Scottish Dog has 13 golf balls surgically removed

Not a Scottish Terrier but still:

A dog had to have 13 golf balls removed from his stomach after eating them on walks near a golf course.

Oscar, a five-year-old black Labrador, was taken to the vet after his owner noticed a rattling noise coming from his pet.

The vet, Bob Hesketh, was stunned: “When I went into his stomach I was expecting one or two balls, but they just kept coming.” One of the balls had been in Oscar’s stomach so long, it had turned black.

Oscar’s owner, Chris Morrison, takes the dog for regular walks near Pitreavie golf course in Dunfermline, Fife. Oscar is thought to have swallowed the balls over a period of months.

  1. My only question is, did the owner not notice his dog eating the golf balls and, if he did notice, did he not wonder where they ended up?

  2. I asked my vet once about objects removed from the stomachs of dogs Here is a partial list: panty hose, underwear, shredded tennis balls, shoe parts, pens, plastic bags, coins, car seat fabric, sanitary pads, and once, a twelve inch knife.
    But I think this Lab may have outdone even the knife.
