Stone-eating spaniel makes full recovery

A DOG has made an amazing recovery after munching his way through 2lb of stones.

Springer spaniel Samson, from Musselburgh, East Lothian, was admitted to the PDSA pet hospital in Edinburgh by his concerned owner who noticed he had lost his appetite and appeared bloated.

Cheryl Douglas, 36, thought her pet might have been suffering from a stomach bug.

But she was shocked to learn from the vet that Samson had swallowed 2lb of chipped stones from the garden.

She said: "Quite how Samson physically managed to swallow so many stones is a real mystery.

"He does love to play in the garden and obviously took a liking to them.

"We have now removed the chipped stones from the garden to avoid any further accidents."
