Like a lot of dogs, he swallows first and decides whether or not it was food afterwards. dane1 Normally these things work themselves out in the end. But one day when he started to vomit repeatedly, his owners took him to the Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital in Portland, OR., where he helped them earn second place. danexr4 His x-rays, showing 44 socks, won the clinic the $500 second place prize in the 2014 X-Ray Contest Winners from The Veterinary Practice News. danexr4 He arrived with a distended stomach so was treated with exploratory surgery, which quickly revealed the cause. dane2 After the 43 1/2 socks were removed, he recovered quickly and was sent home the next day. dane3 We recommend that he pass on the socks.
