China the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, came into hospital after an overnight visit to the Animal Emergency Centre. She was depressed and vomiting.
Upon palpation Dr Simmone felt an unusual lump in China’s abdomen which required an exploratory laparotomy. The operation found a nectarine pip blocking China’s intestinal tract. She has recovered well from her operation and is now on a fruit-free diet!
If you have any stone fruit trees at home, remember to pick up any fallen fruit to avoid your pets going through the same ordeal as China.
