this article about a dangerous dog toy, It's a ball that dogs get their tongue stuck in when it breaks open.Any of you folks with dogs should read |
It sounds to me like the vets are just pulling the dog's tongues out against the vacuum and the tongues are getting severely damaged in the process. If your dog's tongue gets stuck, you might consider carefully making a hole in the ball to relieve the vacuum and then gently removing the ball from the dog's tongue. If it's in pain or frightened, the dog will still need to be sedated first, but the damage will be considerably less if the ball is punctured before it is separated from the dog's tongue.
But the best decision would be not to let your dog play with the toy.
