Lending new cred to the adage that dogs will eat anything, Portland surgeons discovered a great Dane had eaten more than 40 socks.
X-rays turned up what Dr. Ashley Magee described as “a lot of foreign material,” when worried owners brought the sick animal to Dove Lewis for emergency surgery in February.
Opening up the dog’s stomach, the material turned out to be sock after sock after sock – 43 1/2 socks in all.
The story has just now come to light, because Dove Lewis entered the great Dane’s x-ray in an industry journal competition for Veterinary Practice News.
