Picture This! — Where Trouble Goes, Trouble Follows

    Trouble, a 1-year-old, female poodle, came to our 24-hour emergency hospital after her owner had complained about a piece of fencing stuck in the dog's throat. The owners had an outdoor run that the dogs would play in when it was cooler out, and Trouble had run into part of the fence. We figured it would be a small piece, so we were not ready for what we saw. Trouble came in with a very large piece of fencing still hanging from her mouth. On presentation, radiographs showed no apparent damage. The fencing had managed to wind its way downward, so we sedated Trouble, removed the piece and the puppy went home free of the fence. She continues to do well today.
