Case Studies

Eevee

Eevee came in because her people thought they saw a small string disappear into her mouth. She began coughing and gagging about an hour later. By the time she came to Urgent Care the coughing had stopped but she was not herself. She seemed uncomfortable on palpation over the larynx. Radiography showed a needle lodged in her throat. Eevee was lightly sedated and Dr. Sparzo was able to remove the needle without causing any damage to the area and no invasive surgery was needed.

Koda

Koda ate grapes, was brought to us around 9:30pm, we induced vomiting and then gave activated charcoal.
