Picture This! — Mako's Belly of Treasure

    Mako, a 7-month-old, male golden retriever, presented to our clinic after eating a braided rawhide in front of his owner. Radiographs did not reveal a foreign body, but we knew it was there. Surgery revealed the suspected rawhide, a sock, an ear bud, a toy piece with Velcro on it and a plastic ring. Mako's owner was not aware that Mako had eaten anything other than the rawhide.
