We got to meet the lovely Skipper this week whilst on his holidays. During a trip to the beach he suddenly started to cough, sneeze and retch. He was rushed straight down, after an examination he was sedated to examine the back of the throat.

Right at the very back disappearing behind his soft palate was this large blade of grass. One end was heading up into the nasal cavity. Once removed this stopped the irritation. The grass blade was an impressive 20cm long and rough to touch. Skipper can now continue his holiday hopefully choosing a doggie ice cream rather than grass to snack on.

This little cutie Mable came in to see us today with a itchy problem. Although a little earlier than normal Harvest Mites (Trombiucula autumnalis) are making an appearance.
