On the week of September 21st, a story aired on Good Morning America and subsequently made its way to all of the major news outlets about a goldfish in Australia who had a tumor surgically removed at the behest of his owner. The story was presented as a human interest piece but it caught our attention. If you follow us regularly, you probably saw our own goldfish story (see below) posted a couple of months back about a fish who had multiple tumors removed using the Aesculight CO2 Veterinary Laser.
We sent this short video to our local FOX affiliate, Q13 along with an explanation about our product, how it works and the information that we are the only company in the US that makes these lasers. One of their lead reporters, John Hopperstad, was extremely interested and brought a news crew to our Woodinville, WA headquarters to shoot a segment for that day’s news. It ultimately aired during four of their daily newscasts and was teased during the intro for the first two.
The story and video can be viewed by following the link below.
Thanks to John Hopperstad and the Q13 team for their excellent work in putting this great story together!
