This little cutie is Bear! 🐶😍 Bear has a condition called Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (BOAS), which is a worrying but common condition in short-nosed breeds like English bulldogs, Pugs and Boxers. This syndrome can also make your dog susceptible to skin infections, heart and eye problems but the most serious threat to your dog’s welfare is the struggle to breathe, unfortunately, the condition can cause severe suffering and sometimes even death.
Luckily, our lovely vet Gabriella used her skills and expertise to modify his Airways via Surgery. One of the changes that was made to Bears’ airways during surgery was the widening of his nostrils (as seen in his pictures) to help him breathe a little easier. 🌬
Bear is now at home and we wish him a speedy recovery! We are looking forward to having him back for his post-surgery check-up in a few days.😊
If you too have a dog with a flat face or short nose such as pugs, french bulldogs and boxers, call our branches at Streatham Hill Veterinary Surgery or Briar House Vets to book a BOAS assessment with Gabriella and Enrico who have extensive training and great experience in diagnosing and treating this condition successfully!
Summer has arrived in the UK, however, our wonderful pets are more vulnerable than ever. With most parks filled with grass seeds and the temperature rising over 30 degrees on Wednesday, we should be proactive in taking care our pets during the heatwave.
When the days are hot, please take care of your little buddies by ensuring they have access to fresh and cold water at all times and try to limit your walks to early in the morning or sunset when it’s cooler. Heatstroke is a real risk for all our four-legged friends, so please check out our blog to find out more information.
As grass seeds are out with vengeance this year, make sure to check your dog’s paws and ears after every walk. To find out more about these Summer pesky visitors, check out our handy infographic.
Sweet Fred visited our Briar House Vets surgery for a rhinoscopy as he had suffered a very bad nose bleed. Introducing the camera up the nose (which produces an image on the TV unit), we were able to identify where the bleeding had started from and Fred was able to go home later that day feeling comfortable and happy!
Our award-winning surgeries Streatham Hill Vets and Briar House Vets have several different sizes of endoscopes which allow us to look into many different body cavities in a minimally invasive way. These scopes also enable us to do laparoscopic bitch spays – most commonly known as Keyhole Surgery
If you wish to discuss the laparoscopic procedure and book an appointment with our excellent vet team, please do get in touch and our team will be more than happy to help 👍👍
Otis visited The Manor Vets recently as he was really not himself. He wasn’t eating, was vomiting, very off colour and completely unlike his usual self. After some initial treatment including X-rays and ultrasounds we thought we could see something suspicious so decided to go into surgery! Luckily we did as we found a peach pit that he had sneakily eaten while his owners weren’t looking.
He is now doing really well at home and we have loved looking after him. He’s been a star patient 🌟
This is our lovely patient Byron who was diagnosed with lymphoma around 4 months ago. Byron has been visiting Wimbledon Vets every 2 to 3 weeks for his chemotherapy injection and has been doing well the whole time!
Lymphoma is a common cancer of cats and dogs that, if untreated, usually spreads quite quickly and kills our beloved pets. We are using “metronomic chemotherapy” for Byron, which means that instead of giving him constant chemotherapy every week, we only give him a little dose of chemotherapy every few weeks. This aims to not clear cancer, but just keep it at bay as long as possible so that Byron can still have a great quality of life and not have any nasty side effects of the chemotherapy.
Luckily for Byron, he’s doing brilliantly, and his owner has done a wonderful job of looking after him too!
