"A Pennsylvania dog with a curious appetite is recovering from surgery to remove 62 hair bands, eight pairs of underwear and other items from her stomach.
Dr. Hisham Ibrahim of Good Shepherd`s Veterinary Hospital in Mars said he spent two hours operating on Tiki, the Weiss family`s black Labrador, and discovered the dog had swallowed items that also included four rubber bands and a Band-Aid."
New parents are vigilant about baby proofing their home; they pick up and store away any small items that a baby may swallow.
But parents of new dogs are often negligent about dog-proofing their home, dogs, especially puppies, will chew and eat almost anything.
Tiki the pooch is recovering after surgery to remove 62 hair bands, eight pairs of underwear and other miscellaneous items. This may seem hilarious, but poor Tiki is suffering because her owner was lax about dog-proofing her home.
Moral of this story: If you own a pooch, throw your dirty drawers in the hamper and don`t leave your hair bands lying around.
