  • WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT 
  • Helen and James Hartley’s Labrador Poppy got her tongue stuck in a rubber toy
  • Dead tissue had to be removed and her tongue was stitched back together
  • The owners are now warning dog lovers about leaving pets unattended

A ‘traumatised’ couple are warning pet owners about leaving dogs unattended after their beloved Labrador’s tongue was nearly cut in half after it got stuck in a rubber ball toy.

Graphic images show Poppy with huge chunks of each side of her tongue missing – after the tissue turned necrotic due to restricted blood flow earlier this month.

Helen and James Hartley returned home from work earlier this month to discover Poppy had got her tongue stuck in the air hole of a rubber dog ball – and after wrestling it from her mouth, they noticed she was acting strangely.

They brought her into Foxhall Veterinary Clinic in Ruskington, Lincolnshire, where nurses spotted that the front half of Poppy’s tongue was very swollen and there was a red line showing where the ball had affected the blood flow.

Aside from the marking, her tongue was pink and warm to the touch and Poppy was happy to eat treats so was given medication to manage the swelling and booked in for daily check-ups
