Dr. Chris Rispoli has been a practicing veterinarian since 1997, but nothing could prepare him for what he calls his “most fascinating and exciting surgery.”
The Edmond, Oklahoma, veterinarian was brought in after parents of a newborn pieced together the mystery of missing pacifiers.
It started with a grandmother witnessing the pup jump onto a counter and take a pacifier. The dog’s eating slowed, and eventually it vomited up a pacifier. That’s when the parents took the dog in for an X-ray.
What the team initially believed was seven to nine pacifiers ended up being more than double that.

According to the report, the dog is doing just fine and is heading home.
