WSU Veterinarians Perform Rare Surgery to Remove a Show Cat’s Tumor

Japanese retired show cat receives a life-saving surgery from Washington State University Veterinarians. The cat’s name is Honeybee, and she is a 10-year-old Maine Coon. Honeybee had a pituitary gland tumor, which required the cat to receive multiple doses on insulin daily. The rare surgery successfully removed the tumor, and honeybee only needs normal doses of insulin every day.

Washington State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital was the first university and is now one of three hospitals in America that provide pituitary tumor surgery.
