A beloved pet goldfish named Bubbles has been given a fresh start at a happy and healthy life, all thanks to the delicate work of a veterinarian who believed he was very much worth saving.
The 9-year-old fish had been suffering from a tumorous growth on his head. If left untreated, it would make it difficult for him to swim or feed normally. Fortunately, Tristan Rich of the Lort Smith Animal Hospital, in Australia, knew just what to do.
Bubbles would need to undergo surgery.
