Possible poisoning attempt
I let my babies out to potty this morning and I noticed my lab go to a spot near the fence and begin eating something. I called her to the porch and went out to where she was at and there was a small pile of beggin strips that had been cut into approx. 1 in pieces. I picked them up and smelled them and they did have a different odor to them but it was faint.
I came inside and got my peroxide and gave her a tbls of it and walked around with her for about 5 min in the yard, she never did throw up so I went back in the house and got another spoonful for her. When I got back to the porch she had already thrown up and the pieces of beggin strip where in it. I also gave her a slice of bread soaked in milk, and a little later they all had their morning meal.
I guess that I am going to have to check the yard before letting them out, the people that live near me are not happy because my dogs bark at them when they come near my property. My property is near others on one end and isolated and surrounded by woods on 3 sides.
It is just scary to think that someone could harm my babies and them in their own yard. The reality is that there is no way I can monitor 3 1/2 acres daily and check for poisoned food.
