A rescue cat is the first pet in Britain to be cured of cancer after undergoing pioneering treatment which uses electric shocks to blast tiny holes in the tumour.
Former stray Tigga was treated with electrochemotherapy, which experts hope could be used in humans in the future.
The ground-breaking procedure targets only cancerous cells - unlike normal chemotherapy which also damages healthy cells.
Incredibly, just 44 days after having the treatment to get rid of the aggressive tumour on her nose, Tigga was in complete remission.
Electrochemotherapy is a treatment which is given in two stages.
Firstly, the pet is given a mild dose of intravenous chemotherapy before a probe passes a very precise electrical charge to the area in and around the tumour.
This temporarily blasts open tiny holes in the cells, big enough to allow the drug to enter, which then close again in microseconds.
This means the drug will only attack cancerous cells, unlike normal chemotherapy, which also kills healthy cells.
Tigga's owners, sound engineer Paul Carter and bookkeeper Clare Woodley, both 39, discovered she was unwell when she struggled to walk and maintain balance last year.
Tigga was the first pet to be treated with electrochemotherapy at North Downs Specialist Referrals in Bletchingley, Surrey, which is the only vets' in Britain to use the treatment.
