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?’.

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.

July 24, 2011


There is nothing better than going down memory lane. I was digging into pictures of my university days and I found that I was even more obsessed then in taking photographs. I guess back in those days, I had more time on my hands and was the enthusiastic observer and not the actual vet in […]

Here I was today examining a very much loved goose named ‘China’. What are the odds, seriously? Maybe the word has gotten out that there is a goose specialist in town. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely crave learning more and more about every creature. ‘China’ is a very much loved pet Chinese goose that […]

Spider calf

July 18, 2011


This is a rare case and I actually did not see this calf myself. This little calf was born alive with a major abnormality: an extra set of legs attached to his own head! There are a few calves that are born with a variety of such abnormalities but most of them usually die a […]
