Family Did Everything To Save Their Favorite Pet From Sleeping Forever (8 pics)

Posted in Animals   10 Feb 2017   / 2922 views

When a family spotted a lump on their 20-year-old goldfish’s fin, they took it to Dr Faye Bethell

The well-known doctor saved the day by performing a 30 minute surgery on Bob the fish that cost $250

“The option was to remove the lump or put him to sleep and now he is doing brilliantly”

“Bob’s owners were really pleased because…  he’s very much considered part of the family”

The vet fed the fish anaesthetics and used a miniature heart-rate monitor and micro-surgical equipment

“It’s pretty complicated because everything is so small”

“Bob’s now back home and enjoying swimming properly for the first time in weeks”

“We are definitely seeing pets living longer… It’s really nice when you get an owner who wants to save them”
