Chonky labrador eats entire dog lead during 15 minute car journey
He had to be rushed to the vets to get his stomach pumped...
This is Max the labrador. He also happens to be quite greedy. This hasn't ended well for him.
Max was on a 15 car journey and decided he was a little bit peckish, so proceeded to eat his entire lead which resulted in him paying a visit to the vets where he had his stomach pumped.
In fact, the seven-year-old labrador has had previous health issues and was actually on his way to a hydrotherapy session before his owner spotted the missing lead and made a swift diversion to the vets.
Thankfully, the lead was retrieved alright and it turns out Max had digested them as individual 5cm strips, which was helpful.
His owner said: ‘Max was a bit queasy when we got him home and it took three of us to get him out of the car, but, thankfully he was soon back to his old self.
"It’s still hard to believe what he did. We take no chances now and have both dogs off their leads when they get in the car.’
