I looked at the unsafe food list @ http://www.lacetoleather.com/fataltodogs.html and I can't find anything about corn on the cob. I'm going to make some tonight with dinner and Lexie is teething, I thought she might enjoy a gnawing on a piece. I just don't want to give it to her if it would hurt her.
Just watch her closely while she has the cob. My cousin's dog had a $1200 surgery to remove a cob that was causing an obstruction.
Don't do it!!
Maisy ate one once and was vomiting violently until she threw it up. We almost went to the emergency vets. This was on halloween night last year. Don't they just pick the best of times?* :
I didn't, I crossposted in lab chat and heard many negative stories; I'm not risking it.Originally Posted by Trickster
I wouldn't do it. My old roommates Rottie pulled one out of the trash and sure enough had to have surgury.
If she is teething take an old hand towel and tie it in a knot, get it wet and freeze it. The cold will numb her gums.
I think it's only dangerous if they swallow the cob. You are better off giving a marrow bone with the marrow removed....
