Tips on dog-proofing your home

    Since your dog's esophagus is larger than her intestine, she's able to eat objects that can lodge in her bowel and cause problems.

    Watch out especially for:

  • Plastic toys

  • Rawhide chews

  • Bones

  • Sticks

  • Rocks

  • Clothes, especially underwear, socks, and pantyhose

  • Batteries

  • Golf balls

  • Bedding

  • Metal screening

  • Shoelaces

  • String, ribbons

  • Thread

  • Certain fiber-based laxatives

  • Coins
