So, way back in 2007 (yes, MAY 2007!) I stupidly let Ruby eat an eaten-by-me corn cob.

Then I posted on a forum asking how stupid that really was and the unanimous reaction was to take her to the vet immediately - they do NOT digest! I even got a number of concerned PMs saying same. But, we decided to watch and wait. She did poop a FEW pieces out but otherwise was acting normal.

However, a couple of days ago, she started eating grass and then barfed up a brown colored roundish thing that boggled me. It was wierd enough that I left it out to dry for a few days and when we broke it apart, damned if it wasn't a freaking piece of corn cob from 2007!!!!!! We will continue to watch - might even try to clear her stomach with a dose of hydrogen peroxide (per a recommendation) but I would say now, that this is NOT something that should ever be fed to a dog since these things do not digest in the least! :wow

Over all of these years, she has semi-reliably barfed up the ends of chicken leg bones when I feed raw - a quick barf in the morning and that's it. I am very curious to see if that will now be a thing of the past?!?


THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE AFTER DRYING A BIT - when it first came up it was smooth and round with 2 flat sides but was covered in hairs - I almost thought she had eaten a creature initially...


FREAKING CORN COB PIECE!

They can be nasty for the doggies, our friends Bull Terrier got a bowel obstruction from eating a corn cob, operation followed.

That's something with that being in your dog that long....wow

Is that even possible? How can it stay there for four years without it causing major complications, blockage etc.? I don't get it. Looks and sounds like something out sci-fi lol!
