I have watched this several times now, and it is just amazing.

Incredible what dogs will eat! This surgery is unbelievable. I was surprised, though, that there was no damage to the lining of the stomach from whatever chemicals are in Gorilla Glue.

Thanks for posting this video! I have only read about performing surgery to remove gorilla glue. The actual procedure is more complicated than a simple gastrotomy as described in current references. This video pointed the problems a surgeon may encounter and gave practical solutions to them. I feel confident performing this surgery after having seen this video!
