Here’s a frightening claim from a customer that thankfully had a happy ending: A Miniature Dachshund ripped open a bag of disposable razors, chewed on one and ingested the metal blade, plus the plastic surrounding it.

She was taken to a veterinarian, who spotted the razor blade in an X-ray. The dog was given medications to help the blade pass, which happened quickly without causing any problems.

Luckily, the dog didn’t need surgery, and the treatment costs were relatively minor. Nonetheless, ASPCA Pet Health Insurance was there to help and reimbursed the customer more than $100. We’re so glad his dog is OK!
