Vet Removes 62 Hair Bands and Lots of Underwear From Labrador's Stomach

In Mars, Pennsylvania, a black Lab is recovering after surgery to remove quite a few unusual items from her stomach. When X-rays showed a mysterious mass in Tiki’s stomach, Dr. Hisham Ibrahim performed exploratory surgery, where he discovered she’d eaten 62 hair bands, 8 pairs of underwear and several other smaller items, including bandaids. “I found this hair band attached to another hair band to another one to another one and to other things again," Ibrahim said. “Thank God, we were able to pull through, and Tiki's recovered very well." — Read it at Pittsburgh’s WTAE
