Our EB eats sticks constantly and has thrown up only a few times, not enough for her to learn from it. It is impossible to get the sticks from her unless we wave a treat in front of her. Is there a way to stop this? She has no had any health problems from this so far (fingers crossed). Thanks!

My AB eats sticks all the time. I have to limit her time outside because she always has a stick in her mouth. She'll eat them and throw up around 3am faithfully. Then she has really soft stools for about a week, then she's fine. But it's a never ending cycle because she keeps eat them. We have gone as far as to have all of our huge white oaks, except one (need some shade), out of the yard. The less that's in there the better. I guess!

Someone once told me that the reason my dog eats so many sticks is because she's lacking something in her diet. I don't know if it's true or not. Another person told me it was behavioral. Well I'm switching food and she starts training on the 24th, so we'll see. :D

Oh goodness! Hopefully your grass will go quickly. Best of luck to you! I have plenty of grass and my girl still locates them. If it's not sticks it's mulch. It's a shame we have to go through this. Ha!

Geez we have similiar issues. We rescued a 8 week old the day before I had major surgery and was on bed rest for two weeks. DUUUH! I don't know what we were thinking. Congratulations on your wedding and good luck if you do get the puppy!
