Meet Sherlock, a beautiful 8 week old Labrador puppy that recently stayed in our Long Eaton hospital. The owners had only had him three days when he started vomiting and brought up a whole collar!! John Oleshko examined him and could feel something abnormal when palpating his abdomen.
X-rays were then taken and showed what looked like another collar within his intestines. As it has managed to pass this far it was decided we would monitor him and give treatment to try and lubricate it’s passage. With some assistance from another vet Katy; he was able to pass another entire collar completely intact!
Sherlock is doing well and has recently gone home to settle with his new family for Christmas!
We are having some essential maintenance work completed at the Long Eaton Hospital which means we will not have use of the prep area and theatres over the forthcoming weekend
Due to the layout of our building it makes it hard to distance effectively within our consulting rooms
No large mid-line incision, only two small incisions for the camera and equipment port!
