    DefaultACK!!! Are preying mantises bad for dogs???

    I just noticed Jersey had something in his mouth a minute ago so I went out to investigate (thinking it was a stick), well as I got closer I realized he was nosing a preying mantis around the patio!! I don't think he killed it, but there must have been a little bit of it in his mouth b/c he was trying to spit it out...are they poisonous or anything?

    Thanks!

    oh my goodness lol....that is too funny. One day my fish decided to jump out of the bowl to get a better look of the dog, and the floor. They got real close alright, Kaycie swallowed him down before i could get to the fish to save him. :'( lol

    Okay, so I just called my vet and was told that preying manti are not poisonous to dogs! Phew!! I freaked b/c I offered Jersey a cookie and he spit it out along with a bunch of saliva. Jersey has NEVER been known to refuse a cookie so I bugged...but I think he must have just had a leg or something still in his mouth and it was freaking him out!! LOL, we're both a bunch of wussies around here!

    So for future reference...NOT poisonous.

    On the list titled "things a Labrador will eat" I don't think a praying mantis rates real high on things to be worried about.

    Uh, I was just worried b/c I know jack about the preying mantis and Jersey was salivating and refusing a cookie. You wouldn't necessarily think grapes (or any other of the list of dangerous fruits for dogs) would be a thing to worry about either, but that wouldn't be right. I posted to get quick advice and then I updated in case someone else ever ran into the same issue.

    Grapes are poisinous? I never new that, I've never given McKenzie any before thank god. Does anyone know if theres a list of things not commonly known that are not lab/dog friendly? I too worry about every little thing, we normailly dont give her any people food but you never know when she'll swipe something.
