Out teams had an amazing time participating in two dog shows last Sunday! We are super excited that we got to meet many wonderful doggies and share kisses and cuddles with them! Prices, toys, plays and snuggles galore in Sunday’s dog shows!
Streatham Common Dog Show
Streatham Hill Vets was at the annual Streatham Common dog show and our team was amazed by all the doggies and pawrents that came to say hello, chat with us and get treats, a fresh bowl of water and many cute toys!
Of course, we couldn’t leave the show without taking as many lovely photos of your beloved pets as possible. To see all our highlights, visit our Facebook page! Thank you all for taking the time to come and see our team and we can’t wait to see you all in the next dog show!
Lakeview Dog Show
Another exciting dog show last weekend! Lakeview Vets was there and our team spent an incredible time at the annual dog show in Sandwich! Our vet and nurses, played with the beautiful doggies, handed our gifts and treats and became friends with all the amazing fur babies that participated in the dog show!
We took many photos of our new and old furry friends to see our best moments, you can visit Lakeview Vets Facebook page! Finally, we would like to thank each and every one of you for joining us and to Futures for Dogs for inviting us to such an amazing event!
In other news, it was a busy week for our experienced and permanent vet team! From emergencies to neutering and health checks, our wonderful vets were always on hand to help your beloved pets!
Check out Handsome Huggie…. he visited us with the sneezes…. and no wonder…. wonderful Enrico managed to pull this blade of grass from one of his nostrils!!! Huggie was instantly more comfortable and has gone home to recuperate none the worse from his ordeal 😍🐱😍🐱😍
See the third picture of him having his dinner lying down…. truly chilled out which is very typical to the Maine Coon breed.
A Plum Stone Removal
Marley is a rabbit that was brought in to see our vet Mark after not eating for 2 days. The owner was worried that he may have possibly swallowed a plum stone.
After giving Marley a mild sedation Mark was able to examine his mouth fully and found that the plum stone was wedged at the back of Marleys jaw and was stopping him eating and had also caused a laceration of his tongue.
Mark removed the stone and also trimmed down Marleys cheek teeth. Upon waking up Marley has been making up for lost time with eating some soft recovery food.
Fruit should only be fed to rabbits, as a treat, a maximum of once a week and all stones and pips should be removed first
Meet Murphy, the Giant Schnauzer, who had emergency surgery with us on Monday.
Poor Murphy was brought in to see our Vet Nikki as he was off his food, had been vomiting the night before and was lethargic.
After Nikki examined him and took an x-ray of his abdomen, it became clear that he had eaten something that he shouldn’t have.
Murphy was taken straight into surgery and Nikki was able to remove the object seen below from his small intestine. It is suspected that this object is part of a pine cone!
We are very pleased to let you know that Murphy is doing well with his recovery and is pictured below at his check up today 😊❤️
Two Beautiful Best Friends
How cute is Coco??🤍 Beautiful Coco came in for her first puppy health check!
Our wonderful vet Bridget wanted to make sure that tiny Coco was perfectly healthy, so we ran a few tests which indicated that Coco was a bit dehydrated!🧪
We gave her some fluids to make her feel better and then she went home happy and healthy!💉
Here, you can see that little Coco made a new best friend and they look so adorable together! 🥰
An Unusual Visitor
This lovely chap was brought in by a member of the public. We suspect he had had a knock to the head. Apart from being a little thin, he is otherwise very well and is very tame
He has enjoyed sitting on us and will even allow a stroke.
He will rest with us a while longer, then go off to a pigeon rescue charity
Contrary to unpleasant belief, these guys are exceptionally smart birds and not “vermin”
They are aware of space and time, were used as an essential messenger service during both world wars and mate for life – with both sexes co parenting.
They can recognise individual people and can decipher medical images!
