  • First of all, one of my dogs eats wood all the time. He also eats rocks and pretty much anything, but he has never had dry heaves or a cough afterwards. It sounds like she probably has splinters in her throat which need to be taken out. You don't want them to get infected! What kind of wood did she eat? Was it just like a tree branch, or was it wood off of furniture?

  • I would definitely speak with a vet. If there are some splinters of wood caught in the throat that could cause major problems. If no splinters....I have one word for you.....Fiber.
