    DefaultTodd ate a stinkbug.

    I was taking Todd down the steps to go outside to potty and he grabbed up a stinkbug on the step and down the hatch it went while he was running to the door. I know it was a stinkbug because I could smell it, but checked his mouth and it was gone. Ugh..I HATE those things. Has anyone else's dog ever eaten a stink bug? Any ill effects? This happened about 45 minutes ago and he is acting like his normal playful goofy self. He's peed, pooped and is running around like a devil dog. He is 13 weeks old and weighs around 24 lbs. Thanks, Debbie

    I don't think there will be any ill effects. A quick check on teh internets indicates they are not poisonous.

    So far no ill effects. Except for the pungent smell of cilantro in his mouth before I rinsed it out. I commend anyone out there who names their puppies Hoover or Dyson.

    Oh yuck! Here's hoping it tasted as bad as it smelled and he won't do it again! But as Sharon mentioned, nothing jumps out on a quick google search.

    He was fine, in fact, he encountered another one this eve and was afraid to touch it! He barked at it! Lesson learned! LOL!

    The year they first appeared here (2007 maybe), Caleb spent all summer playing with then eating stinkbugs with no problems. One must have "let go" in his mouth because he hasn't done it since that summer.
