If I know anything about veterinary medicine it’s this:
If something’s wrong, odds are it’s something they ate.
So when something was wrong with Smidge I totally called it, ” I think she ate a staple.”
Here’s her xray.
This is her stomach full of food.
And this is the staple at the start of her intestine.
And this appears to be a spiral notebook she apparently ate as well.
As you can see the staple is completely opened flat. And if you think that was easy for her to swallow, it was not. I had to wrap it in a piece of ham just to get her to take it.
