HELP!! My dog just ate 4 crayons!!!!!!

I am freaking out!!! I just got home and I found about 4 crayons on the floor mostly eaten. My dog ate them! The vet is closed and I don't know what to do. She only weighs about 10 pounds, so 4 crayons is a lot. Can this hurt her? Is she going to be okay? I am going to call the vet first thing in the morning, but for now I am just so worried. She has never done this before, I have no idea where this came from!

She'll be fine. Crayons are non-toxic.



She may leave some very festive surprises for you in the yard for a few days, though.

I doubt they'll do her any harm. Crayons are non-toxic, no? Look at the box, I'm pretty sure they are. Especially since we leave kids with them unattended. Most likely she'll get a slight upset tummy and she'll either pass them or you'll get to have some fun cleaning up rainbow barf.

I ate crayons as a kid. Mom said she called the doctor and he told her I'd have very colorful poop, but that was it.

She'll be fine! Every dog does this at least once if there are kids in the house (thus crayons not put away). Your backyard will have decorative piles in it for awhile.

Relax! As previously stated, crayons are non toxic.

My German Shepherd loves to eat crayons. Yes...she's about 55 lbs heavier than your dog...but they never hurt her...and it adds a bit of a punch to her poopy

She'll have some colorful poop but otherwise s/b fine assuming they were toxic free ones. It's possible they might constipate her so if you have something that might relieve her I'd suggest giving it to her. Also encourage water.

Mabel sometimes has "confetti poops" as we call it. She used to eat crayons anytime she could. We try to keep them out of her reach now!!

Don't worry, she will be fine!

We used to have Beagle when I was little that ate my crayons all the time. She would poop candles.

Apparently I had some sort monster personality issue
Apparently, it's all about the candy

a list of things my mom's dog has eaten in the last year (the dog is only about 10 lbs):

-(at least) 3 zippers off of sweatshirts/jackets...2 were within the last week
-the corner of a rug
-the laces to my keen shoes along with the toggle clasp
-2 straps off of pocketbooks
-dried leaves
-a small foam shape from a kid's art project

that's all i can think of right now. I'm positive there's plenty more but I just wanted to put your mind at ease. my mom's dog is fine (physically) and has never had any problems after eating any of these things. She actually found out that the dog ate them when she saw them after they came through her.

good luck with your dog

We have a choclate lab that used to eat crayons. I didn't even realize it until he started dropping confetti in the back yard

I'm sure your little guy will be ok. Keep an eye on him.

Something else just came to mind too.....I was cleaning Madisons room (total mess) and she had all these beads all on the floor. Mabel was in there...and I was so amazed she wasn't eating them....well....I WAS WRONG!!!.....The next day when I went to clean up the yard.....her poop was full of different colored beads!!

The whole time I was cleaning, I just thought she was sniffing them!!!

I could also make a list of the things of found in her poop!!!

Rainbow poop, you guys are cracking me up!!!

Anyway, thanks for the reassurance. I am glad to hear she should be fine. I will now always remember to put the crayons away. She used to be a chapstick eater, I didn't know crayons were next on her list! It's not like we don't feed her....she's a little on the...um...round side
