Hmm, feet on ball, it sounds like Skyler the West Highland Terrier may have been felled by a notorious Cuz Ball. What’s more, his lawyer owner Jill Blue is considering suing.
“Rubber does not show up in x-rays. Who knew that?” Blue says.
Jill says Sky first got sick in March. He wouldn’t eat, was continuously throwing up and ended up with severe dehydration. But no one figured out what was wrong until July. For four months the feet that used to be attached to the ball sat inside Sky’s intestine.
“And that’s where we were. What is the cause? Won’t know until you cut them open to find out,” says Blue.
Surgery and all of the visits to the vet added up to $5,000 in bills.
See the Scottie News‘ previous reporting on the hazards of Cuz Balls. I’m also available to testify as an expert witness.
