Question Please help with rubberband thief

My mom woke up early this morning because she discovered that Teddy had threw up a glob of 3 rubberbands

I first discovered he like to eat rubberbands, when I took him to an emergency vet on a sunday because he eat a grape. I read online that it could be fatal and I'll rather be safe than sorry. I tried to look online how to induce vomiting with hydrogen peroxide but didn't find it. The vet said I had to leave him for an hour. He called me later and said that he had vomited the grape and something else. When I got there I discovered he had also ate a rubberband.



I was extra careful after that, but then later on he pooped out a rubberband. My mom and I were on the lookout to not leave any of them laying around. Then about a two months ago, he threw up another.

Then today he threw up three. I don't know where he gets them from. We are careful not to leave any laying around.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? How can I stop him from eating them?

Wow! He does have a rubberband fetish doesn't he LOL! All I can suggest is that you keep those bands out of reach...he could be getting them off tables and counters! Put them in a
drawer, hide them, whatever... puppyproof your house!!!! Good luck!
p.s. I'm thinking he likes them cuz they smell like his family!

Yes he does. We have been careful with them since the first time. I thought he might get them from the car so I always check theres none before he gets in.

Hes a tiny toy so he cant get on counters but hes getting them somewhere. I guess we will have a rubberband hunt to make sure there isn't any laying around for Teddy to eat.

Hi there, do you have girls in the house that lose their bands? Do they belong to Teddy and they fall out of his hair and he eats them?

If not, it must be the rubber band fairy on special delivery to Teddy!

I wouldn't discard the fairy coming and driving rubberbands to Teddy lol

Just my mom and me and we don't leave our rubberbands around. Teddy is a boy so no rubberbands on him. We are super careful because we know.

Oh wow, When dogs eat stuff like that, it always scares me. I agree that the bands smell like you so Teddy wants them. I had a dog that used to steal the scrunchies right off my ponytail (it was the 1980's so there were a lot of scrunchies) - she was obsessed with them! I hope your diligence in keeping the bands out of sight will eliminate Teddy eating any more of them. Also I learned the hard way that we should keep info and necessary items to induce vomiting available, just in case.

Yes. We are triple checking to make sure we don't leave bands around. Poodles are just soo smart.

I wish I knew how to induce vomiting. When Teddy ate the grapes, I was trying to find out how to induce vomiting but couldn't figure it out so we just went to the vet. Wish I would have known would have saved me $100.

I didn't know about this forum then.

How do you induce vomiting?

I don't know the dose for a toy, but a mini is 2-3 teasp 3% hydrogen peroxide. I think the poison control center could help you on the correct dose, which is a good 'just-in-case' thing to know!

How do you induce vomiting?
How to Induce Pet Vomiting, in Case They Sample a Poison

This website will give you an idea. But just because your dog injests a substance you don't necessarily want them to vomit it up as it can do more harm coming back out. Seek vet advice but have some hydrogen peroxide on hand!
