Quinlan’s Very Odd Operation
By Imogene Ewen | Dated February 1, 2021
Quinlan is a very brave Labrador with a fetish for socks. Since he was a pup, Quinlan has enjoyed snacking on socks, with no consequence. Unfortunately, at the age of 11.5 years, his luck ran out. Quinlan presented to Gordon Vet very unwell. He had been vomiting and off his food for a few days. An abdominal ultrasound revealed an obstruction in his stomach so we admitted him straight to surgery. Quinlan’s stomach was markedly distended and had evidence of perforation. This is life threatening, so he is very lucky! Quinlan had two odd socks removed from his stomach. Much to his owner’s dismay Quinlan did not even eat a pair of socks! He had a fabulous recovery and was discharged from hospital the following day.
