Poor Rio came in to see us on Saturday feeling very sorry for herself. She had been vomiting and passing diarrhoea, and it was no wonder she was feeling out of sorts as unbelievably, Rio had chewed up and eaten a camp bed mattress! X rays confirmed a foreign body compacted in her stomach, and when we carried out emergency surgery on Saturday afternoon we removed an impressive amount of material. This is Rio this morning, in to see us to check she is recovering well. We’re delighted to report she’s doing great. And hopefully her mishap will have put her off inedible snacks for life!
