🌞🌞 Today is the first day of Summer! 🌞🌞
It is the time of the year where we can enjoy the sunshine with a nice walk in the park or in the beach. However, as the temperature rises, we have to make sure that our four-legged friends stay in top shape! Keeping your pet’s flea and worm treatment up to date is essential as Summer is the favourite season for these parasites. In addition, your pets need to be hydrated at all times.
In the video below, our vet, Dane is giving some tips on how to keep your pets cool in warm days!
Our Clinical Stories
In the last week of Spring, our vets were busier than ever! Many adorable pets visited us for neutering procedures, surgeries or simply health checks and vaccinations just to make sure that they are healthy before the beginning of Summer.
A Life-Saving Operation For George
This playful trio is Maranda, Millicano & George 🐰💜🐰💙🐰
They came in to see us at The corner Vets as George had been dragging and not putting weight one of his legs. After a couple checks we realised that George had completely lost all feeling in this leg. This was starting to cause him a lot of stress and frustration which is not good for any animal. 🥺☹️
Our wonderful vet Ioana has decided that the best thing for George would be to amputate his leg. Rabbits can still easily get around on three legs and this will allow George to lead a happy stress free life.
George’s big day will be at the end of this week. I’m sure if he has his bunny brother’s and sister’s with him for support like he did today he will be just fine. 🥰
💕 We will keep you updated on how George gets on after his big surgery! 💕
New Life Is On The Way
🐕🐾 If you look closely at our dogs abdomen you will be able to see two more dogs! 🤗
This x rays has been taken quite late (usually after day 45 of the mating) to try and determine how many puppies are present, at the moment, in this image you can see two skulls and sets of ribs and the spines. ❣
During pregnancy from around day 22, the puppy’s heart will begin beating; by day 24 the limb buds will start to form.
After day 34, the bones will become harder and the joints and toes/claws will develop.
We can’t wait to welcome these guys in to the world!
Spike’s Mass Removal
Lovely Spike came to us today because he was having problems passing faeces. 😥 He was also lethargic and looking sad and his owners were concerned. Our vet Isaco with the help of our nurse Alex performed a full exam on him which included bloods, x-rays and a full abdominal scan in other words an ultrasound. We suspected that he had a mass or foreign body 🤔 We decided to perform a exploratory laparotomy, which means to open the abdomen and see what is causing the problem.
Marta our receptionist was keeping the owners updated in regards to his procedure as they were very worried as he is loved so much. He didnt have a foreign body but he had a large mass growing on the wall of his rectum 😣 We removed the mass, closed the abdomen and he had a fantastic anaesthetic! 😁😁 We hope that he will be feeling better soon and we look forward to seeing him for a post OP check! 🥰 He is such a sweet dog! Well done Spike 🐶🏅
A Skin Irritation
This adorable pooch is Foxie 🐾
Foxie was back for a follow up checkup after he experienced some skin irritation and sores around his mouth.
After anti inflammatories and antibiotics our vet Jenny is delighted to see that it has cleared up nicely 🤗
That’s sure to put a smile on both Foxie and his owners face 😁
