APET owner warned oth­ers to be vig­i­lant dur­ing bar­be­cues, af­ter their dog needed stom­ach surgery to re­move a ke­bab skewer.

Ber­tie, a wire-haired fox ter­rier, had swal­lowed a 10cm stick, but it was not found un­til 10 days later.

It was only when vets op­er­ated on him when his owner no­ticed his swollen stom­ach that they found the skewer.
