Great Dane’s upset stomach yields 43 socks (video)

PORTLAND, Sept 4, 2014:

The 3-year-old Great Dane was miserable and retching when its owners rushed him to a northwest Portland emergency animal hospital.

It was something he ate.

X-rays showed a stomach full of foreign material. After nearly two hours of surgery, Dr Ashley Magee had the answer — the dog had consumed 43 ½ socks.

DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital spokeswoman Shawna Harch said it was perhaps the strangest case in the hospital’s history, The Oregonian reported (http://is.gd/Zb55C9 ).

The hospital entered last February’s tale, complete with X-rays, in an annual contest sponsored by the vet magazine, Veterinary Practice News, and won a prize.

The DoveLewis says the Great Dane was sent home a day after surgery, and is still alive. There was no word on what he has eaten lately.

A Great Dane in Oregon has fully recovered after having 43 ½ socks surgically removed from its stomach.

Perhaps even more astonishing: This is coming to light because the dog’s story was submitted to a “They Ate WHAT?” contest for veterinary hospitals, and it came in third. First place went to a clinic that treated a frog that had eaten more than 30 small rocks. (The frog also recovered.) You can see X-rays of the other winning entrants, and honorable mentions (including a bearded dragon that ate a small toy banana), at Veterinary Practice News.

A vet extracted almost 44 whole socks from the stomach of one dog
Maybe that’s where all of your odd socks have gone

Yes, this really happened. A three year old Great Dane was taken to DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospitals by its owners, who were concerned about its repeated vomiting and retching.

When Dr Ashley Magee took the pup for X-rays she found “a lot of foreign materials in his stomach”. The unidentified matter was clearly not digestible, so surgery was the only option.

We can’t imagine the veterinarian was fully prepared for what she found next

During the almost two-hour surgery she pulled out one sock, then another, and another… eventually removing 43 1/2 garments.

The dog made a full recovery, but the fate of that other half of sock 44 remains unknown.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The 3-year-old Great Dane was miserable and retching when its owners rushed him to a northwest Portland emergency animal hospital.

It was something he ate!

X-rays showed a stomach full of “a large quantity of foreign material.” Nearly two hours of surgery later, Dr. Ashley Magee had the answer — the dog had consumed 43 ½ socks.

DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital spokeswoman Shawna Harch said it’s perhaps the strangest case in the hospital’s history, The Oregonian reported.

So strange that the hospital entered last February’s tale, complete with X-rays, in an annual contest sponsored by the vet magazine, Veterinary Practice News, and won a prize. Fittingly enough, the contest is called “They Ate WHAT?”

Even stranger. The $1,500 first place winner was a Plano, Texas, animal hospital that treated an exotic frog that ate more than 30 small ornamental rocks from its cage.

The DoveLewis entry summary says the Great Dane was discharged home a day after surgery. Harch says the owners aren’t available for comment but she confirms the dog is alive. No word on what he’s eaten lately.

Socks. They’re just not for feet anymore. They make pretty tasty snacks too–if you happen to be a 3-year-old Great Dane. Just don’t eat too many–like 43 socks, for example. Dr. Ashley Magee at DoveLewis Animal Hospital in Portland, Oregon, told CNN affiliate KGW, “We opened up his stomach and kept removing sock after sock of all different shapes and sizes.” The super-sized pooch had shown a…

The culprit!

Not one, two or even 20 pairs of socks folks, but 43 pairs of socks, well 43-and-a-half. That’s what was found in the belly of an Oregon Great Dane when surgeons at DoveLewis Animal Hospital operated on him. The dog’s family brought the animal in to the nonprofit hospital when they noticed he was vomiting and retching. Said DoveLewis surgeon Ashley Magee:
