Amazing stories from Wimbledon Vets

Pintxo’s sore hips

12 year old Bearded Collie Pintxo was brought in to Wimbledon Vets for a routine check up. During his visit it became apparent that Pintxo has sore hips when manipulated so the vet decided it would be good to take some x-rays.

The radiographs show that Pintxo has mild arthritis in his hips. Viraf has prescribed pain relief which will make Pintxo feel a lot better.

Henry and Toto

Wimbledon Vets, Kittens, Vet nurseMeet Henry and Toto two of our youngest new clients here at Wimbledon.

These two are nine weeks old which is the ideal time to be vaccinated.
Henry and Toto will come in for this later this week with a follow on appointment three weeks later to complete their first vaccination course and the both of them will then be able to enjoy the great outdoors. A booster vaccination will be required on a yearly basis.

Seventeen year old Suki’s dental

Gorgeous Suki who at nearly seventeen years old (she certainly does not look it) came into our Wimbledon clinic for a dental and an ultrasound this morning.
We removed infected teeth and also found a slightly thickened gut which will with appropriate treatment make her feel better.

April’s arthritis

This is lovely April ,whose owner came to us because April seemed a bit stressed and not herself. Our vet performed an ultrasound which showed nothing abnormal. We also took an xray and found ventral spondylosis at the lumbosacral area, which may mean arthritis in the back and hip area.

April’s change in behaviour is probably due to her being sore. We will give pain relief to make her feel better and keep an eye on her on a regular basis.
