Fish hook troubles Louis

Louis the Chocolate Labrador - Patient of the Month - June 2016

Meet Louis the lovable Chocolate Labrador who visited the clinic after a fish hook was lodged in his hind leg. During a morning swim at Coburg Lake Louis left the water with the hook and line very much embedded.

Louis required a sedation in order for x-rays to be performed. The x-rays enabled us to locate the exact positioning of the hook and how far it had travelled.

Louis was such a brave boy whilst our veterinarians safely removed the remains of the metal lure.
