He finally grew into that bow tie
A 10-year-old pet goldfish named George prepares to go under the knife to remove a life-threatening tumour at the Lort Smith Animal Hospital in Melbourne, Australia.
The 45-minute long procedure was performed by vet Tristan Rich who described the operation as ‘fiddly’. The fish was sedated by water laced with anaesthetic and once the tumour was removed the wound was sealed with tissue glue followed by antibiotics and painkillers.

Pet your turtles, they enjoy snugglies more than painI feel like this is especially appropriate for cars and turtles in the road.
And don’t drill holes in them or paint em. Its painful and toxic and you’ll make the poor things cry!
Our turtles love having their heads and chins scratched. And a light pat on their shells. No hits, or thumps. They love good pets, please pet them with love.
Shells are LITERALLY their backbone, imagine if someone thumped you hard on the spine. It would suck right? Don’t do it.
Also their shells are covered in a VERY thin layer of fingernail-like material called scutes. When you paint it, a) it’s very easy for the toxins in the paint to absorb into the turtle’s system and poison them, b) it cuts off circulation to the thin layer of living skin below the scutes, c) it deforms the shell because turtles, especially young turtles, grow rapidly and the paint will inhibit proper shell growth and d) prevents the turtle from absorbing necessary vitamin D from UV rays (you know, that stuff they need to live). NEVER EVER PAINT A TURTLE EVER.
Next time you want to knock on a turtle/tortoise shell, go ask your neighbor to punch you in the ribs, and see how that feels. Not only is it the spine, but their lungs sit near the top of the curve as well—THIS IS WHY TURTLES/TORTOISES CAN DIE IF LEFT FLIPPED OVER TOO LONG, IT IS VERY DISTRESSING FOR THEIR BODIES.
be gentle with living beings you are responsible for.

Matt the cat has been given a new lease of life after vets shaved off two carrier bags worth of fur. The mangy moggie was close to death when he was discovered abandoned in a box that had been dumped by the side of the road. After years of neglect his thick coat had grown so long it had become matted together and he was so sick he could barely muster the energy to eat.
Horrified vets rushed the Persian cat onto the operating table where he was sedated - and as soon as he went under they set about removing all of his fur. Thankfully Matt pulled through and has been nursed back to health by the team at Well Animal Clinic in West Hampstead, north west London.
