Dog in danger after accidentally swallowing needle and thread

Some dogs are able to eat anything they see lying around, so it is important to watch them. In Gainsborough, a town in Lincolnshire, England, a dog swallowed a needle and thread, much to the chagrin of its owner.

As a precaution, she took him to a veterinary clinic. Unfortunately, an x-ray confirmed his fears: the needle and thread ended up in the stomach of his four-legged companion.
