This is a subject very close to my heart. Ever since I graduated, I always struggled with educating my clients about the importance of dental hygiene in their beloved pets. As soon as I noted some tartar or plaque build-up on their pet’s teeth and before I could discuss my recommendations, they would defensively react […]

Layla,a 12 month old Great Dane, had been scheduled for a pregnancy ultrasound later that afternoon.

It has still been very steady at work which is great for a change. I have had a very interesting case load from routine general anaesthetics and dentals to working up a parrot with a non-weightbearing lameness to a behavioural consultation dealing with inter-dog aggression within the same household. Ah my line of work definitely never gets boring. […]

I was pretty excited about going back to work. I really missed doing what I do best: ‘treating my sweet patients’. I was scheduled to do surgeries that morning and I did not have much on. I first had to desex ‘Milky‘. She was found to be in season and her uterus was fairly enlarged […]

It feels so surreal to have my best mate Elin & her fiance Sverre over from Norway… Elin and I practically lived together in our last two years of vet school. She went back home when she graduated and is mainly a large animal vet. They are only here for 4 days but we are […]
