Dog has lucky escape after getting six-inch stick stuck in his eye

Diesel the sheepdog was out for a walk in a wood when he ran into the six-inch stick. His horrified owner Alan Jackson, from Carnwath in Lanarkshire, took boisterous Diesel to vet Edy Alderson, who was able to pull it straight out.

Edy, of the Clyde Vet Group, said: “I had never seen anything like it. He was put under a general anaesthetic and I very gently started pulling with my thumb and forefinger. The stick just kept coming.

“If there had been any friction, I would have stopped. After he came round from the anaesthetic, he got down off the table without a care.” Edy said if the stick had gone in a fraction further, it would have punctured Diesel’s brain and he would have been killed.

She added: “We need to stress you must never just pull a stick out of your own dog.” Owner Alan, 53, said: “He’s a great character and is none the worse for his ordeal.”
