A Thai vet recently tended to an dog that had swallowed 38 rubber ducks, 32 of which had to be surgically removed. A young woman from Pattaya bought a box of 50 yellow rubber duckies as decorations for a swimming pool.
These were ingested by her 2-year-old American bulldog, Davel, while she slept. The woman noticed something was wrong when Davel threw up a chewed up rubber toy in front of her.
When she went to check the box of rubber duckies she noticed there were only 12 of them left and she rushed her pooch to a nearby vet clinic where surgery was successfully performed.
