The weekend is here once again and our hard working vets did their best to help all the animals that felt poorly. Blocked bladders, fractures and lumps are only some of this week’s highlights and our incredible team made sure that all our little patients received the best care throughout the week!
Poor William had to have emergency surgery with us last Friday morning, due to his bladder becoming blocked ☹️
We are pleased to report his surgery went well 😊 and William spent the weekend at our out of hours clinic in Thamesmead. He came back to us on Monday and is pictured below eating some yummy food 😁
There are a few reasons why male cats bladders can become blocked such as stress, infection and bladder stones. It is an emergency condition which requires prompt diagnosis and treatment.
Signs of a blocked bladder include:
If you see your cat showing any of the signs above please call our surgery immediately.
We are pleased to report William is continuing to recover well at home ❤️
Safe to say we were a little in love with this pair today! 😍
Brother and sister, Elvis and Dolly, came in to be neutered today, and stole our student nurse, Demi’s, heart!
They were the 🐱 purrfect 🐱 kitties and we’re looking forward to seeing them back in a few days for their check ups!
This big boy is Knuckles, he has been quite painful around his back and yelping out in pain.
Viraf took some x-rays and performed an ultrasound.
The results revealed that Knuckles has spondylosis in his spine and whilst having his ultrasound we incidentally found that Knuckles also has a small mass on his spleen.
Knuckles will join us next week to have this mass removed and we will give you an update from him.
To help with his spinal pain Knuckles has been put onto various treatments which will make him feel less painful.
This big boy has been a very brave patient with us.❤️
This is Dave….
Dave managed to fracture his femur (his thigh bone) and needed Team Briar to fix him.
So, Enrico operated on Dave this afternoon with the help of nurse Katie, who scrubbed in to assist, and with Nurse Mikyler running Dave’s anaesthetic.
Check out our pre and post operative radiographs plus some great shots taken mid-surgery!
Dave will stay at Briar with us this evening where he will receive pain medication and post operative care from our lovely vet Allison.
Dave is being the perfect patient for us and has rapidly become a Briar House fave 😍😍😍
