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.

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.
