photo of dog that ate wood

“I left Zeke alone, and he apparently heard something on the other side of the bedroom door. So he tried chewing through that door! He's 10 years old, and he has never done something like this before. It was not a solid wood door. When I got home, I found the first side had a large hole, and Zeke was working his way through to the other. He had wood chips and splinters on his head, in the skin of his muzzle, and on his mouth, tongue and feet. I was afraid that he had swallowed a large wood piece so I rushed him to the veterinarian. The vet removed all of the splinters and gave him some medication for the pain. I’m definitely a firm advocate of pet insurance, and I recommend ASPCA Pet Health Insurance to others.” – Tessa K., Charleston, WV
