Northwoods Animal Hospital gets big donation from Marshfield ClinicSubmitted: 07/05/2013

MINOCQUA - Equipment that used to help patients in the Marshfield clinic found a new job, with a new sort of client. Specifically, ones with fur or feathers.

The Marshfield Clinic donated an endoscope to the Northwoods Animal Hospital last month. Already doctors have used the equipment to save a loon's life.

"The Loon would not have made it if we'd had to do surgery because its a type of animal that is very fragile.... This procedure, we performed it with Dr. Franks and he was able to do the procedure, it took maybe 10 minutes, and the hooks were removed and the loon was released 2 days later."

Most animal hospitals don't have access to equipment like this. Dr. Theuerkauf is happy to have it. He says there are many times where an endoscope can save a pet from going under the knife.
"Say it swallows your diamond ring. We can go in and retrieve that. Or a battery. A battery can be very detrimental to the intestinal tract"

Dr. Franks from the Marshfield Clinic is also donating his time to train Dr. Theuerkauf how to use the new equipment.
