Cuy X-Ray

Cuy, its more than just a delicious dinner.

Cuy, its more than just a delicious dinner.

Dr. Ari came into my consultorio laughing in the afternoon and asked if I had ever heard of a cuy x-ray. Interested, I said no, but please tell me. She said she had a patient who came into her office telling her he had problems with his gall bladder. He knew because when he went to the local witch doctor, they had taken a cuy (guinea pig), placed it on his abdomen for some time, and then afterward killed the cuy, dissecting it and examining all its organs. During the dissection they found that the cuy’s gallbladder was inflamed, indicating that the patient himself had an inflamed gallbladder. A Cuy X-Ray!
