Closing date Monday 30th April 2012. Eyes bigger than belly A late night trip to the vets was in order for Harvey a South Devon Labrador. Just before bed he was having his routine medication, when he was a little bit too keen and ate the spoon it was on as well! His concerned owner rushed him down to South Moor Vets in Kingsbridge, Devon. A trip to X-ray then followed. The teaspoon could be clearly seen on the X-rays. He was taken to theatre that night as from the position and size of the spoon there was concern that further issues could ensue. He has since made a full recovery, he no longer gets his medication off of a spoon, and strangely his owner didn’t want the spoon back after the surgery.
