Rocky: The very hungry Labrador
At four months old, Labrador Cross Rocky was admitted to the local vet clinic for “removal of a foreign object”, which turned out to be a small plastic bottle cap.
Petcover’s resident vet, Dr Martin Hines explains, “For dogs and cats, a mouth is not just for eating. It is also used as a tool for carrying objects, to investigate, as well as for playing. Whether intentional or not, sometimes they can swallow things they shouldn’t. Toys, rocks, hair ties, socks, and underwear are common items that are swallowed that can get stuck in the gastrointestinal tract. Unfortunately, once it is stuck, the only way to remove the foreign object is through surgery. Even for a straightforward surgery with no complications, this can cost a few thousand dollars from the initial consultation until all the aftercare is finished.”
