They take their cat for a routine visit
Who could have suspected that? By dropping off their cat at the vet that day, this couple would never have dreamed that he was going to make such a discovery in his stomach.
The importance of a vet check-up should never be overlooked, even when everything is going well for the animal. Because it is sometimes complicated to detect certain health problems. This is exactly what happened with a cat living in Ohio with his family.
A control visit that ends in operation
It was after a simple check-up with his veterinarian that a cat was taken to the Rascal veterinary hospital. At first glance, everything seemed to be going well for this cat who had no clinical signs of illness. And yet.
In fact, the cat had a stomach full of hair ties. And that’s not a way of speaking since no less than 36 rubber bands were removed from his stomach. To say the least, it was this visit to the vet that probably saved this cat who subsequently suffered various health problems.
Impressed by what they found in the stomach of this cat, the vets at the Rascal veterinary hospital shared the operation on their Facebook page. A video that immediately met with great success since it has been shared many times since.
And contrary to what one might think, this story is not an isolated case and cats very frequently swallow hair bands. So be careful not to leave them lying around and in general watch out for foreign bodies.
