Enter Veterinary Practice News’ 2019 They Ate What?! X-ray Contest

You’ve got to be kidding me?!

Last year’s winner, Mojo Wright, a two-year-old English bulldog, presented with vomiting and inappetence. An X-ray showed a foreign body, which turned out to be a boot from a Kristoff doll from the movie, Frozen.

Did you ever hear the one about the dog who swallowed 14 quarters? Or what about the cat who just couldn’t resist her owner’s toy lizard’s foot? Pets eat the darndest things, so much so, we are still amazed at what veterinarians find on their X-rays, even after all these years of running our They Ate What?! X-ray contest. Which brings us to our annual call for those hard-to-believe radiographs. Share your most outrageous X-rays with Veterinary Practice News and the veterinary community. Selected by a panel of veterinarians, the winner will receive a $500 VISA gift card from contest prize sponsor, Trupanion.

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 19.

The winner and honorable mentions will be unveiled in the October issue of Veterinary Practice News.
