Have you see this article from BBC? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/29210991
It’s amazing news. Dr. Tristan Rich of the Lort Smith Animal Hospital in Melboune, Australia, performed surgery on a goldfish to remove a large tumor from the animal’s head. The fish - named George (how friggin’ cute) - had a sizable tumor that was reportedly impeding its ability to swim, properly breathe, and eat. George’s owners also reported bullying and/or harassment from other fish in the pond fish.
George’s owners were faced with a unique choice. As a ten year old goldfish in a pond, it is not outside the realm of possibilities that George could live for another ten or twenty years if the surgery was attempted. Without, his long term fate remained uncertain, and his quality of life was certainly poor.
Dr. Rich placed George under anesthesia and, in a rather clever move, used water from George’s pond pumped into the mouth and out the gills to ventilate the fish (rather smart because it means no jarring chemical shifts that could place further stress on George’s body).
George is reportedly doing well post surgery.
It’s an utterly amazing story.
Here are some quotes from Dr. Rich:
"For the owners, it’s not about having a fish, it’s about having this fish."
”If you have a pet, regardless of what it is, then you have a responsibility to look after it as best you can.”
That’s my kind of vet! :D
The DailyMail goes more in-depth, but they have more graphic photos.

Freddie’s weapons (and the rest of the Pieces of Trinity) reconstruct themselves each time they’re summoned for use. I want to work on exploring that idea a little more once I go through a few more designs of the weapons themselves.
