Actress Emmy Rossum had to make a trip to a veterinary surgery over the weekend (07-08Feb15) after her pet dog swallowed a plastic bag.

The Shameless star adopted the black Lhasa Apso mix named Pepper from a Los Angeles rescue centre in November (14), and the two-year-old became ill on Sunday (08Feb15) after ingesting bread and a plastic bag, so Rossum had to take her pooch to the vets.

The actress shared a picture of Pepper on Instagram.com and added, "The face of a girl who just ate two loaves of challah (Jewish) bread and a plastic bag. She has been puking for hours at the urgent doggie care... #FeelBetterPepper."

Rossum also has another adopted dog and a cat.
