Puppy Swallows Sock Whole, Lives to Bark About Itthe daily dish
According to WJW-TV, Koda Bear, a blue-eyed, 5-month-old Husky was playing a game of "keep away" with his sister, Bolt. Suddenly, the sock was gone. Their owner, Paige Mutual, said that it all happened so fast.
"The first lap around, the sock was in his mouth. The second lap around, the sock was gone."
The sock had found its way down Koda Bear's throat and into his stomach. Mutual immediately rushed Koda Bear to Blue Pearl Veterinary Hospital and met with internal-medicine specialist Dr. Melanie Otte.
Luckily for Koda Bear and Mutual, Dr. Otte did not have to perform surgery. She did, however, have to give the hungry dog an endoscopy.
"It's a long tube with a camera on the end, and I can just run instruments through it, grab the sock and pull it out," said Otte. The sock was removed after a 15-minute procedure.
Mutual plans to keep her dogs out of the laundry room from now on.
