Some of us never know what our dogs will try to eat next. Hopefully, you haven’t experienced the fear of knowing your dog ate something they shouldn’t coupled with the expense of making sure they get the veterinary care they need. The veterinary community breaks foreign bodies into two categories: linear foreign bodies and non-linear foreign bodies. Here are the most common foreign bodies according to a study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine:

Top 5 Linear Foreign Bodies

  • Cloth
  • Carpet
  • String
  • Sock
  • Unknown Object

Top 5 Non-Linear Foreign Bodies

  • Corncob
  • Rubber Object
  • Unknown Object
  • Piece of Plastic
  • Tennis Ball or Rock
