I have a popular saying when I’m hungry: “I’m so hungry that I could eat everything in my house!” I don’t mean that literally.
It seems that Tiki, a black Lab, has the same thought when she’s hungry. Only, she means it literally.
After not responding to the typical treatments for vomiting and diarrhea, Tiki’s humans took her to her vet, Dr. Hisham Ibrahim at Good Shepherd Veterinary Hospital in Mars, Pa.
There, Dr. Ibrahim discovered that the pup had eaten 62 hair bands, 8 pairs of underwear, 4 rubber bands and a band-aid!
This amount of “food” in a pup’s stomach could be deadly. Gratefully, Dr. Ibrahim removed all of the objects during a 2 hour surgery.
It’s likely that this not-so-discerning food connoisseur consumed these items over a period of days, rather than all at once. Tiki is on the mend, but returns to her hero vet for a follow-up in a few days.
