When I was 15, my mom told me she wished she could send me somewhere else for two years. I knew she didn’t really mean it. I was a strong-willed kid who always pushed the limits. When my own three daughters were 13 to 15 years […]
In a Facebook post that went viral last week, a Thai woman shared a story about how she treated her pet goldfish and managed to save its life even though its tail and part of its body had rotted away.
In a post that ended up gathering over 110,000 likes on Facebook, Kanya Tantiwiwatkul wrote that six months ago she noticed that her pet goldfish wasn’t feeling too well. Its tail had rotted away completely, and part of its flesh had started to do the same to the point where she could already see bones sticking out.
That’s when she took some photos of it and then went to an aquarium fish shop to ask for any medicine that might help. After seeing the pictures, the vendor told her that the fish had no chance and recommended that she throw it away and get a new pet. Kanya didn’t want to give up on the goldfish, so she bought some medicine and over the next six months nursed it back to health.
On September 12, about six months after she started treating her pet, giving it the medicine daily and changing its water regularly, Kanya Tantiwiwatkul posted a photo that showed just how far the little fish had come. The backside of its body was completely regenerated, and it had even started growing back part of its tails, which, judging by the “before” photo, seems nothing short of miraculous.
