A Movie Star in my house

Surprise visits are the best. I had planned to blog about my very interesting eye cases today but a unique visit has prompted me to postpone the eye case discussion. We got a phone call this morning from the owner of a SUPER STAR PET asking if she could honour her promise. Although I was […]

Surviving snakebite against all the odds…

What a fascinating week it has been… It hasn’t been as busy which is really nice for a change. We all took advantage of the situation and turned it into BRING YOUR PETS TO WORK week. Here are Licorice & Kay, owned by Karen (one of our vet nurses) I had discovered a lump growing […]

The big heat wave

I have had a rather steady two weeks at work. However, my weekends have been rather interesting. Last weekend I threw Alana (my colleague at work) an 80’s dress up farewell party. She is off to the UK in February and I will miss her heaps. We have a great vet working relationship and have […]

“Major” update

What a day it has been. I walked into the clinic and there was this 3 weeks premature born cria (baby alpaca) that required urgent attention. It was so weak and struggling to breathe. We started with offering her aggressive supportive therapy-warming her up, passing a gastric tube to feed her and then even maintained her on some oxygen. She […]

Fetching a stick turns ugly…

‘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. […]

Where are they now? (2011)

Right back into it :-)

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 […]

Has your dog suddenly slowed down?

Time is flying by and I am experiencing life in a whole new dimension. For the past couple of weeks, I have been through some tough times. I am feeling very homesick especially because I know I am missing out on a huge family reunion. My adorable nephew is visiting his grandparents and is being […]

Vet Weekend On Call Bonanza

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 […]

Tawny frog mouth: trick or treat

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 […]
