Dental Tips And News From Our Vets

Did you know that up to 50% of pets over three years old are suffering with dental disease?

Dental disease is one of the most common problems we see in veterinary practice and can cause significant pain and suffering to our little friends. Poor dental hygiene can lead to bad breath, infection, pain and the loss of teeth.

Preventative care such as brushing your pet’s teeth, and regular dental check-ups with your vet are essential to your beloved pet’s long term health. Check our video below in which, our lovely vet Bridget, assisted by gorgeous Lilly, give more information about dental treatments.

News From The Vets

It’s been a very good week for our vets. From routine procedures to more intricate ones, our vets were on hand to take care of all the animals that needed our help and to provide only an exceptional level of care.

A Lump In Darcey’s Paw 🐾

This beautiful American Bulldog cross called Darcey with our amazing Vet Kate enjoyed lots of cuddles and kisses. Darcey came into the practice today to have some small lumps removed from her paws. 🐶🐾

Lumps can appear at any time on any part of the body. Not all lumps are malignant (cancerous), some are benign (harmless) but it’s always best to check your pet over and get your Vet to have a look. 👨‍🔬👩‍🔬

If your pet has a lump you are concerned about, please give us a call 📞

Neutering Procedures

Our team had a lovely day caring for those two handsome boys: Casper (on the left) and Montego (on the right) ❤️ Both kittens were in for routine neutering and they were star patients!

Neutering your male cats is very important, especially when they’re young, as it prevents not only unwanted pregnancies and serious illnesses, but stops boys from getting into fights, spraying, and displaying other dominant behaviours 🤓 Give us a call if you’d like to book the procedure!

Milo’s amazing story💚

Milo came to us mid July after a trip to the emergency clinic. 
Milo had been out one day and had returned to the house covered in a wet substance with a strong chemically smell which wasn’t drying; he fell quite ill less than 24 hours later. He would not eat or drink on his own and he was extremely lethargic and deflated😔.

After examination, we suspected that Milo had been exposed to antifreeze or something similar, which in most cases can be lethal.
Milo was referred to the RVC as an emergency case for intensive care and his owners were sure that they would have to say goodbye💔.

After little improvement, a feeding tube was placed and Milo was sent home to spend his last few days at home with his loving owners.

Milo was brought in to Mayow for regular checks and was put on LOTS of medication, which we are now slowly weaning him off of!

Milo has made such amazing progress and is almost back to his normal self! He is now eating on his own, gaining weight and he is brighter than ever🌟. 
We are still using his feeding tube to ensure that he is sufficiently hydrated and getting the correct nutrients.

Milo is still being very closely monitored but we are very happy with his progress and always look forward to a cuddle with him💚🐾

Nelly’s Ultrasound

This little girl is called Nellie. She came in for an ultrasound today with our vet Seohee.

The scan showed that her uterus was quite large and contained discharge. This is either a hydrometra/ mucometra (accumulation of a sterile, watery or mucous secretion in the uterus) the very early stages of pyrometra (infection of the womb). 

Either way this little girl needs to have surgery to remove her uterus. Nellie has been put on antibiotics and will come back in for the procedure very soon 💜
