A 2 years old Labrador dog was coming with history of ingestion of a new covered shaving blade immediately falling with owner’s hand during his shaving. Owner came to clinics after one day of the incident but any food was not given in that period, kept only on water. There were no any clinical signs observed in that period. Dog was normal. Lateral radiography was taken which revealed radio-opaque shaving blade in the stomach area. Solid food was not given after ingestion of shaving till surgical intervention. Surgical correction was planned to remove the shaving blade from the stomach next day. General anaesthesia was used and shaving blade was removed.
