Nikki managed to accidentally swallow a stone when playing with her toy on the beach. She ended up with a gut obstruction causing her to be very poorly :-(
We operated on her (after stabilising her enough for general anaesthesia with some intravenous fluids and medications) and removed the stone from her jejunum (which is high up in the small intestines).
As you can see from her xray...it was a rather large stone!! The second picture is Nikki at her post op check 6 days after surgery.
Nikki was very brave throughout her ordeal and is such a lovely girl.
Thankfully, she has made a full and swift recovery!
