A tale of resilience and recovery: Miller, the cherished 3-year-old Labrador, faced a veterinary emergency with chronic vomiting. The case was referred to CGS Hospital; the diagnosis revealed abdominal pain, leading to an ultrasound revealing a foreign body in the intestine.

But Miller's journey took a challenging turn with severe systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) after 48 hours. Against the odds, the dedicated care from experienced veterinarians and the compassionate support of the CGS team triumphed.

Miller's joyous discharge is a testament to the collaborative efforts of skilled professionals at CGS Hospital in the face of adversity.
