Bumble is your typical happy, healthy, and energetic 9 month old cat. While everyone was enjoying their delicious holiday dinners and opening presents over the holidays, Bumble suddenly became very ill and weak.
After severe vomiting and continued weakness, Bumble was brought to her primary veterinarian who suggested that Bumble undergo immediate exploratory surgery of her inner stomach. Bumble’s owner, being a human doctor himself, was skeptical of such an invasive surgery and opted for a Second Opinion at Animal Health Center.
Within a short time of admission and diagnostics at our hospital, it was decided that Bumble would undergo endogastroscopy, a non-invasive type of exploration in which special fiber optic fibers are used to enter the stomach through the mouth. These fibers have small arms which can pull things out of the stomach cavity with minimal complication or long-term effects.
And what did we find in Bumble’s stomach? A tightly wound ball of hair ties, ribbons, and Christmas tree decorative string!
You see, that is just another reason why Animal Health Center is truly the best veterinary center for your pet. The advantages of having doctors on staff that are experienced with minimally and non-invasive procedures, ensure that your pet has the quickest and healthiest recovery with no long term complications.
We are proud to say that Bumble is back to her spunky self without a single hair out of place. From now on let’s hope she snacks on catnip instead of string!
