Two months ago a 10 year old lab, Chai, was playing with a red rubber ball. The ball had a hole in it and his tongue got stuck in the hole. There was no second hole in the ball to release pressue and the ball became a vacumm. Long story short, Chai lost his tongue and after 2 months is still trying to recover. The story is tough to read, the one vet image almost impossible to view, and the videos even harder.
If you have a dog and buy them red rubber balls as toys I highly recommend that you boycott the balls from Four Paws until they not only give retribution to the numerous folks who’s beloved dogs have suffered because of a design flaw. If you find rubber balls with the same design flaw I hope you boycott them too.
There is an email address and pre-written letter that you can send to Four Paws telling them of your boycott. I did this and added that I have a well-read blog and am passing this information around to everyone I can. HIt them where it hurts, their wallets.
