I am very sad and I feel more miserable than I can say, and I do not know how far I’ve come. I do not know what to do or what to think, but vehemently desire to leave this place. I feel so melancholy.

Vincent van Gogh, Letters (1875-1890)

A Melbourne veterinarian has performed pioneering surgery on the beloved pet of a local resident. Dr. Tristan Rich, head of exotics and wildlife medicine at Lort Smith Animal Hospital, performed micro-surgery on scaled but treasured George the Goldfish last week. A large tumour had grown on the head of the 80-gram fish, causing distress for the creature and his owner, and impacting on George’s quality of life.
