A puppy has made a remarkable recovery after swallowing a toy windmill.

The young labrador was treated in Framlingham, Suffolk.

The vet who treated him said it was the "most bizarre" item he'd ever removed from an animal.

"He'd chewed the sails off and had somehow been able to swallow the remainder.

"He was OK - a little bit dribbly but otherwise fine. He didn't appear to be in much pain, just a little bit bewildered."

– Ben Garland, Framlingham Vets

The puppy had to undergo surgery to remove the toy - and was kept in the vets for two days before being reunited with his owners.
