They Ate What

Animals tend to swallow anything and a winner was chosen as my strangest radio graph image.

Animals will swallow just about anything they can get in their mouth. Don't believe it? The proof isonthe pages of this month's Veterinary Practice News.

Our annual radiograph contest, sponsored by Sound-Eklin of Carlsbad, Calif., was judged by Matt Wright, DVM, Dipl.ACVR, of Animal Insides, who has seen just about everything on an X-ray.

His verdict: First place to Florida veterinarian Amy McGinnes, DVM, of Black Creek Veterinary Hospital in Middleburg, Fla., whose canine patient, Hooch, ate 39 screws, nails and staples.

Veterinary Practice News thanks all readers who e-mailed radiographs. McGinness will receive a digital single-lens revlex camera courtesy of  Sound-Eklin. Runners-up Patricia N. Young, DVM, and Stephen H. Hart, DVM, each get a point-and-shoot camera.
