Izzy is a middle-aged Clumber Spaniel. She likes to eat things, but REALLY loves eating rocks. In the past 3 years she has had surgery twice for the very same thing … eating as many rocks as will fit into her stomach! Take a look at the x-ray below
Although no one really understands why little Izzy loves to eat rocks, we think that there must be a genetic predisposition. For example, Izzy’s mom ate rocks, her mom’s mom even ate rocks!
Although Izzy eats these rocks on a regular basis (will need to wear a muzzle when outside to prevent) it’s only when she eats the wrong one, one that is larger than a ping-pong ball. And oooops! Everything comes to a screeching halt … except for poor Izzy’s adopted mom that gets her into the car for a ride to the ER!
*look closely and you can see the larger rock that crashed the party …
