Help! Our puppy ate the car seat!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My DH left the Britax booster seat on the ground outside and our 8 month old German Shepherd ate the foam part of the seat!! greensad.gif. It's the foam piece that goes under the cloth seat cover. It really seems like more of a comfort factor, because now he'll have to sit on plastic rather than a comfortable pad. My DH feels this isn't a safety issue.

Any thoughts? Can I use this car seat? Thanks!

I think that foam is integral to the safety protection feature.  You'll need to get a new seat.

If it was gray foam, it was comfort padding.  If it was white foam, it was EPS foam, which is a crash force reducer.   Either way, the seat is still safe to use, but if it was EPS foam, you shouldn't use it again until you get a replacement from Britax.

I would call Britax and see if you can get a replacement for the foam.  It shouldn't be too expensive.
