Picture This! "Muppet Madness"

    Several years ago, a young Labrador retriever mix presented to our veterinarian's previous hospital with a 1-year history of chronic intermittent vomiting. The results of the radiographs were unremarkable, and the dog seemed to improve slightly on a bland diet. During endoscopy, a toy Ernie was discovered. The owner immediately remembered that the toy went missing about the same time that the vomiting started. We frequently use the story of Ernie when explaining to clients that not all items that pets ingest are found on radiographs!
