Happy Mother’s Day to everyone! Dr. Ahalt and his family are at the hospital today to discharge Maggie so she can go home and be with her mum and family! Maggie counter surfed and ate a cupcake, complete with reusable silicone cupcake wrapper that caused a blockage and required surgery to remove - if you own a dog that likes to cruise for food, you might want to keep a close eye on your cupcakes before they go rogue or go back to paper wrappers, which are less likely to caused a blockage if eaten. Happy Mother’s Day!
