Another week came to an end with our vets being busier than ever! Many interesting cases required the skills of our amazing vet team but Holly’ chronic pyometra case, drew our attention! Our highly experienced team was there to help sweet Holly and to provide a first class level of care!
Holly’s Chronic Pyometra
This is gorgeous Holly who came to us with a chronic pyometra – a chronic condition is one that persists for a long time or constantly recurs and a pyometra is an infected uterus.
Because of her age and her breed, Holly posed a few complications for anaesthesia but with drugs tailored to her condition, top class anaesthetic monitoring from our highly trained nursing team and a fabulous surgical procedure by our veterinary surgeon team, Holly sailed through it and was discharged just 24hrs hours later xx
🐾Paws up for Holly 🐾
A Blockage of Bab’s Tear Ducts
This beautiful girl is Babs! She came to see us because she has been having some discharge from her eye and it has been bothering her. Rabbits can sometimes get blockages of their tear ducts, which can cause problems like this.
Our Vet Kate flushed through her tear duct with some sterile saline. She will have some eye drops given by her owners at home! We enjoyed a nice cuddle with this sweet girlie 🐰
A Cut On A Paw
This gorgeous little girl, Kiwi, visited our surgery as her owner noticed that she was limping! 😥
She had a cut on her paw which was very painful! Our amazing vet Kate, treated the wound, and Kiwi is now recovering very quickly while feeling a lot more comfortable!🐕
Our team really enjoyed spending the day with her and lovely Sarah was there to disperse many cuddles and kisses to sweet Kiwi! 💞
A Lesson Learned
This is Rufus!💚 As you can see in the x-ray above, Rufus had an awful break in his leg after leaving the house and taking himself for a walk!🦴
Rufus was found injured on the street and brought into us by a kind member of the public. Understandably, he was in a lot of pain!😥
We stabilized Rufus here and tracked down his owners before transferring him over to our Streatham Hill hospital where he would have his leg repaired!
They have done an amazing job and Rufus is walking on all fours again!
He will be seen again every couple of weeks to check in on his progress and will have more xrays taken in 5 weeks time to see if the bone has repaired well. We are so glad to see him doing so well!💚✨
