A goldfish was taken on a 200-mile round trip to the vets to have a huge tumour removed. Nemo the five-year-old pet underwent an intricate 45-minute operation on his head and shoulders. He was operated on out of the water and at one stage his heart stopped – but vets managed to revive him. Veterinary surgeon Sonya Miles and exotics nurse Millie Gardiner carried out the successful £200 procedure – and Nemo was sent back with his owners Roy Hands, 59, and his wife Caroline, 54, to their home in Aston Clinton, Buckinghamshire, just two hours later.
