Pet of the Month – Mrs Peel

November 28, 2014

Mrs Peel 1This is Mrs. Peel, who presented to Lockyer Avenue Vet Hospital with a history of gagging and coughing. Mrs. Peel spends most of her time indoors, however one week earlier she had ventured outside and eaten some grass. She returned inside 30 minutes later showing symptoms of gagging and coughing.

We gave her a general anaesthetic and after extensive searching for foreign bodies in her nasal and laryngeal passages, we found this blade of grass tucked up underneath her soft palate. Hooray! Mrs. Peel recovered uneventfully from her anaesthetic and all her symptoms have resolved.
