I can’t believe how fast time is flying. Only two weeks ago, I was enjoying a thrilling new experience of getting a photo shoot of me and my dogs at Saint Kilda dog beach. I finally got to meet one of my fellow bloggers and utilised her photography talent to the maximum. I really can’t […]

I sure love mixed practice. I have been treating a myriad of cases lately from birdies to doggies and kitty cats. I also received a phone call from one of my favourite clients giving me the heads up that her cows are due to start calving. She had a bad season last year requiring us to […]

“Major” update

January 13, 2012

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…

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. […]

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 […]

This week has been a very interesting one. It was pretty hectic the first half but then it slowed down on thursday and friday. I think it got quiet because of the horrid rainy and windy weather. Lots of our clients either cancelled their appointments or simply rescheduled. It has also been a week full […]

As you would have noticed, my blog site was being updated and I sure hope you like the new changes. I have also simultaneously been hammered at work.

I have been very fortunate in my experiences as a vet. I have seen quite a wide range of cases that not many vets would have. I feel blessed and quite thankful for that. It has made me a much better and more well-rounded vet. I am simply ready to tackle any species and am so […]

Meet Bruno, the friendliest Maremma I have ever met. He is living proof that any breed of dog is capable of being well socialised! This champ is one of my fave patients. He loves coming into the vet clinic and is usually busting with excitement to see everyone especially me because I have brain washed […]

Spider calf

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 […]
