Paging Dr. Leroy Brown. 

Paging Dr. Leroy Brown. 

We have an emergency in Room 101. 

Dr. Leroy Brown reporting for surgery.

dog dressed as surgeon Please give me a brief history of the patient.


A 5-year-old intact male who is otherwise healthy but has a past history of eating inedible items. 

Owner woke up to the sound of him vomiting up rocks on the floor. 

Owner counted 25 rocks and fears there may be more. 

X-rays of the abdomen prove that assumption to be true. 

The patient is prepped and ready for you to perform exploratory surgery. 

Alright, let’s have a look at this.

What is it with dogs and eating rocks these days?

How could a rock actually taste good?

Nurse Blanche,

I’m going to need some more suction, a bag for all these rocks and a peanut butter cookie.

Yep. These intestines are filled with rocks.

They appear to be limestone rocks.

Let’s have a closer look

It seems like this patient may have eaten some type of stuffing also.

Perhaps not only is he a rock eater but also a dog toy de-stuffer.

Ugh. This stomach is a mess.


Moving on…….

Let’s get these rocks removed from the patient and close him up because my internal clock is telling me that it’s time for a pee break and a cookie.

Thank you all for joining me today in the operating room.

***No dogs were harmed in the making of this Halloween post but one stuffed animal did sacrifice some stuffing and a small incision in the upper abdomen.
