Eating rotten fruit and veggies...

Post by nesla.. » Sat, 02 Dec 1995 04:00:00



My wonderful neighbor has started "composting" old fruit and vegetables
by throwing it loose into her garden patch now that all the plants have
been plowed under.  My dog thinks it's the best snack ever, to the
point that I mostly can't take her out in her own back yard (which
adjoins this garden patch) without a leash anymore.

I think the rotten veggies give her flatulence, but is there anything
more serious it might cause?  Can she actually get sick from it?
(I get sick just thinking about it, but then doggie likes to eat
rabbit droppings so she has a different standard than I do.)
