Huntersville, North Carolina
Kletus came into UrgentVet Pet Clinic in Huntersville, North Carolina feeling constipated. His pet parents were worried so they thought it would be a good idea to get him checked out.
We took some x-rays and quickly discovered the problem. Kletus ate a screw! The doctor quickly induced vomiting and out came the screw. Afterward, we gave him some additional fluids and medication to feel better. We followed up and he’s back to normal.
Do you see in the photo here where Kletus “screwed up”?
Meet Ivy. This adorable kitten came to Urgent Vet Huntersville because she was carrying an unwanted passenger! We found and removed a cuterebra (Bot Fly), from her.
These insects borrow, live and grow inside of the host’s skin. Now that the Bot Fly is gone, we anticipate Ivy will be feeling better soon.
