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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

We often get calls about cats that are straining to urinate or have blood in their urine. One of the first questions a veterinary staff member automatically asks after you have told them your cat is having issues urinating is: ‘Do you own a male or female cat?’. Many of our callers may be flustered by […]

I have had a very hectic two weeks and was also on emergency call last weekend. I had a major sleep in today and finally feel refreshed and ready to face the world again. My hard work has mostly paid off recently and I have been rewarded by so many of my clients with brilliant gifts. I […]

So spring has finally sprung and we have been enjoying very beautiful sunny weather. I absolutely love the warmer and hot weather but this season keeps us vets much too busy to enjoy sun bathing. Last week, snake bite season begun. It is a bit early but we definitely encountered a few snake bites and a […]

Big highs & lows

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 […]
