Daisy came to visit me last month because she had became extremely unwell overnight. She had been vomiting alot and was in pain and reluctant to move around. When I examined her she was extremely dehydrated and she was very painful in her belly. In her groin we found a large swelling that was painful to touch. I did an ultrasound on it and found that it contained gas. 

Based on these findings she was diagnosed with a strangulated inguinal hernia.
