We were getting our puppy certified to be a therapy dog and we had to get a letter from the vet saying that she was healthy. This includes taking a stool sample to the vet. So after I "gathered" the sample and put it into a plastic baggy I noticed something black. After taking a look, it noticed what it was -- the dog had eaten a test strip!
