When dog Bobo was rushed to our animal hospital in a desperate state, his owner feared the worst.
The nine-year-old Weimaraner was in a great deal of pain, had been sick multiple times and was extremely dehydrated. Worryingly, Bobo had also stopped eating.
“Bobo was very ill and we had to tell them the devastating news that we were really very worried about him,” said Tracy Nicholson, a Veterinary Nurse at our Grimsby animal hospital.
“We gave him immediate care, with pain relief and fluids, and ran early tests. The poor boy cried out in pain when vets examined his abdomen, so we knew we needed to investigate further.”
We gave Bobo a general anaesthetic so we could carry out tests without causing him any further stress.
