Boyd had a decreased appetite, was vomiting, and had abdominal pain, so his owner brought him into Golden Paws Animal Hospital last night. Golden Paws took an X-ray and found a possible bowel obstruction, so they referred Boyd to us for surgery. Our surgeon looked at the X-rays and decided a foreign body surgery would be necessary to remove the obstruction. During the surgery, Dr. Moorer found a small towel in Boyd’s small intestine that he had ingested. The surgery went well and now he’s being monitored while he’s recovering.
Boyd’s stomach has been a little upset since surgery last night, so one of our CVTs, Katie, has been giving him a little extra love and care while she’s working today.
