Pet of the Month – Stitch

Pet of the month -

Stitch

Stitch-x-ray-1Stitch is a 7 ½ year old Devon Rex cat who presented earlier this year for vomiting. He had been eating normally and was playful but acting a little cranky toward his siblings. Upon physical examination, a mass in the front part of his abdomen was found. Abdominal x-rays revealed a bunched, linear foreign body in the stomach. A gastrotomy, or stomach surgery, was performed and a large amount of nylon cord was removed from Stitch’s stomach. There were also multiple rubber bands and the plastic seal from a milk jug as well! He recovered uneventfully and is now our first feline Pet of the Month. Good job Stitch!
