Faye Removes a Hand Sized Bladder Stone.

Poor Ossie the 90 year old Tortoise came in to see us when she was feeling under the weather following hibernation. X-rays, ultrasound scans and blood tests showed she had a large bladder stone and lots of eggs sitting in her abdomen causing her problems. We removed the offending bladder stone and spayed her at the same time to stop her having problems laying eggs next year.

The Constipated Goldfish -

A concerned owner brought in a pet goldfish which was unable to pass faeces due to a large tumour blocking the area. We anaesthetised the fish and carefully removed the offending lump. The area was closed using special tissue glue rather than stitches. The goldfish recovered well and is now back home enjoying being able to lead a normal life!

Microchip Drive and Tortoise Day

Due to the high number of cats being brought in as strays or invovled in accidents with no identification to help us contact worried owners, Toll Barn Vets teamed up with RSPCA East Norfolk to offer free of charge microchips for cats during April 2015.  Our annual Tortoise Day also featured in the article below!
