Sometimes our pets have palates that are too adventurous for their own good. In March, a veterinary team used forceps and their bare hands to save a python’s life. The snake swallowed something it shouldn’t have, and her rescuers were determined to remove it. It turned out to be a large beach towel. And Veterinary Practice News publishes an annual list of things that pets have eaten, but shouldn’t have. They include spoons, toys, money, candles and a wristwatch.
