Operan de un tumor cerebral a pez doméstico [+Fotos]

Una pareja británica que adora a su pequeño pez dorado Nemo no dudó en recorrer más de 200 kilómetros y en gastarse 200 libras en una operación para extirpar un tumor cerebral a la pequeña carpa.

Sonya Miles, veterinaria de la clínica de Bristol (Inglaterra), explicó este martes que la operación que le realizó al animal, de cinco años de edad, duró 45 minutos, se realizó fuera del agua y bajo anestesia total. El tumor, casi tan grande como el pez, fue extraído con éxito.

A combination of handout pictures released by Highcroft Veterinary Group on May 31, 2016 show Nemo the goldfish (R) before surgery to remove a large tumour from its back at a veterinary hospital in Bristol, western England, on May 13, 2016 and after the operation (L). A couple from a small town north of London made a 200-mile round trip to take their pet goldfish Nemo to a specialist vets for surgery to remove a tumour. The operation lasted 45 minutes, during which he was asleep and out of the water so that the tumor could be removed. Nemo recovered quickly from the procedure and was swimming normally once returned to the water. / AFP PHOTO / HIGHCROFT VETERINARY GROUP / HIGHCROFT VETERINARY GROUP / RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE - MANDATORY CREDIT " AFP PHOTO / HIGHCROFT VETERINARY GROUP " - NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS - DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS

“Hubo un momento en que tuvimos miedo porque su corazón dejó de latir, pero la enfermera anestesista logró reanimarlo“, explicó Sonya Miles sobre la operación, que tuvo lugar a mediados de mayo.

Una vez de vuelta al agua, Nemo volvió rápidamente a nadar y a su feliz vida de siempre.

Sonya Miles admitió que no es una operación frecuente, y que existe poca gente dispuesta a pagar 200 libras (260 euros, 290 dólares) para curar un pez, un animal doméstico de coste modesto.

La última intervención de este tipo en la clínica veterinaria Highcroft de Bristol fue en 2015.

La noticia llegó a los medios nacionales este martes, generando división de opiniones. “Hubiera hecho lo mismo, y me conmueve oír que los veterinarios pueden operar a pequeños animales como ese”, comentó Martina Watson en la página Facebook de la BBC.
