Dogs – We love them but boy can they find trouble! Chewing on things is a normal part of puppyhood so before you rush your pooch to the vet, here is a list of some commonly eaten, and thankfully non-toxic, items. If your pup chews any of these, don't worry about toxicity. The only real concern is the potential for obstruction if the object or container becomes lodged in the stomach or intestines. Also, you can expect some vomiting and maybe even a little diarrhea from eating a non-food item.
