Pet of the Month February 2014

 

Harvey is our Pet of the Month

 

Harvey

 

Harvey Stringfellow is a fit and healthy 6 year old Border Collie. He is very active and competes regularly in Fly Ball competitions but recently he was a little under the weather. His owner became very concerned and when he had vomited several times she booked an emergency appointment. Our vet shared the owners concern and admitted Harvey into our care for further urgent investigation. An X-ray was taken of Harvey’s abdomen and the outcome was suggestive of a foreign body in his stomach. An emergency exploratory laparotomy was performed. An unidentified foreign body was removed from the small intestines and stomach. We are unable to confirm what Harvey had eaten and as he has refused to reveal what the culprit was we will have to be satisfied that it will not cause him any more trouble.
