Veterinarian removes hunting arrow from dog's head

Animal Health SmartBrief | Sep 17, 2014

Veterinarian Jerry Demuth of Summit Veterinary Referral Center in Tacoma, Wash., removed a hunting arrow and shaft from the head of a lucky dog. Sampson, a husky mix, was shot through his left eye with the arrow while he and the other family dog were roaming the property near their owner's home. X-rays and a CT scan showed the arrow passed just below the brain, clipping some of the tissue, and embedded at the back of Sampson's head. KOMO-TV/KOMO-AM (Seattle) (09/16)
