Doh! Dog Eats Homer

 

Updated : May 1, 2009

Vets were stunned when X-rays revealed the source of a dog's stomach illness - a Homer Simpson figure.

The plastic toy was inside a chocolate egg eaten by 10-year-old Dixie.

The Dalmatian-collie needed emergency surgery to remove Homer from her intestine.

Dixie's owner, Victoria Keir, 42, from Aberdeen, said she took the dog to the city's PDSA PetAid hospital after she stopped eating and became unwell.

PDSA veterinary surgeon Alison Hamel said: "Dixie was very ill when she was brought in. She had lost a lot of weight and was extremely dehydrated.

"We needed to discover quickly what was wrong to provide the right treatment in time.

"The X-rays confirmed there was a foreign body but it was a big surprise to discover a plastic egg shell with Homer Simpson inside.

"We see many objects that have been swallowed but this has to be one of the most unusual.

"Dixie came through surgery without any complications but if it had been left any longer, it could have proved fatal."

The dog was kept in for two days following her operation and prescribed a special diet for a fortnight to help her gain weight and aid her recovery.
