A Gut Feeling
There can be many causes of a sore tummy with pets. Max, a seven year-old German Short-Haired Pointer presented to The Ark Vet with a sore tummy and vomiting. We took radiographs, that showed us that Max had something in his bowel that was not budging. After a chat with Max’s owners, it was revealed that Max loves to grab peaches off the kitchen table, and eat them!
