Dog swallowing earrings

Postby megan203 » Wed Sep 29, 2004 11:37 am

So, I was reading the online journal of one of the local animal shelters and this is what I saw
It was a rather interesting day at the shelter. One of the first events to hit us today concerned our waggish puppy, Johnny. Somehow, he managed to
grab hold of a woman's serrated earring and. . . dun, dun, dun.... the earring now resides within our little friend. It is now our duty to fill him with food in order to make him "earringless."

Wouldn't it had made more sense to make the dog vomit to get the earring out, thus causing less damage to his insides? :huh?:

I guess the "serrated" part was what got me....

pointy edges?

It just seemed kinda weird. I'm just going to assume that they know what they're doing.

I used to wear earrings..this is precisely the reason I now do not...Storm took the same earring out of my ear twice...and twice I got it back by 'treasure hunting' :oops: they stay in thier velvet box..its safer there!

I dont know what a serrated earring is ...but I am pretty sure it will come out the other end ok

Sometimes it's better to let something pass than try to get it to come back up. Though they should have fed the dog cotton balls to wind up with the earring to protect the stomack and intestines.

And 'serrated' is ridged. Steak knives are serrated.
