Picture This! A Quacky Image

    This radiograph was taken of an adult boxer that presented for possible ingestion of a rubber duck. The owners reported that the dog had been playing with the duck when it mysteriously went missing. We induced vomiting and found a rubber crab, but no duck, in the vomit. The owners stated that the crab had been missing for some time. We took radiographs, including the one here, which revealed the missing duck. The owners opted to wait in case the duck was able to pass on its own. We never received an update, but we'll never forget those radiographs!
