MARS, Pa. (AP) — This hungry Labrador has some unusual taste buds.

A Pennsylvania veterinarian says she retrieved 62 hair bands, eight pairs of underwear and a bandage from the dog’s stomach during exploratory surgery.

The head technician at Good Shepherd’s Veterinary Hospital in Mars tells WTAE-TV that the black Lab named Tiki wasn’t responding to medicine for vomiting, diarrhea and a loss of appetite, and X-rays showed a mass in its stomach.

Last week’s surgery lasted two hours, and the vet and his technician were shocked at the items that were pulled out.

The dog’s owner, Sara Weiss, says Tiki once swallowed a plastic foam dart, but that passed through the dog’s system naturally.
