Sharkey the Goldfish

Can you really take blood from a pet fish? Yes we can!

Here are Dr Glynn and Nurse Rikki drawing blood from Sharkey the 7 year old goldfish! He also had radiographs taken this afternoon – just like you would with any other type of sick pet. These tests help us gain a better understanding of his illness so we can then treat appropriately to give the best possible outcome.

He sure is a big fish! This amazing fellow weighed in at just over 400 grams.
