    Default 13 golf balls found inside 'rattling' dog

    Thirteen golf balls were found inside Oscar.

    A dog had to have 13 golf balls removed from its stomach after eating them on walks around a Fife course.
    Owner Chris Morrison had been taking five-year-old black labrador Oscar round the Pitreavie golf course in Dunfermline for several months.
    He took Oscar to the vet after noticing a rattling sound coming from his pet's stomach.
    They then discovered that 13 balls - each weighing 45 grams - were lodged in his stomach.
    Mr Morrison, a planning administrator, said one of the balls had been in his stomach so long that it had turned black and was decomposing.
    He said: "He finds golf balls like truffles. We're not sure how long exactly this happened over, but it must have been a fair period - several months at least.
    "I felt his stomach and heard them rattling around.
    "He normally brings a few home, but I had no idea he had eaten so many.

    He is a black lab so he is a fair size, but to swallow 13 is quite amazing

    "The vet hadn't seen anything like it, it was bizarre.
    "He is a black lab so he is a fair size, but to swallow 13 is quite amazing."
    The balls were removed two weeks ago in a successful hour-long operation.
    Bag full
    Oscar is now on the road to making a full recovery on a special post-operation diet of watered-down food.
    He also has to wear a muzzle while out and about.
    Mr Morrison added: "He does get a bit frustrated now and again."
    Bob Hesketh, 40, principal vet at Vetrica in Rosyth, said he had never seen anything like it.
    He said: "It was like a magic trick. I opened him up and felt what I thought was two or three golf balls.
    "But they just kept coming until we had a bag full. "I think they must have been in there for several months, one was all black and the shell was swollen."

    He finds golf balls? If you could get him to stop eating them, that'd be awesome. You could save a ton of money.

    Sleepy night night land


    I think I've told this story on here before, but Josie (my black lab) had a corn cob in her stomach for over two months!!!

    My idiot friend gave it to her on July 4th and a couple few months later, she puked it up in the middle of the night!!

    My vet said they have found a lot of things in dog bellies that have been there for months, even years.
