Pets eat the most puzzling things that land them in the vet’s office: shoes, coins, socks, teddy bears, watches, rubber ducks, rocks, lightbulbs, kitchen utensils, pendants, golf balls, and more. If the rads weren’t there to prove this stuff actually happens, the tales would be hard to believe. That’s why Veterinary Practice News is asking the veterinary community to submit radiographs to the 2018 They Ate What?! X-ray contest that show how truth is often stranger than fiction when it comes to the contents of some pets’ stomachs.
The winner, selected by a panel of veterinarians and Veterinary Practice News editors, will receive $500 and a one-year subscription to Web PACS, a Picture Archiving Communications System valued at $2,400, from contest prize sponsor, IDEXX Laboratories Inc.
How to enter:
- Go to VeterinaryPracticeNews.com/xraycontest and log in or register to enter.
- Upload high-resolution images—large files reproduce best—and fill in your name, clinic name and address, telephone number, and a short explanation of the case, including the outcome.
- If available, include images of the patient and the recovered item(s).
The submission deadline is July 23. The winner and honorable mentions will be unveiled in the October issue of Veterinary Practice News.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER. Contest is open to legal residents of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia, age 18 or older who are licensed veterinary professionals. Entries must be received between 12:00:01 AM ET on 5/23/2018 and 11:59:59 PM ET on 7/23/2018. See Official Rules at VeterinaryPracticeNews.com/xraycontestrules. Void where prohibited by law.
