⚠️ CAUTION GRAPHIC IMAGES ⚠️
"Foreign body" is a term used to describe a foreign object that should not be in your pet - aka a grass seed, stick, bone, metal, or clothing/materials.
When ingested, these items don't easily pass through the digestive system and are at risk of getting stuck and causing a blockage.
In sweet Hudson's case, a blanket he ate got stuck in his small intestine 😔 Surgical intervention is the only way to remove it - this surgery is called an "Exploratory laparotomy"
As you can see in the photos below; Poor Hudson had very inflamed intestines, and our surgeons are removing material from several small incisions.
