An Oklahoma veterinarian made a shocking discovery recently when a family brought in their sick Shar-Pei. According to Oklahoma City's KOKH-TV, the 4-year-old pup had 21 pacifiers in its stomach. The dog had been vomiting and losing weight, and after "Dovey" vomited up a pacifier, the family began to think they had solved their newborn's recent "missing binkie dilemma."
An x-ray at the Gentle Care Animal Hospital suggested Dovey had swallowed 7-9 pacifiers, but when Dr. Chris Rispoli performed surgery, he ended up removing 21. "In 20 years, this is the craziest surgery I've ever done." he admitted.
