Candy, a Jack Russell, went fishing with her owner and accidentally swallowed a bait hook, line and sinker. Literally.
He rushed her to the vet and the x-ray showed that there was a 2 inch steel hook stuck inside her. Instead of performing surgery, the vet told Candy’s owner to feed her a diet of banana sandwiches. After two days, Candy passed the hook and the problem was solved. Candy’s vet said that it’s sometimes better to feed a pet a high fiber diet instead of performing surgery and “banana sandwiches come very high up on the list.” The banana — not just for monkeys.
