Nacho, a 1-year-old cat, had stopped eating and had started vomiting.  He had vomited up a hair tie, and so everyone suspected that he had eaten something he shouldn’t.  Radiographs had shown that there was an obstruction in the small intestine, so surgery was recommended since it was unlikely that the material would pass.  The Ark Veterinary Care team were able to perform the surgery and reached out to SAGE Compassion for Animals to assist with the cost.  Nacho’s surgery was a success and now he is home – hopefully not getting into things he shouldn’t!!
