An X-ray showed he had a foreign body in his stomach, and needed urgent surgery to remove it.
When our vets opened up Bobo’s stomach, they found a yellow egg-shaped box.
“The surgery team carefully removed the item and were shocked to discover not only had Bobo swallowed a Kinder Surprise plastic shell, but also that a Michelangelo Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toy was still inside!” Tracy explained.
We weren’t able to find the wrapping, so we don’t know whether this passed through or whether the cheeky dog carefully removed it before swallowing the chocolate egg.
“Foreign bodies like toys can cause blockages inside a dog’s gut, which can sadly be fatal if not removed in time, so they need to be treated quickly,” added Tracy.
“If you are concerned that your dog may have eaten something they shouldn’t have, call your vet as soon as possible for advice.”
