Foxtail removal

Look what came out of Chimera's nose today!

A big honkin' foxtail! He was put under anesthesia and the doctor fished it out with her tiniest tools. After he woke up, he was loudly barking and crying in his kennel, so one of the techs let him run around a back office and also carried him around like a baby.

What a spoiled dog.


  1. Ouch!! Poor thing. Thank goodness they got it though and it didn't do any damage.

    We just saw a dog today who had to have surgery to remove a foxtail that went in through the top of his foot and was trying to travel up to his leg.

    1. Yikes! That is scary. Foxtails are everywhere around here, especially along the trails I hike when doing dog walking. There's no way for me to avoid them.
