The fish that was operated for ... hernia!!!

Carla the fish has had a life-saving operation after developing a hernia.

The 10-inch-long angelfish was laid out on an operating table while a vet and two assistants carried out the unusual surgery.

After being anaesthatised the exotic fish had a tube placed in her mouth and water pumped through her body and out her gills to enable her to breathe.

Vet Sue Thornton repaired the stomach condition using a scalpel, a needle and forceps during the £500 operation.

After being stitched up and brought round the plucky fish was kept under close observation before she went on to make a full recovery. More...
