Dogs and paintballs?

So I shoot my gun around the house and not all the balls break and I was wondering how bad it is for dogs to eat paintballs? My old boss at the field I used to reff said that if they eat more than 7 they could die I don't really want to kill my sister's boston terrier. Any input on this?

Wrong. It could very well kill them. I dont know how much it would take but I would keep them put up. If you look down a little through the older threads you'll find one title "Y'all need to see this" it has an article talking about dogs eating them. Sorry I would link you up but I'm on my iPhone and don't really feel like doing it lol. It's not that far down though.

obviously if a dog ate like a bag of them but otherwise paintballs are inert.

The LD50 of propylene glycol, the main ingredient in paintballs, is 9mL/kg to dogs as per Wikipedia, referencing Peterson, Michael; Talcott, Patricia A. (2006). Small animal toxicology. St. Louis: Saunders Elsevier. pp. 997. ISBN 0-7216-0639-3 if anyone wants to double check on that.

You have two options: Stop shooting paintballs in your house (seriously?), or don't let him near them. Assuming your sisters Boston Terrier weighs in at 18 pounds, and say that there's 3 mL in a paintball, he'll probably have some issues if he gets into a bag of them.

I meant that I shoot them outside around the house, lol. But I will for sure keep an eye on her when she's out there. She came in with orange on her face a couple weeks ago, and there was no strange behavior or anything afterwards. I don't think she liked it if she did eat one.

@markal1990, I found that thread and read the article. And I bet that dog got into a whole bag of balls.

It says they're non-toxic on the box, but I bet if any person ate them until they were full they would be in a good amount of pain. And I've never heard of a human consuming more than 10 paintballs (why would you anyway?) so I can only guess.

Had this issue awhile back. Forgot to put up my gear and one of my dogs ate half a bag. While they are non-toxic its still not good and could cause kidney issues and could kill them.

Luckily he just puked them all up an hour or so later. Wife wasnt to happy about the giant yellow spot on the grey carpet though. LOL

My 45lb boxer ate two full bags a year ago. It completely cleaned her out, but she made it through just fine.

I have seen dogs eat many paintballs. Never had a problem. Usually the oil gives them the runs or they vomit. My dogs usually lick my shooting cone in the back yard.

Another issue- I forget the name of it, but there is a condition resulting in blindness that can be triggered by dogs consuming a large amount of fat (like vegetable oil). I first heard about it when it happened to my nephew's yellow Lab.

paintballs are non toxic. TO HUMANS. that doesnt mean feed them to your dog. there have been lots of cases of dogs having bad issues from eating paintballs including deaths.
truely most of the bad situations have been dogs eating a lot of them but why risk it. esp if you have a small dog. all animals react differently to different things.

the label of non toxic doesnt make it 100 % safe for everything. grapes will shut down your dogs kidneys. onions will make them anaemic etc. just because its safe for you doesnt mean it is your pets.

My dog loves them. I spilled a whole pod once and she ate about 6 paintballs. Kinda weird that they like them that much...

My dog used to walk around and find all the unexploded paintballs in the yard. He would eat 5 or 10 every time. He loved them. He did just die though at the ripe old age of 17. ive been paint balling for 10 plus years. and he was right there to eat them everytime.


The owner of the field in my sig has a black lab that must eat between 10 to 30 paintballs every saturday and it is just fine.

people need to stop letting their dogs eat paintballs. just cause you think it is acting normal doesnt mean nothing bad can/did happen. like i said above my dog ate some grapes and she acted fine but her kidneys were all messed up for a long time. it's not good for them. if you have a pet it deserves the best care you can give it.
