A woman came to the vet clinic recently with a dog that had stopped eating two days prior. She had taken him to the emergency clinic in the city first, where they did some blood work and took an x-ray, saw nothing, and sent him home with some medication. The dog got more and more listless, so the owner brought him to Bob. He felt a mass in the dog’s abdomen, consulted with one of his partners, and decided to do surgery. Guess what he found in the dog’s digestive tract? A mass of colorful rubber bands in different shapes that kids collect and wear as bracelets. That bag of Silly Bandz ended up costing hundreds of dollars. Something to think about!
