An Angel for an Angel
Chad (of Vossen Aquatics) brought the distressed Scribbled Angelfish to Lexington Pet Clinic (Minnesota). Veterinarian Dr. Kizer performed the surgery after the X-ray identified a rock lodged in the angelfish's intestine. The procedure took approximately an hour in which the fish was out of water and anesthetized.
Chad pitched in by assisting with the anesthesia and administering oxygen to his fish. Not surprisingly, Chad found his hands-on participation "definitely a great experience."
We're happy to report the angelfish made a full recovery and is doing well.
The whole surgery cost $500 to save a fish that usually retails for less.
Amazing owner. Amazing friend. Amazing vet.
Simply amazing story!
