A Chihuahua was subjected to an intensive surgery to extract 9 sewing needles from his digestive tract and body.
The 5-pound pup was picked up by members of Orange County Animal Care who have noticed he walked with a limp.
“His X-ray was astonishing…[The needles] had just left the stomach and were going through the liver, through the diaphragm and were headed into his chest,” mentioned Dr. Diane Craig, who operated on the dog.
“It’s hard to imagine a dog would voluntarily eat nine sewing needles.”
Yoda was rushed into surgery. While the team worked to take out the needles Craig made use of a magnet to extract one piercing the dog’s heart. At that moment, the heart stopped beating and Craig massaged Yoda’s heart for 15 minutes, without success, before making a decision to use a defibrillator.
Yoda astonishingly came back to life!
