One Friday afternoon, a general practice some miles away had a problem:
Ozzy, a very likeable little Shih Tzu, scavenged a bone out on a walk with his owner and it got stuck in his oesophagus. It was there for four days and he hadn’t been able to eat or drink in that time. The client had financial issues and his own vets had not been able to get the bone out. The owner was on the point of putting him to sleep but decided at the last minute to bring him over to us at West Midland Referrals and let us have a go at getting it out.
Koda, a Northern Inuit male dog, decided to try eating a fishing hook – it didn’t get far- just part way down the oesophagus.
Chris joined our team in 2019 in Burton-Upon-Trent, and we’ve been pretty impressed with his skills with an endoscope! He has removed a number of grass seeds from secondary and tertiary bronchi. These cases usually present with chronic coughs and sometimes signs of grumbling infection and fever.
