Did you ever hear the one about the dog who swallowed 14 quarters? Or what about the cat who just couldn’t resist her owner’s toy lizard’s foot?
Veterinary professionals are no strangers to interesting cases in the clinic. Indeed, the myriad of patient species alone is enough to create a chaotic caseload! Perhaps the more interesting (and amusing) bit of the practice, though, are what X-rays reveal outside fractures—ingested objects, such as toys, rocks, pennies, and even pieces of jewellery! Some are so odd you must see it to believe it.
We invite you enter the inaugural Pets Eat the Darndest Things X-ray contest to share those mind-boggling, absurd radiographs with Veterinary Practice News Canada and the veterinary community. One winner will be decided by our panel of veterinarians and will receive a $500 Amazon.ca gift card from our contest sponsor, Nuon Imaging.
How to enter:
- Go to VeterinaryPracticeNews.ca/xraycontest and log in or register.
- Upload high-resolution images—large files reproduce best—and fill in your name, clinic name and address, telephone number, and a short explanation of the case, including the outcome.
- If available, include images of the patient and the recovered item(s).
The winner and honourable mentions will be unveiled in the December issue of Veterinary Practice News Canada. Click here to access the full contest rules.
The submission deadline is Sept. 24, 2023.
