Goldfish tank mates undergo surgery

Veterinarian Brigitte Lord performed surgery on goldfish tank mates Nemo and Star. Nemo had a lump removed and Star had an eye removed after being blinded by a tumor. Another veterinarian induced and maintained anesthesia, and the surgeries together totaled about $755. “I know it seems like a lot of money to spend on an operation for a goldfish,” owner Janie Gordon said. “But what was the alternative? I think we’ve a social responsibility to look after our pets, and I know my daughter would have been distraught if anything had happened to the goldfish.” Discovery (3/10)
