A foreign object was extracted from Bo, a very handsome 5-year-old Mastiff's stomach. The foreign object was a silicone slow feeder for pets. Our talented technical staff & brilliant Dr. Swisher performed a gastrotomy to be able to retrieve the pieces of silicone. Bo is now back to being his young, goofy self nine days after this procedure. Owners stated that he simply reverted to his laid-back, fun-loving nature. At Meadow Branch Animal Hospital, we work hard to give each patient the best treatment possible. Bo’s remarkable recovery and his happy family have brought the staff much joy. Important fact to remember: Just because it's not edible, does not mean it’s not ingestible.
