Dane's Stomach Full of Socks, but Winning Frog Full of Rocks

By    |   Thursday, 04 Sep 2014 10:00 AM

A 3-year-old Great Dane that had consumed 43 ½ socks might have been the strangest case an Oregon emergency animal hospital ever had, but not stranger than the winner of the "They Ate WHAT?" contest of a veterinary magazine.

The dog was miserable and retching when its owners rushed it to the DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital in Portland.

X-rays showed a stomach full of "a large quantity of foreign material." Nearly two hours of surgery later, Dr. Ashley Magee had the answer — the dog had consumed dozens of socks.

DoveLewis spokeswoman Shawna Harch said it's perhaps the strangest case in the hospital's history, The Oregonian reported.

So strange that the hospital entered last February's tale, complete with X-rays, in the annual contest sponsored by Veterinary Practice News and won a prize.

The $1,500 first place winner was a Plano, Texas, animal hospital that treated an exotic frog that ate more than 30 small ornamental rocks from its cage.

The DoveLewis entry summary said the Great Dane was discharged home a day after surgery. Harch said the owners weren't available for comment but she confirmed the dog was alive. No word on what he's eaten lately.
