An Australian vet has performed an incredible surgery but not on any animal you would expect.

After undergoing surgery to remove a life-threatening tumour from his brain, George the Goldfish is recovering well.

George’s owner, who lives in Melbourne, decided that George should have the $250 operation. 

The vet who carried out the 45 minute high-risk operation says George is “up and about and swimming around.”

Vets say 10 year old George could now live for another 20 years.
