Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hey everyone,

My 4 1/2 month old husky took it upon himself to grab an entire crab on the beach and proceeded to eat it. I ran after him, told him to leave it, of course he didn't listen. I managed to get the claw from him but he ate the rest of the body. The crab was dead. Not happy. I am a little worried because of how sharp the shell and legs might be. Has anyone experienced this and if so, are crabs dangerous? Thanks!

The shell bits might be a little rough on him passing but for the most part small crabs should get broken down fairly well by the stomach acids. Large crabs have a little more brawn in their shells and aren't as easy to break down. I would keep an eye on him for any discomfort or pooping issues just in case but my initial instinct is that most, if not all, of the crab will be taken care of in digestion, at least enough so that it should pass without damage.

A dog can eat a crab with no problems. However, I would watch for any signs of illness because crabs can carry parasites. A healthy dogs immune system should handle it but just keep an eye out if there is a change in behavior/sickness.

Thanks for the advice guys! I have been watching his poop, or any vomiting. He did have some diarrhea so that was to be expected. what bugged me was that it was a big crab!! I was concerned about the parasites because he is still a puppy and was given treatment for Coccidia about a month ago. I can hardly wait until the puppy phase is over lol.
