sounds like a wind chime when he runs.

    and it gets better... The old dog bed he spilled / ate his quart o Stans on yesterday got thrown in the trash. I come home today to find the trash can tipped over, and the bed licked and chewed (among other items).

    Stans is more powerful than bacon.
