Marley breathes easy... one year on…
23 September 2015
When Marley, a young Doberman, returned from a walk with a nasty cough and worsening bad breath, her own home vets referred her to Willows when they discovered that she had plant material lodged in her left lung.
Marley was admitted to be treated by our team of Specialist vets. Unfortunately due to the size of the plant material, it was not possible to retrieve it using endoscopy (flexible camera) equipment so Marley had to undergo major open chest surgery to remove the wheat ear (as it turned out to be), along with a damaged portion of her lung. Fortunately Marley made an excellent recovery.
Marley’s owners have now been in touch with us a year on to let us know how well she is and as you can see from the pictures, she is loving life!
