EDMOND, Okla. (KFOR) — A local veterinarian recently shared the story about when he removed 21 pacifiers from a dog's stomach.

A veterinarian for Gentle Care Animal Hospital in Edmond said he had to share the story because "this was the most fascinating and exciting surgery I have ever done..."

A couple recently had a baby and were wondering what was happening to all of their child's pacifiers.

One day, the child's grandmother saw the dog, Dovey, jump up on the counter and take off with one.

The couple told the veterinarian that Dovey had slowed down her eating and had been vomiting a little phlegm for a few days, but other than that, they said the dog seemed fine and that they hadn't noticed any other changes.

One day, when Dovey vomited up a pacifier, the couple decided it was time to take the dog in for an X-ray, according to Gentle Care Animal Hospital's Facebook post.

Judging from the X-ray, the local veterinarian believed there were between seven to nine pacifiers in the dog's stomach.

However, during surgery, the veterinarian found 21 pacifiers in the dog's stomach!
