Sometimes it is good to be a big headed staffy

April 29, 2012

It was 7.30 p.m. and I was running a little late at work after a pretty full on day. I was feeling quite fatigued and when I realised I was on emergency call, I expressed myself aloud saying: ‘I hope not to receive a single afterhour’s call and if I do, it had better be […]

Fetching a stick turns ugly…

January 8, 2012

‘Major’ walked into the clinic and our vet team was stupified. Every staff member that was cruising past me kept saying: ‘Have you seen that dog with the stick injury?’. I was starting to get edgy because I was still finishing up a procedure and was now dieing to see what the whole fuss was about. […]

It has been a very intense two weeks at work. We have cases coming out of our ears as grass seed season has kicked in. We have started to get people walking in with their poor pooch shaking their heads or rubbing their eyes or licking their paws. It is only the beginning of this […]

One expensive goat curry…

Monday was looking good. Schedule was not too frantic, things were running smoothly and everything was under control. We got all too comfortable but then Tuesday came. My goodness, I really still don’t know how we managed to pull through and maintain any cognitive function at the end of the day. If we didn’t come […]

I am pleased to give everyone an update on ‘Gemma’. I only operated on her 10 days ago. She has bounced back and is on her way to a full recovery. Her examination showed her vitals were all okay and she is in the clear. I can not tell you how thrilled I am to […]

Atypical bleeding cases continued…

Getting back to my interesting anaemic case load. I was still mentally trying to get my head around ‘Myff‘ and what I could have done better in her management, then I admitted another seriously anaemic patient. The owner brought in ‘Cass’, her 12-year-old female desexed labrador cross that had crashed overnight. The owner said ‘Cass’ […]

Cull the ewe

Just as we closed the doors to the clinic and finished up our Saturday morning consults, the afterhours emergency phone rang and I had to go treat a horse with a huge flesh wound. It was the sweetest horse and he cooperated so well with the whole process. As I was ready to leave the property, the farmers […]

The anti-pitbull breedist legislation

Firstly, I would like to pay my deepest condolences to the Victorian family that witnessed their toddler attacked and killed by their neighbor’s pit bull. I totally empathize with the mourning of this Victorian family and definitely support stricter laws being enforced by the government. These laws should include harsher penalties for the owners of un-contained aggressive dogs to […]

Thirsty Kitty Cat

This week I have been blessed with what I call a good cat run. I have had heaps of my geriatric cats come in for checkups or follow-up examinations. While I am usually psyched about seeing my feline friends, they do not share the same sentiment. They arrive feeling flustered, humiliated and worst of all […]
