Meet Tonka

Meet Tonka, he’s a Bulldog that likes to eat things he shouldn’t! Tonka came in to see us recently as he was feeling unwell, vomiting and not passing faeces. We performed some xray's which showed some suspicious things in his abdomen and evidence of a blockage.

Tonka had emergency surgery, and we soon discovered an assortment of things in his stomach - including a few puzzle pieces! These foreign bodies caused a blockage in his stomach, stopping food from passing through. Tonka is now recovering post surgery and doing well, and hopefully he’ll stay away from eating things he shouldn’t!
