All creatures great & small | Co. Tyrone vet removes tumour from goldfish
Poor Thor the goldfish developed a tumour on his face that was affecting his vision and ability to swim and feed, so the talented team at Corey & O’Hare Vets in Omagh decided to admit him for surgery today.
Using a soluble anaesthesis through his water, the fantastic nurses maintained his anaesthetia by moving oxygenated water over his gills whilst we performed this intricate surgery.
Lucky for Thor, the op was a success and he lives to swim another day!
The team thanked Gary from Happy Pets for providing Thor with a recovery tank to keep his wound clean and infection free!
