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.

Keeping your pets fit and active with dog sports!

Keeping your pets fit and active with dog sports!

Did you know there are a variety of dog sports that you and your canine companion can participate in? Different breeds may excel at different sports, but there is virtually a dog sport suitable for every breed out there! These include agility, flyball racing, disc dogs, dock jumping, lure coursing, heelwork to music, rally obedience, protection sports and herding.

Agility is perhaps one of the better known and more readily available of the dog sports. Many local clubs have facilities for agility training. Most kinds of breeds, small or large, can participate, and it provides great physical and mental stimulation to keep both their mind and body happy and healthy.

Lumps & Bumps: Best get 'em checked out

Lumps & Bumps: Best get 'em checked out

Have you noticed any lumps or bumps on your pet? If so, it is always wise to get them checked. Lumps and bumps can arise from many different causes including infections, inflammation or tumours. Even if the lump is not causing your pet discomfort, it does not necessarily mean it is nothing to worry about. In fact, if the lump is not itchy, sore or uncomfortable, it is potentially more likely to be a type of tumour.

There are many types of tumours, some which are benign (i.e. do not generally grow rapidly, and do not usually spread to other areas or organs).

Cymry manages immune mediated haemolytic anaemia

Cymry manages immune mediated haemolytic anaemia

Brave Pet of the Month

Cymry is an adorable 10 year old male Corgi, who had previously always been happy and healthy. He came to visist us as he wasn’t his usual self and hadn’t been eating as well as usual. Being a typical Corgi, he usually loves his food!

On examination, we found that he had a fever and his lymph nodes were enlarged, so blood tests were performed and he was started on antibiotics. His blood tests showed that he was anaemic, but his bone marrow was responding strongly and was rapidly producing new red blood cells.
