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.

Molly's bladder stone recovery

Molly's bladder stone recovery

Brave Pet of the Month: January 2017

Molly is a 9 year old Shih Tzu presented to the WVS Animal Hospital just before Christmas with blood in her urine. Her urine test showed that she had a significant urinary tract infection and Molly was given a two week course of antibiotics.

When Molly came back for her recheck two weeks later, she still had blood in her urine. Dr. Lisa was concerned that Molly might have a bladder stone or tumour in her bladder that was causing the irritation and inflammation. A quick radiograph of Molly’s abdomen showed two large bladder stones.
