First ER Surgery of the Year!

Things around here are never dull. We have already had our first Emergency Surgery 2019 and it was for a bowel obstruction. The good news is that he didn't eat a phone... but a toy that is not as impressive on film. It appears to be s toy he came to us with... WE were lucky in that the foster was alerted us to some odd behavior which we recognized as a possible obstruction ... X-rays at the emergency vet confirmed and off to surgery we went. Claus is recovering so well and is going to be completely fine in no time. Fortunately our Emergency Fund allowed us to pay for his surgery but to donate to replenish our fund :)

What is a bowel obstruction?
A bowel obstruction, also known as a gastrointestinal blockage, is a complete or partial blockage that prevents solids or liquids from passing through the gastrointestinal tract. This blockage can also decrease blood flow to the bowels, causing deterioration and absorption of toxic contents. Foreign objects can also cause the intestines to bunch into each other like a telescope.
