What we’ve been up to
This is Bonnie.
Bonnie is one of our diabetic patients and we had her in the surgery yesterday for a routine glucose curve to check that her blood sugar levels are stable. She is always a very good girl with us and enjoys the fuss and attention from the nurses. 🐶 ... See MoreSee Less
Ahhhh. Our Bonnie baby. She always knows which crate is hers too!! Excellent service or in her case- hotel service. X
Today at the practice we had this little chap in for castration. While he was in we also placed a microchip which means that he can always be tracked back to his owner should he go wandering. We wish little woodhouse a speedy recovery! 😺 ... See MoreSee Less

Steed came to visit us back in February when his owners noticed he was lethargic and not wanting to play. (Very unusual for Steed!!!)
After an examination with the vet it was discovered that Steed had an incredibly low heart rate and also a heart murmur. Blood tests were performed and Steed was booked in for an ECG and ultrasound the following morning.
Upon completing the ECG it was apparent that Steed had a very abnormal heart rhythm and needed an emergency referral to Langford Veterinary Hospital to be fitted with a pace maker under general anaesthetic.
Nearly a month on and Steed is doing well and well on the road to recovery. He is now very happy to start exercising again with short lead walks. We wish Steed a steady recovery and hope to see him back to his bouncy self soon! ... See MoreSee Less

Last week at the practice we had our nurse’s dog St John (Bin) in for laser treatment on his hips.
Bin is coming up 14 years old and like many older dogs he suffers from Osteoarthritis.
Laser therapy is a painless treatment and doesn’t require any form of sedation. It can be used to help reduce pain and inflammation, aid healing and improve mobility.
This treatment can be used for many ailments, not just Osteoarthritis but also post operative surgical wounds and also soft tissue injuries.
As you can see Bin was very relaxed and happy during his treatment and after roughly 10 minutes it was all done! ... See MoreSee Less

Incredible results - I intend to clean his teeth EVERY day from now on...thank you so much!
What a cute teddy face !
Yesterday we had a very unusual patient brought into us after being discovered inside a lady’s house. After investigations to identify what kind of snake he was (a grass snake), our vet Charlotte performed some delicate surgery to remove debris that was stuck to the little guy, causing him not to be able to open his mouth correctly. This was successful and later that afternoon the little guy was collected by Secret World Wildlife Rescue to continue his care before being released back into the wild. ... See MoreSee Less
