Khaleesi will fly again!
Meet Khaleesi. She is a Common Buzzard, possibly from Scandinavia (due to her very light colouring), she was found by Briar House Veterinary Surgery’s fantastic vet Enrico. Enrico was flying his Falcon in the countryside on Sunday and found her on the floor with a broken wing and wound from being electrocuted. As you all know Enrico has a keen interest in birds and is a falconer himself. He scooped her up, brought her to the practice and carried out surgery on her wing. She is staying here with us to recover, be fed and have medication. As you can see she enjoying her quail and she is absolutely beautiful!!
Please keep all your fingers crossed that she will make a full recovery very soon!
This handsome boy is Basil. He came in to our Blackheath surgery for a re-check following his dental and xrays last week. Our vet Ash was suspicious that Basil had arthritis and his owner wanted to have xrays done at the same time as his dental to confirm the diagnosis. The xray shows signs of arthritis around his right elbow joint. He had one of the largest premolars removed known as the carnassial. Ash is pictured suturing the gum closed after removing the tooth.
