I was in the office picking up heartworm meds and noticed a large bulletin. Doc asked me to tell everyone I know about this warning:
Please make sure your home/office automatic paper shredder is turned off and/or unplugged! He had an incident a couple of months ago where a dog got her tongue pulled in and shredded.
Simple curiosity and a few licks was all it took. The dog had to be put to sleep.
My parents have one, first thing I do now is check and pull the plug when we go to visit. Since I told them about this, its always unplugged, but I check anyway.
One of those things you might not think about, if it saves one injury, it was worth the typing.
