What to Do if Your Dog Eats Something from the Ground

Step 3: If the object has already been swallowed, don’t panic. The dog is probably fine — unless it ate one of those things that turns dogs into radioactive piles of ghost bones, in which case it’s definitely not fine.
Step 4: Wipe your hands on the dog to get some of the slobber off. Make a mental note to wash your hands when you get home, but forget to do this.

Is it a poisoned meatball or just a cat turd? Either way, follow these simple steps to keep the situation under control.
