That is totally insane! I bet some idiots will forces object down their pets just to be in the contest!

You know I want to say that nobody would that to their pet, but you are right there is some evil people out there, as much as dogs eat crazy stupid things too.

:( aw... Bestia and Guero are very sneaky at eating things they find in the floor, I remember Bestia ate a tiny rock once when he was a baby, and there has been a couple times where I have had to help him pull out a little string of something out... and not from the mouth :yuck:

wow, I'm glad my critters aren't into eating weird things!! Bayley will grab and eat the odd kleenex if I don't get it from her. They seem to know what's food and what's not...thank goodness!!

I belive the xrays are submitted from the vets themselves

I noted some of the items were removed by endoscopy. Some of them looked sharp. Gulp. Oh, sorry, wrong word. Yikes.

a ratchet set good lord :wall: so thats were they went!!!

Barkingdog April 11th, 2013 07:41 PM

I just can't see a dog eating a whole ratchet set, the poor dog had to been forces fed it . I would never go to a vet that ran a contest like this.

It's not a contest being run by a vet, Barkingdog. The rads are compiled by submission from private practice. I doubt the owners have any idea ahead of time that anyone would even be interested. There are no 'prizes'. Sort of like the Darwin awards. :D

Jull April 12th, 2013 09:16 AM

It really just make me wonder how did they do it? how can the swallow something to big and not get hurt? :yuck:

I think when I was a kid I had Pica too... I used to eat coins and marbles! :D

I guess in this case it would the 'prize' for dumbest pet owner if they did force their poor pet to eat an object.
