Hopefully you don't have this dog toy shown on this blog. I don't have a dog, but i cannot imagine this. It sounds terrible. Tongues are so sensitive. I once got a sliver in mine from a popsicle stick and i thought i was going to die. I also don't know how much money i would spend to heal the little guy. I know that sounds bad, but i just don't have $5,000 to spend on healing an animal's tongue. When do you say enough? It is a tough question. Poor dog.
