Dog loses tongue in accident involving crate

Animal Health SmartBrief | Feb 24, 2015

Doc, a 7-year-old yellow Labrador, completely severed his tongue at its base in an accident with his crate. Dogs need their tongues to eat, drink and pant to stay cool, but Doc's owners aren't giving up on him. "It was the worst oral injury I've ever seen," said veterinarian Doris Durst, who cared for Doc after the trauma. However, he's already making good progress. "It's amazing how adaptable a dog can be," Dr. Durst said. La Crosse Tribune (Wis.) (02/23)
