Dog ate chocolate?

ask a vet

Dog pooped red and black balls.

Species: Dog
Breed: Lab mix
Age: 3-6 months
My dog once threw up a screw and has been eating her poop. Recently I found red and black balls in her poop. Can you tell me what she might have eaten and how I can prevent her from getting real sick?


Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

She sure sounds like a lab! Labs will eat almost anything. Labs are the most common breed that we have to do surgery on in order to remove objects that they have eaten that have gotten stuck in their intestines or stomach.

I have no idea what the red and black balls are.

If she is vomiting, not eating or lethargic then you should have your vet examine her and take some xrays.

I hope she is ok!

Dr. Marie.
