20 Year Old Fish Saved After 30 Minute Surgery.


One evening when a family found a weird little lump on their 20 year old fish, they took it to the vet immediately. It was later found that bob (the goldfish) had a tumor and must be operated upon. The vet, Dr Faye Bethell saved the day by removing the tumor through surgery in about 20 30 minutes time. “He is recovering well” Dr Faye commented Bob’s owners were really pleased because the goldfish is older than their children and he’s very much considered part of the family.”

Dr Faye used a small heart rate monitor, the fish was fed anesthetics and the operation was carried out by using micro-surgical equipment. “It’s pretty complicated because everything is so small.” She added: “This one was the oldest fish we’ve operated on… Bob’s now back home and enjoying swimming properly for the first time in weeks.”

Dr Faye stressed on the fact that pets can and are living longer. The vet also added that’s its good to find people who want to keep their pets healthy and alive and do whatever they can to help
