A DOG needed emergency surgery after eating over 200 stones from the garden.

Buzz the English Springer Spaniel wolfed down hundreds of decorative stones which left ‘a melon sized lump’ in his stomach.

His owner raised the alarm after feeling the enormous bulge ‘grinding in her pets stomach’ and sprang into action.

Cumnock Chronicle:

She rushed him to Vets Now in East Ayrshire who performed life saving surgery by removing 215 stones - but were not shocked by Buzz’s actions.

They said although this was an extreme example it wasn’t ‘unusual’ for some dogs to eat whatever they can, including garden decor.

Now thankfully the cheeky pooch is on the mend and hopefully will be sticking to dog biscuits for a light snack.
