What kind of bizarre things has your dog eaten?
A small Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Disa was sniffing around her familyâ€™s camping equipment when she accidentally mistook the ten-inch long tent peg for a bone and ate it. The veterinarian was able to retrieve the peg and Disa is doing well.
Elaine Pendlebury, a veterinarian at PDSA (an animal organization in the UK) has retrieved fish hooks, condoms and even bras out of dogs. Pendlebury said that dogs use their mouths to explore as well as to eat, so sometimes the two functions get mixed up.
India, a Yorkshire terrier, was rushed to the animal hospital after her owner discovered that balloons were missing. The veterinarians retrieved eight balloons from her stomach.
One lucky veterinarian made some extra cash when Black, a mutt, swallowed some coins.
Little Toyah had a pair of baby’s booties, a scarf, and a sock removed from her stomach. Veterinarians were amazed over how she managed to swallow all of that fabric.
Saffy is not scared of needles at all. Her owner rushed her to the hospital when the dog was having trouble breathing. The veterinarians found a two-inch sewing needle and thread in Saffy which was causing her shortness of breath.
Deefer, a bull mastiff, has an underwear fetish. In a 12 month time span, he has chewed through 20 pairs of underwear. Most of the times, he will pass the underwear with no trouble at all. But during one of his underwear chomp fests, he had to go to the hospital and have an expensive surgery done. A pair of underwear had gotten stuck in his intestine.
While the veterinarian was operating on Deefer, he not only found his last pair that he was chewing on, but he found two other pairs in his stomach. He said that one of the pairs was almost intact.
His owner said Deefer has always had a habit of eating strange things. At first, it was socks and then the remote control and now woman’s underwear. His owner said Deefer is not interested in men’s underwear, only women’s.
