BEST PRACTICE

VET VISIT

It would be ideal to perform only suture patterns that have good apposition. It’s important to inspect the mucus lining of the stomach for any palpable lesions, whether they are tumors, ulcers, or any other type of growth. In the case of the Cat under my care, the needle and thread that I recovered from the stomach was placed in a plastic case for the owners to identify. Seeing the evidence would help them achieve closure, at the same time remind them of the importance of ensuring that all needles are kept away from the Cat’s reach. If the same accident were to happen next time, things might not have the same happy ending.
