Is It Normal for My Dog to Eat Indigestible Items?

A common problem in dogs is the ingestion of unnatural objects such as candy wrappers, toilet paper, or socks.

Not only is this behavior a nuisance around the house, but the swallowing of non-food particles poses a serious threat to the health of the dog. The problem requires attention and treatment.

NB: Eating indigestibles can get pretty extreme.  Some of my patients are even referred to me after multiple surgeries to relieve obstructions from foreign objects that they have eaten. I rarely see this symptom (or its’ cousin, coprophagia=eating of stool) in freshly fed, well-exercised pets. Whenever this symptom occurs however, it is often an excellent clue to the needed homeopathic remedy.  I can’t recall any of my actively treated patients who have needed exploratory surgery due to eating a foreign body.–Dr. Jeff

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
