Marely had a small procedure done last week. It all began when he broke one of his nails on Christmas eve. The vet took a sample of his blood… and found a few levels in his liver were elevated.
She did an x-ray and saw something very interesting. It looked like Marley had swallowed a dogtag! There was a cirlce with a small rectangle sticking out of it.
So we had to have a the vet basically go into his belly to remove this item. They did not have to have surgery… whew! But nevertheless.. it would not be a great day for our dog.
Well, what they found was WAY more then they bargained for. They proceded to pull out of Marley’s belly, the following items:
1 dime AND… a small little rectangle necklace that belonged to Alissa!
95 cents and a necklace! Sounds like a country song!
When I got the call from the vet describing what they had found, I couldn’t believe it! I just thoought… ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
I of course SWORE to them that I feed my dog dogfood … and the amazing thing is that there were NO PENNIES!!! Yay! Pennies can be very dangerous if swalloed by a dog. So thank you gardian angel over dogs! I am thankful!
YOU gottal LOVE THAT FACE!!
We LOVE YOU Marley…
What the heck… does my dog have an identity crisis and think he’s a puppy bank?
Well, they did retrieve all of these items safely form his belly.. and he went home to rest for the day!
