Dog has Strange bodies in oral cavity

If your dog suddenly moves his head from one side to another without a visible cause, and rubs desperately the snout with his legs, he could have a strange body in the mouth. But you can also think about intoxication. In most cases you can extract the strange object without help.

Strange bodies in the auditory channel: When the dog has a straw located in the auditory channel, symptoms are the same as a brain stroke. You must read the signs correctly to go to the vet quickly and relieve your dog from his pains.
