Specialist x-ray equipment was used during surgery to view the needle in real time, allowing surgeons to remove it without resorting to an invasive procedure.

Samantha Woods, senior lecturer at Edinburgh's hospital for small animals, said: "We are really pleased to see Toby back to full health, thanks to the combined efforts of his vets and our specialist teams here in Edinburgh."
