The complete hoax as it is being shared on Facebook
Dog jaws locked after eating dominos leaflet hoax
I came across this post today. In the safety of pets, please review your marketing materials. To my friends who have dogs please be aware of this just seen this post on another site ***WARNING*** Today through my letterbox came a dominoes leaflet which my dog decided to rip up. About 5-10 minutes later he was lying on the floor with a foaming mouth and shaking so took him to the vets and they predicted that it was a seizure and his jaw was locked together for 5 hours. We had loads of tests taken which all came back clear so we didn't really understand what was wrong. We looked it up online and came across a story about how glossy paper ended up gluing a dogs mouth shut. We have now discovered that any glossy paper reacts with dog saliva forms a gluey, paste that will lock a dogs jaw together and this is what happened to our Alf. Please share and be careful of this with any animal that you have and keep them away from any junk mail and even letters to prevent this from happening to your pets
Origin of the hoax
It comes from a story in 2008 where even the vet said it is very rare and would be rare for it to happen again. most likely a mixture of whatever the dog ate
