Moss gets her sight back!
Here is Sweet old soul Moss. She is a diabetic patient, who visits our Corner Veterinary Surgery for regular checks on her blood sugar levels. Moss has to have twice daily insulin injections, as well as a strict diet regime to control her diabetes.
Unfortunately one of the complications with the disease, is they develop cataracts, more so if the diabetes is not under control. Poor Moss had almost gone completely blind. Once her diabetes had been stabilised, her owner took her to a referral hospital, to have the cataracts removed. Her owner says he has his old dog back!!! She can now see clearly again, and as you can see her eyes are shining bright again.
We will monitor Moss closely to check her diabetes stays under control. She really is a sweetheart, and doesn’t want to leave when she comes in !!! We think it’s the sausage treats!
Common signs of diabetes are lethargy, weight loss, vomiting and drinking a lot. It can be diagnosed with a simple blood and urine test.
This beautiful girl is Bella, pictured here having cuddles with her mummy after recovering from a very bad bout of pancreatitis. Initially Bella was treated at the out of hour’s clinic for suspected Parvovirus as she had haemorrhagic diarrhoea and vomiting.
When she came to see us at The Animal Clinic our Vet Margit investigated the case further and diagnosed her with Pancreatitis.
Pancreatitis is a painful condition which can lead to inappetence, stomach pain and vomiting. It can range from being relatively mild which can cause a slightly upset stomach to very severe with haemorrhagic diarrhoea, vomiting and quite intense pain which does require hospitalisation and intensive care.
We are pleased that Bella has now made a full recovery and is back to her bouncy cuddly self!
Stanley the Shar Pei
This lovable young man is Stanley. Stanley has a condition called entropion on both his eye lids. This is when the eyelids are folded inwards causing the eyelashes to rub against the eye. This as you can imagine would be very uncomfortable and results in inflammation of the eye.
In some breeds such as Shar Pei this is a common genetic condition. To correct this, careful plastic surgery is required to remove part of the eyelid and re-position it to its normal shape. Our skilled surgeon Gabriella peformed this intricate surgery at Streatham Hill Vets and it was a huge success.
We hope Stanley is feeling better and much more comfortable.
Mollie’s minor surgery
Beautiful Mollie visited our Mitcham Veterinary Surgery for a minor surgery.
She had cut one of her hind paws open and our vet Alessandro had to stitch it up after he cleaned and flushed the wound. Mollie will be wearing a bandage on her leg and a collar cone to keep her from trying to take it off. With a course of pain relief and a bit of patience, Mollie will be back on her feet in no time!
The magic of microscopes
This beautiful lady is Luna. She came in to our Blackheath Veterinary Surgery for a recheck. She recently had an anaesthetic to perform an endoscopy of her bladder.
The microscope photos contain images of the debris found in her bladder. The left and top right photos are what her urine looked like under a microscope. As you can see there is evidence of crystallised debris. The photo on the bottom right is from the scope and the yellow/white contents is the debris within her bladder. She is now doing well and is currently on antibiotics to clear the infection.
