This Pet Poison Alert from the ASPCA’s weekly e-mail newsletter:
"Imagine this scenario: a young boxer pup gets into a tube of polyurethane glue, accidentally left out when his owners were doing home repairs. By the next morning the pup is vomiting, and his abdomen is swollen and tender. A visit to the veterinarian reveals that the expanding adhesive did just that — expand — in the dog’s stomach, turning into a hard, solidified mass requiring emergency surgery.
"But what’s really astounding? The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center is seeing more and more cases just like this one."
