Default Eating Glitter!?

Hi! I started decorating for the holidays this past weekend. Since it is Chuy's first Christmas, I was curious how he would react to all the decor. He is doing pretty well but I am a little nervous about him nibbling all the fallen glitter on the floor! I keep vaccuming but some of these ornaments are bound to "shed!"

Does this happen to anyone else or does anyone have advice if this is dangerous?

-Aimee

You're going to see the sparkliest poops in town. Sorry, couldn't resist!

I think frequent vacuuming should be OK. I would think glitter would just pass right through. But obviously try to limit how much she gets.

Sparkling poop may start a new xmas trend.
In reguards to the dogs though I don't think
it will do any harm.

If it is sharp edged glitter or aluminum then you may run into some problems. I would call your vet. I know that aluminum and tinsil (sp?) and such can be dangerous if digested. As for sharp edges, I would think it could possibly cause some damage when passing? Sorry I dont want to scare you but I would check to be on the safe side if it were me
