#1: A UK man noticed that his beloved goldfish was constipated. How did he spot the stop-up? Never mind, we don't want to know.
#2: The man bundled up his beloved pet and took him to the vet.
So. Many. Questions.
Did the pet owner stroll to the doc with fishy in a bowl? Did he put the goldfish in a traveling case and drive? Was he mortified to be sitting in the waiting room with legit pet owners? (You know, pets with fur and personalities)
#3: The fish lover was told that surgery would cost nearly $500. He said "okey dokey" and actually pulled out his wallet. That's 5 - 0 - 0.
#4: A vet actually operated on the tiny fish saying, "The issue was the fish couldn't poo and it would have eventually become toxic and it would have died."
Involving tubes and a miniature heart-rate monitor, here's how the surgery went down:
Vet Faye Bethell used anaesthetised water to knock out the goldfish before removing the blockages.
"At the end of the day they're all pets and everybody does have a commitment to their pet," Bethell said. "[The goldfish] was constipated because he had a lump blocking his bottom" she said.
Well then! Goldfish can't have a bran muffin? Twitter had opinions, of course.
A man spent $500 on surgery for his goldfish. Even PETA thinks this guy is a dumbass.— Adam Wolf (@AdamWolf77) January 5, 2015
