    A Note From Dr. Florez

    I hope that for most of you the summer is going well. We had a few exceptions as one of our patients decided to get in trouble. This is the case of “Doublestuff”, he’s a 77lb male pitty mix. In October of 2016, I removed about 5 feet of intestines; as it was very damaged from a very complicated foreign body ingestion and blockage. He’s done well after that for the last 3 years. Most pets only decide to go through this only once in their lifetime. However, Doublestuff is special and this time he decided to eat a squeaker part of a toy and lots of grass, that made for a large impaction and his second foreign body surgery. I guess the name goes well with his history “Double” surgery for Doublestuff!

    He’s recovering well and we hope he has learned the lesson this time around.
    I will be ready with the scalpel though..

    Dr. Florez.
