Veterinary Highlights: They Ate What?

Does your dog eat weird things in spite of your best efforts? 

We've been quite lucky that with some careful work our guys don't try eating any really weird things, though Cookie had a history of eating rocks and JD used to eat sticks.

Cookie also used to chew up everything in sight when she came to us, but didn't eat it. And learned which things are appropriate and which are not.

Veterinary Practice News runs an annual radiograph contest featuring the wildest and weirdest things pets ingested.

I've been following this for a few years, some of the things that get eaten are quite mind-boggling. Not just because of the why but often also how. There was a contestant that somehow managed to swallow a serrated knife! Surviving something like that is nothing short of a miracle.

I'm just glad that all the contestants made it through their adventures and recovered.

The winner this year was a 5 month old Pittie who swallowed an 8-inch section of a dog toy handle.

I know that one cannot control everything. But do your best keeping your dogs safe and off such contests.
