Puppy ate a tiny piece of wrapping paper.

My 9lbs small Puppy ate a tiny piece of wrapping paper.

Is that OK? Or should I take him to the vet?

Of course I wasn't looking and thought I picked everything and he found it.

If it is paper, he will give you a colorful present in a day or so.
Seriously, he should be fine.

Yeah, our dog used to think Tinsel was a delicacy. Finally stopped putting it on the tree.

It makes finding their deposits in the back yard so much easier though!

One of our guys ate an entire birthday cake, including the candles and candle holders.
The plastic spikes were apparently cushioned by the cake, but we found all 30+ holders in the back yard during the next week.

If it is something that you personally could digest, so can he (unless it is poisonous, like poinsettia leaves or chocolate.)

Give him a good meal to cushion it.

My cat used to eat tissues and toilet paper sometimes. I'd find the TP unrolled with cat mouth sized bites in the end.

I was both grossed out and amused when my dog did this and he would run around with a string of tinsel hanging out of his ass.

To the OP, as others have said, your dog should be fine.

Friend of mine's dog ate the entire used roll of string left from cooking a whole pig on a spit. Took a day or so, but we noticed the dog walking around bow-legged, and found a 2 foot chunk of string hangin from his ass.. He stepped on it, dog kept walking away, must have been 30ft of string came out.. Was the funniest thing I ever saw, laffed my ass off.

for future reference since this was posted yesterday.....a small piece of paper should be fine and pass through.

Things like string, pantyhose, anything cloth that's large, ISN'T fine and should warrant a vet visit. Those things can easily cause an intestinal blockage. Tinsel also can cause blockage. It may sound funny when they eat these things, but it's not. Common sense should prevail. Watch for signs, like lethargy, signs of belly discomfort, refusing food, vomiting, drooling, diarrhea or no poo at all. If present, off to the vet ASAP.

My little 6 lb mini-aussie puppy used to go into the yard and bring in pieces of bushes and shrubs, and chew them. None were poisonous, but we wondered about the "roughage". It all came out fine. Our joke was "she's opening a new branch office"

Of course the common sense advice of other posters regarding watching for problems should still be applied, but I think a tiny piece of wrapping paper will pass just fine.

My cat ate a sewing needle once. That got removed surgically.

My dog Lucy ate an entire pack of yellow Post-its. We only knew because we found the cello wrapping and a partially chewed pad behind a chair.

Came out a couple of days later, still yellow, but the worst for wear. Got pics somewhere.

Her bother Desi will chow down on any used tissues he can find.
They don't come out white.

Re: Puppy ate a tiny piece of wrapping paper.

Many years decades ago our very young English Cocker puppy ate a men's size 9 sock. It was in his confined area to play with. We didn't notice it missing, but we certainly noticed it when it re-appeared out the opposite end of his body. I don't think a small piece of paper is worth worrying about.

Of course I wasn't looking and thought I picked everything and he found it.

Dogs especially larger ones (even when puppies and if puppy and 9 lbs likely is) are pretty resilient as long as object not hard and bulky.

Like my sisters dog liked to swallow small ball like objects that required surgery.

But my dog not full grown ate a plastic bag or wrap that had, had food in it.... and yes a day later not even knowing he had done it came out in an interestingly sculpted poop no harm.

If I may ask, are you a new dog owner? I know I was very paranoid with my first puppy! I'm 36, and I've now owned or temp homed 6 dogs. The dogs I temp home were either given to me, found, or rescues.

My first Boston Terrier wasn't too bad, but would eat rubber bits from her toys. At 13 she is still kickin! Albeit nearly blind and deaf... In her old age she wasn't doing well at my house, because of my daughter. The daily battle with (at the time) a curious infant was too much. My dad (70yo) took her, and they do everything together.

I've had two dogs that would run to my woodpile, grab logs, and chew them to a pulp. One was a Lab and the other an English Bulldog. They're very well fed, I always have plenty of toys, and we'd go walking (Bulldog) or running (Lab) almost daily. After battling it for a few months I just said "screw it." Both are nearly 10 now, and happy at their forever home.

A friend had to move into an apartment that didn't allow pit bulls, and I took care of her for about 18 months. She was amazing to have around. Probably the most well mannered and well trained dogs I've had.

I currently have two 3yo male Australian Shepherds (a tri-black and blue merle). I always see them chewing in the yard, but now I'm numb to it. Rope, wood, rubber balls, screen, bugs, and lord only knows what else.

You should see the insane things my dog eats. I have a 55# Australian Shepherd,
