Fendi the Shih Tzu looks guilty after eating dad's eyeglasses!

Glass Makes for a Scary Snack!

Fendi, a black and white one-year-old Shih Tzu wagged her tail and attempted to climb on Doc Truli’s shoulder.  Fendi’s first visit to Doc Truli was off to a good start.

“What ‘re we in for today?”

“Well, Doc, we caught her on our bed last night, chewing my eyeglasses into smithereens,” said Fendi’s dad.


“We found her with pieces of glass littered all around her, and a piece of glass in her mouth. Then this morning, Fendi had a small amount of fresh red blood in her stool,” dad continued.

Fendi wagged her tail when she heard her name.

Her physical examination was normal. No more stool problems. No cuts in her mouth. Soft, nonpainful abdomen. No fever, normal vital signs.

“Unfortunately, glass will not show on X-Rays. Fendi shows no evidence of discomfort, or a problem, so watch for vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, or any change in her appetite or behavior,” said Doc Truli.

“By the way, how did you hear about the animal hospital?”

Fendi’s dad said,”Your Yellow Page ad was large and easy to see, especially because I was nearly blind without my glasses!”
