Omg my puppy just ate a dead mouse

Seriously , I'm not sure what else could happen in one week! She was in the back yard working away at eating something and we decided a few days ago to not be on her each time. My husband decided to bring her in and tried to get what it was out of her mouth and realized it was a dead mouse!!! Ewwwwwwwwww !!!!!! I am now thinking what can possibly happen because of this. I have no idea how the mouse died , oh I really hope it was killed by a cat and not poison. Now she has dead mouse breath ewwwwww!!!! And what about her shots she is not fully vaccined like rabies etc. I think we just got over the battle of diahrrea now I pray we are not back to square one. Anyone else had this happen ???

Yes, and the dead mouse had a flea on it and Cody got a case of tape worms. Check her anus area a few times a day and her stools for the next week. Tape worms look like white rice but is very easy to treat with just one pill.
Good luck.

Yep....my dog is a mouser and when the cat was here they would tag team....
Cat would bring the dead ones home and Lib would find them before us and eat them. NASTY!!! She would also hunt and kill them herself if she found them in a field.
The biggest fear is that the mouse died of poisoning....However if you found it outdoors and if you have cats in the neighborhood that tips the scales in your favor...this time of year (in cold regions)once a mouse is in your house and has a found convenient heat/food/water source...they dont generally leave to stroll the yard. :-)

The next concern is tapeworm - tapes are not covered by most worming meds...
Speak with your vet regarding dosing a young dog with praziquantel which covers both common varieties of tapes.

My last golden retriever had tapeworms from eating either a dead mouse or dead bird, as did one of my cats. Be on the lookout for that. Easy to treat. I don't even like to think about the mouse being poisoned.

Tapeworms are really the only bad consequence that's particularly likely. It's unlikely that mouse poison would be concentrated enough from one mouse to hurt a dog, even if the mouse had died of poisoning. It's also next to impossible for rabies to be an issue in this situation.

So keep an eye out for tapeworms, but you may even dodge that bullet too. And even if you don't, they're INCREDIBLY gross but easy to treat.

Thanks I have had a cat that had that a long time ago and remember how gross it was but how easy it was to get rid of. Wow this little cute puppy has had a great first week :-/ I am sure my breeder has loved getting all my emails , I dare not send her one about this , although if anything it would just be a story of how the puppy is doing and of her adventures

You will either to keep on a leash each time she goes outside or police the yard thoroughly before she goes out - each and every time.
