Welcome back to another addition of our monthly highlights special! This past July, your local vet team we all know and love have experienced a purr-fect plethora of weird and wonderful cases. Read on to discover our handpicked favourites the gang helped out in the last month.
Meet Rio. Behaviour issues? Say no more: our talented vet Maria at Corner Veterinary Clinic was on the case. Despite his anxious moments, Rio proved himself as a friendly bundle of fun, and Maria once again showcased her veterinary skills.
Maria advised behaviourist sessions to help with Rio’s individual needs, gave him a heath check and recommended the best ways to keep him happy and healthy.
If you need any advice on behaviour issues in your pets, please feel free to call the surgery. Like Maria, our talented team is always on hand to help with any questions. 0208 641 6126
We wish Rio all the luck and love 💚🩺
This lovely boy is called Marley ❤️
Marley’s owner quickly saw that something wasn’t quite right with them and came to the surgery straight away. Upon further inspection, we could see that a grass seed was lodged in his eye 👀.
Our vet Victoria applied a local anesthetic and carefully removed the grass seed. She then also stained the eye (hence the green tinge) afterward to see if the eye had been damaged.
Marley is now recovering at home and we can’t wait to see the cheeky boy for a check-up later on ❤️.
Grass seed season is in full swing, please check your pet’s paws and faces for any grass seeds. If you notice any please call us on 02086405766.
You can read all about grass seeds and the dangers to your dog in our grass seed blog here.
Xena has a special place in our team’s hearts❤️. On Friday she came into the Mayow Veterinary Surgery for her last chemotherapy dose. 🎉🐾
We’re so happy for her and looking forward to having cuddles with her when she comes for her regular ultrasound checkups.
Xena, what a star!🌟
🌟Lives by her name, STAR🌟
*Happy tears all round*
This little lady is well known by everyone at Mayow and is totally adored by us all.
Where can we even start with our Star? what a trooper! She’s 11 years old and underwent major surgery a few months ago to remove her spleen, this is called a splenectomy. Star had a mass growing on her spleen which meant, the best outcome was to remove it.
The BEST news we ever received was from the lab who analysed the mass, the mass was benign!
As you can see from this picture of Star and our vet Rachel, she is doing and looks amazing! She has pulled through and recovered like a soldier she is and still loves coming to see us.
The Mayow team are incredibly proud of you Star. What a beautiful and happy ending.🐶🐾💛
🐰 Meet Dash 🐰
Dash visited us as he needed his teeth trimmed.
Our Vet Katie trimmed Dash’s teeth and had a good look into his mouth after.
Rabbit’s teeth are continuously growing and usually, with a right diet the rabbit doesn’t need teeth trim
ming, but unfortunately, some rabbits need a vet intervention. 👩⚕️
Dash was very brave for his procedure, what a super rabbit! 🌟
This adorable rat is Eddy 🐁.
Eddy was rushed into the Mitcham surgery as he had been bitten by his playmate 😱. Thankfully the wound wasn’t too deep and our vet Victoria was able to carefully clean and glue it.
Eddy is back to his happy playful self again and we can’t wait to see him again soon ❤️.
This cutie is Banger🥰! He came to the Streatham Hill Surgery as he got his tongue stuck in his favourite toy and couldn’t get it out! 😋
Unfortunately, we had to cut Bangers toy in order to free his tongue as it had started to swell and couldn’t be manipulated free.✂️
Banger had a light sedation to stop him from moving around during the removal which could have caused him more harm. He received lots of cuddles from our team for being so brave!!❤️
This fluffy fur-baby came into us after the dog walker noticed there was tick (type of parasite) on the eyelid which had led to some irritation.
Whilst ticks themselves can be harmless, they can however pass on diseases from other animals such as Lymes disease (which can also be passed onto humans).
We were so brave whilst our nurse Molly removed the tick using a specially designed tool that removes the body and the mouth of the tick.
In our fluffy friends, it can be slightly more difficult to spot a tick, so it’s always good to part the fur and have a look to make sure none are hiding away.
There are a number of preventative treatments available for ticks (which also cover other parasites at the same time), so please do not hesitate to call us for more information.
Coco was brought into us after his owner noticed he was passing blood coloured urine. To see why Coco was passing blood in his urine our amazing vets ran blood tests, took x-rays, and performed an abdominal ultrasound on him which revealed bladder stones ( see pictures below)
Coco had surgery today to remove the stones that causing irritation to his bladder and we are happy to say he is now at home recovering. Here is a picture of Coco post-surgery receiving cuddles from our practice manager Rob!
💚We hope Coco has a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him for his post-surgery check ups.
If you have any worries or concerns about your pet please give us a call on 02086743525
Storm came in to see our lovely vet Viraf at the Wimbledon Surgery after his owners noticed his ears were quite red and inflamed. 🙊
It was found that Storm has an ear infection. Ear infections can be cause by many things but in Storms case it is caused by an underlying allergy. It is hard to know exactly what Storm is allergic to without further investigations and tests. 😱
It was decided that Storm would need ear drops to help clear up the infection in his ears and well as a medication that will significantly reduce itching, and also decreases the associated inflammation, redness, and swelling of his ears.😁
We loved having Storm in with us and as you can see in the photos he loved coming to see us too. 💚
Juan Pablo was brought in to see our amazing Vet Viraf after his owner caught him eating a chicken bone off the floor while on a walking in the park.😱
It may sound harmless but chicken bones can cause some serious damage. The chicken bones could cause a blockage whereby they would not be able to be passed naturally as well as if they have sharp-ended after being chewed they can penetrate the stomach or intestines and cause serious damage.🙊
It was recommended to take an x-ray of Juan Pablo’s abdomen to see the exact location of the bones, the size of the bones and how many bones were in him.🦴
It was found that Juan Pablo had managed to eat at least 4 pieces of chicken bones and the best way to get them out was surgically. Juan Pablo was rushed into surgery where our amazing Vet Viraf removed all the chicken bones from his stomach.🩺
Juan Pablo was such a brave pup and was awake and recovering well soon after surgery (as seen in the photo with Viraf). Juan Pablo will be back in a few days time for us to check that he is recovering well. 💚
Tips on keeping your pooch cool during the summer If your furry friends are suffering during these long hot summer days, there are a few different ways to help keep them cool and comfortable. – provide them with a portable fan – invest in a cooling mat – keep them in the shade with access to cold water, you can bottle the water and refrigerate it – give them a Kong with frozen doggie peanut butter (please use doggie only brands as human peanut butter sometimes contains xylitol which is a sweetener toxic to our canine friends) – give them a tasty cold snack like a carrot – provide a small paddling pool in the shaded part of the garden If you’ve been advised any frozen products such as ice cubes, please take caution as these can be detrimental.
