It's been a few weeks now since Kiwi got his new prosthetic eye, and though he's still recovering in his own tank at home, Morgan says that he's doing great and seems happy to be back to his old self. When Kiwi does finally return to the other fish, we hope they agree.
All of this effort to improve Kiwi's well-being might seem like a waste to some folks, but not to his vet, and certainly not to his owner.
"A lot of other people would say, 'Yes, put him down. Go ahead, it's just a fish,'" said Morgan. "Well, my opinion is nothing is just a something. And if I could give him quality of life, why not?"
