There’s nothing worse than an animal in pain, especially when that pain is inflicted by something that’s supposed to bring your pet joy—his toy.
Chai, a 10-year-old Lab mix, was playing with a Four Paws pimple ball with bell, when his tongue got stuck in the hole in the ball. He had to be taken to the vet to have the ball removed because his tongue was so swollen. Eventually his tongue had to be amputated, making it very difficult for him to eat and drink.
Chai’s parent documented the poor dog’s story on a blog. (Warning, there are some graphic photos). You can watch videos of Chai adjusting to eating and drinking without a tongue as well as find out more information about boycotting the company.
