Most of us know that our big happy dumdum labradors only have two brain cells in their heads. Labradors are the sweetest, most gentle pets you could ever own, BUT…. apparently they like to lick paper shredders. And, apparently, this doesn’t work out so well for them. Fortunately, their tongues heal just fine whether or not you suture them back together or leave all the little fringes hanging. One of my goals in my veterinary career is to coin a term. To my knowledge this hasn’t been done yet with this disease so I’m going to call this disease “Shredder Tongue.” Now, I have achieved my goal. More importantly, you know not to let your lab make out with a paper shredder.
