Resilient French Bulldog Gobbles Up 11 Rubber Ducks

Thank goodness the vet wasn’t a quack.

A dog owner in China was left in disbelief after doctors discovered her beloved French bulldog had swallowed a staggering 11 rubber duckies – and so had to be rushed to an emergency operation, reported Asia Wire.

Ms Liu, as she was named in local Shanghai media, first noticed something was wrong when her red duck, apparently one of many ducks in her collection, went missing.

She said she often receives toy ducks as gifts when buying drinks.

Quickly doubtful of her dog, she hoisted the animal to the doctor, without waiting.

The dog’s owner suspected the pup had eaten a rubber duck after one of the many ducks went missing.

But she was in shock when doctors took an X-ray of the dog’s stomach, locating at least five toys from the image.

Liu’s dog was then rushed to surgery, where vets managed to remove six additional ducks, 11 of which were eaten in all.

Ingesting rubber can be extremely dangerous for dogs, whether it’s rubber duckies like this poor pup or a simple rubber toy purchased from a pet store, according to Pet Educate.

In some cases, the rubber won’t do anything to your dog, but more often than not, it can cause choking or a blockage in the digestive tract, the outlet notes.

Dogs cannot digest rubber, so if you suspect your dog has ingested the material, you should contact your veterinarian as soon as possible, according to Fluent Woof.

Signs that your dog has trinkets include restlessness, panting, choking, and a bloated belly.

Doctors told Liu her dog was lucky to be alive after the ordeal – but it looks like the Frenchie is already past that. On Chinese social media platform Douyin, Liu posted a video of herself scolding the dog, which appeared to ignore her as it took a nap at her human’s feet.
