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.

Possum's near death encounter with an Eastern Brown Snake

Possum's near death encounter with an Eastern Brown Snake

Brave Pet of the Month: February 2017

Possum is a one year old female Ragdoll who has a permanent, endearing cross eyed look! Her very concerned fur-parents called the Windaroo Veterinary Surgery Animal Hospital to say they were bringing her down, as she had been scratching at her neck, drooling, and was cranky; certainly not her usual self!

When Dr Laura examined her, Possum seemed virtually normal, though there was some minor swelling of her face, and there were two small puncture marks on her nose. Even though Possum was still quite well, we were concerned that she may have challenged a snake to a duel and lost.

Loola's car accident resulting in a tail amputation

Loola's car accident resulting in a tail amputation

Brave Pet of the Month: March 2017

Loola is a five and a half year old Border Collie who came to the Windaroo Veterinary Surgery Animal Hospital to see Dr Lisa Roberts, as one afternoon after she had accidently been run over by a four-wheel-drive. When she came in, Loola was walking quite timidly, with her tail down between her legs. Fortunately she did not appear to be in shock, and didn’t seem to have any injuries to her chest or abdomen, but Dr. Lisa thought she may have a fractured tail or ‘tail pull’ injury, which is usually far more common in cats.

The first night Loola was given pain relief to keep her comfortable, and she was instructed to have bed rest with the plan of having x-rays the following day.
