I've been wondering since my dog has been throwing up lately and none of their products look like ours and I've been worried cuz wouldn't their throats start getting ate away at?

Other animals do have acidic stomachs. Dogs can dissolve bone fragments if they are small enough. Alligators eat things whole and don't bat an eye. Owls and snakes can dissolve almost everything. Our stomach acid is paltry compared to these mean critters.
