This is Matilda aka Tilly she came into our Chellaston surgery because she was gagging and retching.
We were struggling to see anything whilst she was conscious so we gave her some sedation so we could have a better look.
On examination our vet Catherine could see a blade of grass at the back of her throat and was able to remove it with forceps.
Given the size of the blade of grass we are not surprised Tilly struggled to cough it up herself.
Advice from client Maggie
I’ve had this happen to my cat twice now!! I think it was pampas grass so have chopped it down!!!
Boo had surgery to remove not one, but three foreign bodies from her intestines and stomach!
We are running FREE clinics aimed to support our senior pets
Eric came in to see our vet Rachael as he wasn’t eating as much as normal
