Lucky Peridot guy was found a little over a week ago at an abandoned house. His new family became concerned when he began howling and showing difficulty urinating. Our staff later learned he was experiencing stranguria, or painful and frequent small-volume emissions of urine.
Our emergency staff internally transferred him into the care of the surgery department, where he was prepped for a cystotomy procedure. Cystotomy is a surgical procedure used for treating bladder problems. The procedure involves creating a small opening in the wall of the urinary bladder, allowing the surgeon to inspect the insides. Peridot had a successful procedure and spent time in the hospital to ensure he was healthy before recovering in his new home.
