Snowie's return to health

Snowie is a nearly 20 year old female domestic shorthair cat, who has been a longstanding patient at the Windaroo Veterinary Surgery. Dr Laura first saw Snowie in late 2014 when she had started to urinate in inappropriate places, and her owners also noticed she was drinking more water than normal. Tests were performed on a sample of her urine, and from the results we strongly suspected that Snowie had diabetes. Blood tests confirmed our suspicions, and Snowie was started on a medication which help to control her blood glucose levels.

Bracken returns to being a normal puppy again!

Bracken was a 5 month old Irish Wolfhound puppy who came to the Windaroo Veterinary Surgery Animal Hospital because his owner noticed he was limping on one of his back legs. Dr Lisa Roberts examined him and found he had a very sore back left leg, and he had a high temperature. Blood tests were run to check when was going on systemically, and they found that he had a high white blood cell count which suggested there may be an infection somewhere.

Dragon's success surgery

Dragon's success surgery

Dragon is a yellow phase five year old female Central Bearded dragon. There are other types of Bearded Dragon, however Central Bearded Dragons generally make better pets as they have personalities better suited to captivity, and they are also available in different colour forms.

Dragon came to us because her owners had noticed that her toes looked abnormal and her foot started to become discoloured. Prior to this they had seen blood on her foot and on their other pet Beardie. 

When she came in, we quickly determined that the foot had become necrotic. We suspect this is due to a bite from the other lizard in the enclosure, which traumatized the tissue and damaged its blood supply.

Blood testing and why it is essential for your pet’s health

Blood testing and why it is essential for your pet’s health

Written by Dr Jesse S-Wardle (BVSc (Hons))

At Windaroo Animal Hospital, our patient’s health and well-being is of paramount importance. Our patients are unable to tell us if they are unwell, and illness can be masked even if they appear happy and healthy.

Every patient we see receives a thorough physical examination to assess their health but this unfortunately does not provide us with information about how their internal organs are functioning. A routine blood test provides your veterinary health care team with a window into what your pets internal organs are doing.
