A Cheeky Cat, Hearts, Hips and Teeth! Phew what a week for our London Vets

Naughty Ken What Have You Eaten?!

We had the handsome Ken visit our Blackheath Surgery because his owner noticed he wasn’t eating. Our vet Seohee performed an ultrasound and could see that Ken had something stuck in his intestines. Our vet Matt got to work straight away to remove this foreign object which turned out to be ribbon! He has since made a full recovery and is enjoying his food again ๐Ÿ˜Š

A video of the procedure is available for the non-squeamish!

Elisa’s Heart Check Up

Our Mitcham Vet Surgery saw little Elisa for an X-ray under sedation. She was very well behaved and we enjoyed having her in. She had to have some tests to see why she has been coughing so much lately. It turns out that she has a heart murmur which can be managed with ongoing medication that she received today, we will see her soon for a check up ๐Ÿ˜

Millie’s Hips

This gorgeous girl is Millie. She came to our Wimbledon surgery to see our Vet Viraf. Her owner was concerned that she seemed less mobile and unable to jump up onto things. We took some xrays, which showed that Millie has some mild hip dysplasia. Hip dysplasia is one of the most common skeletal disorders seen clinically in dogs, but is much less common in cats. When it does occur, purebred cats and females are more commonly affected. Hip Dysplasia involves abnormal development and subsequent degeneration of the hip joint. It can also lead to arthritis but Millie’s case is mild, with no sign of arthritis.

We will give her a course of anti inflammatory injections and a good food supplement to manage her condition. Hopefully she will be jumping around as normal in no time.

Pippa’s Pearly Whites!

Meet cutie Pippa whoโ€™s getting lots of cuddles from our care assistant Chloe before her dental ๐Ÿ’• Pippa had two deciduous (baby) teeth that needed to be extracted to allow her adult teeth to grow properly.

Our surgeon Bridget carried out the dental and was happy with her beautiful set of pearly whites. To keep your fur babiesโ€™ teeth at their best you can buy special animal toothpaste (that doesnโ€™t foam) and brush their teeth daily. This will help reduce plaque build up and keep their gums healthy ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

George’s Marvellous Medicine

Wow! George came in for a dental last week as we noticed a tartar buildup on his teeth. Look at the difference! George enjoyed his time with us and was spoilt with cuddles by our nurse, Emma!๐Ÿ˜Šโœจ
