I could be wrong here but that doesnt sound good to me. I would not have allowed her to eat the bird.
A dog's stomach is much more acidic than ours and can kill more bacteria than a human stomach. A dog's digestive process is also faster than the time required for bacteria to manifest.Originally Posted By: Camerafoddermy only concern would be about diseases. i dont know enough about birds and what they carry - so i wouldnt let my dogs eat one.
My concern would be Avian flu. This depends on where you live, what kind of bird, etc.Originally Posted By: CalipsoBut they do carry some diseases I suppose..
Yeah, but alot safer than a wild bird Good post BTW, these would be my concerns also..One of my Labs is a butt about wanting to catch birds, however I never allow him to eat them..Quote:I know, I know....grocery store food is not 100% safe either.
It was a good question.Originally Posted By: CalipsoI wasn't planning on making a habit of feeding birds to her. .
