Vet Diary - Surprise Surprise!

We are constantly surprised by the sights we see here at the rescue centre. When the tiny terrier was presented for routine spay, our vet felt there was something not quite right. The bladder seemed harder than normal and further investigations were obviously required. A sterile needle was inserted, and the tip could be felt grating against material with the consistency of stone! Bladder stones are not uncommon in older dogs, but the size of this one was really something worth seeing!

The little girl must be so much more comfortable now that this large stone has been removed!

The poor dog herself only weighed 2.95kg, and the stone measured over 3cm! Thankfully the Animal Welfare Team can deal with such issues on site, and she is so far making a good recovery
