Don’t worry, I know I still haven’t posted my last dental sequel and I will definitely be doing that soon. I just had to share this unbelievable case with you first. This will also give you a brief break from the gory dental pictures. We have endured a very chaotic working schedule in the past […]

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 […]

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 […]

It has still been very steady at work which is great for a change. I have had a very interesting case load from routine general anaesthetics and dentals to working up a parrot with a non-weightbearing lameness to a behavioural consultation dealing with inter-dog aggression within the same household.

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 […]

The dark cloud has still not lifted and I am still encountering very challenging and heart breaking cases for my 4th week straight. I really need a few good winners to brighten up my spirit. Just got back from an afterhours emergency call and it is almost 1 a.m., my patient is stable and has gone home but […]

Every day I come across a consultation with a geriatric patient with untreated arthritis. My clients often mistaken signs of arthritis as being normal and part of the aging process. While arthritis is a disease of geriatric animals, obesity nowadays is also leading to early onset of arthritis in animals. Dogs and cats will not […]
