Default Help please!

Does anyone know if the little white foam things that come as padding in a box are poisonous to chi's? They look like white cheese puffs or Wotsits as we call them here. Rolo has just eaten half a one, I managed to wrestle it off of him after chasing round the room for 5 minutes but I think he' swallowed half of it. It had gone sort of melted and squashed where he'd chewed it so not 100% sure. Would have only been about half an inch but I'm more worried about what they are made of than blockages

Packing peanuts- that's what I call em. They are styrofoam so I would imagine they aren't good but I don't know. Sorry wish I could be more help!

I've googled it and it seems to be that they cause more of a problem for causing blockages so I'm hoping that's correct. He wouldn't have eaten enough to do that, I was thinking more if the chemicals in them

And while we're at it, how do I stop him running off with things? Every time he has something bad I end up chasing him, he thinks its a great game and goes even faster. No amount of chastising him makes any difference and when I finally do catch him, we have a wrestle, he boxes with me trying to stop me removing the offending item from his mouth. The only way I can get him to drop things is by giving him a tiny bit if something from the fridge but then I feel I'm rewarding him for bad behaviour

I always have some of Ike's food in my pocket, so when that happens he will drop it to get his food. I consider it as rewarding him for doing what I asked. I don't think the small amount that he got of the shipping peanuts will hurt him.

My puggle ate a few of them when he was a puppy. He didn't have any issues. He was bigger than a chi but he was still small and ate a considerable amount more than your chi did. He got them on Christmas Day when no one was looking and thought they were super yummy. I would say Rolo will be fine.

Unfortunately, there will always be a time or two when they get something they shouldn't. But it sounds like he will be fine.

I have the same problem with Angel as you do with Rolo taking things. Although, now that he is older he is not so bad. But when I give the drop it command, 99% of the time he will drop it - in anticipation of getting a treat! It's not a great thing, but after all, it is kind of cute - as long as they are not destructive and don't get over weight!
