As per reports, the veterinarian, who removed stones and sand from penguin Happy Feet's stomach, has again been requested to eliminate a stone from the stomach of the globe's only white kiwi.
However, the reports accounted that Manukura (kiwi) will certainly loose his life, if her stone removal operation would not be done immediately.
Giving some more details about the issue, Chris Lester, the Department of Conservation Wairarapa area Manager stated that the idea of losing the dear bird was very thought to believe, and they strongly believe that the vet will certainly save the precious bird.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Mt Bruce wildlife centre officials observed that from past few days, the bird was not eating anything and soon after seeing his bad health, she was shifted to Wellington City Zoo.
Following the medical procedures, an X-ray showed the bird had eaten two $2 coin-sized stones and as a result, these big stones were they were caught in her digestive area.
This morning the vet would be performing the final endoscopic procedure to remove the stones and the bird.
Meanwhile, the reports further asserted that this was not the first time that the vet will be conducting the removal surgery, as earlier also another bird named as Happy Feet, found on the Kapiti Coast, also experienced alike procedure to eliminate the same material from his gut.
Moreover, if Manukura's stones couldn't be removed through the oesophagus, then the bird would certainly be operated with another persistent surgery.
On the other hand, Dr. Argilla, the veterinarian added, "I would say the risk is relatively low if her strength levels are high. She's in good hands. They're some of the best vets in the southern hemisphere''.
