Meet Boris

Boris is a beautiful British Shorthair that was seen by our medic Federica after ingestion of a toy on the day of his birthday.

The foreign body was visualised using ultrasonography in the stomach near to the pylorus. It was successfully retrieved under general anaesthetic endoscopically using a basket by one of the referral nurses. This was such a relief as if the toy remained was going to pass into the intestines which would have caused an obstruction, that would have required exploratory laparotomy to remove it.

If you have a case that you would like to refer to us, please visit the ‘Refer a case’ section of our website.
