Girlfriend caught & gobbled in a few bites. Just to confirm, I don't need to worry about this beyond the possibility of worms? She's on Interceptor & up to date on vacs.

She is true to her breed! Guess no breakfast for her. Poor mouse. I think mice end up in lots of dogs' stomachs. It's a food chain kinda thang.

No real worries... Just extra protein.... I don't even treat for tapes unless I see evidence of tapes in their poo... I do not like to over worm my dogs.

Thanks, guys! After my initial shock that she'd done it, I couldn't help but be proud at how pleased with herself she seemed afterwards, LOL.

Wally is jealous.

He tried to get the mouse that was hanging around, but no luck. He constantly searched for it, though.

I agree. No worries, but you might also see some looser stools for a few days, b/c you didn't slowly introduce the mouse into the diet to give the gut a chance to adapt. If this causes a problem, next time provide smaller mice over a few days :)

My previous lab had chronically loose stools. One day, he caught a mouse, swallowed it (probably whole) and his stools firmed up.

I considered whether to get some feeder mice and introduce them as a regular part of his diet.

My daughter has lost track of the mice that Zeke, her miniature schnauzer, has killed - along with a red squirrel and a couple of rabbits. (The rabbits were not a lot smaller than he is.)
