This Dog Chew is More Dangerous Than You Think
« on: November 06, 2016, 06:45:38 PM »
When Rusty, a Golden Retriever, walked into the treatment area, I could see he was worried. There was a lot of saliva on his lips and chest. As he got closer, I heard the sound of him struggling to breathe. His tongue was light purple from lack of oxygen! Now my heart skipped a beat, too.
Lucky for me, he was a very easy going dog and allowed me to put my hand in his mouth. I could feel something very slimy at the back of his tongue. I was just able to grasp it with my fingernails and pulled out a thick piece of rawhide chew. It had gotten stuck at the back of his mouth as he tried to swallow it.
