George is a 10-year old goldfish that lives in Australia. He had a brain tumor that was gradually impairing his health. So his owner, Pip Joyce, paid a veterinarian at the Lort Smith Animal Hospital in Melbourne to surgically remove it.

This was a challenging operation that required George to be placed under anesthesia. The veterinary staff pumped water into his gills to keep him breathing during the 45-minute operation. It was a complete success and George has now returned to his home pond where he lives with 20 other goldfish. There's every reason to think that he will continue to live another 20 years.
