Last month was another busy one for all our surgeries with lots of exciting and unusual cases coming through our doors.
With summer just around the corner and restrictions easing it’s easy to get excited. 🐶 🐱
With the lockdown easing, we’ve been able to restart booster vaccinations as well as important 6 monthly check-ups for our wonderful VIPs as we return to a ‘new normal’. Please contact your surgery and speak with one of our friendly service team for more details. 💚
Take a look below to find out more about some of the heart-warming cases from this month…
Meet Beautiful British Blue Bluebell who this month became one of the newest members of our fabulous VIP plans at our Briar House surgery. Meaning all of her preventative health care is included in a convenient monthly direct debit 🐾🐾
Not only will she get all vaccinations and flea and worm treatment included, but she also gets a 10% discount on any clinical fees AND 2 free consultations a year!! 👍👍
Vaccinations are very important for both puppies and adult dogs as they help protect your dog against some potentially fatal diseases, such as parvovirus, canine distemper, leptospirosis and infectious canine hepatitis.
With the increase of lockdown pets, it’s vital now more than ever to make sure your dog is fully vaccinated.
Here is sweet Milly. 😊
Milly came in to see our lovely vet Harriett, at our Wimbledon Surgery this month after her owners were concerned about a scratch on the side of her face near her ear.
It was found on examination that poor Milly has a hot spot. 🔥🔴
What is a hot spot?
Hot spots are red, inflamed skin lesions also known as pyotraumatic dermatitis or acute moist dermatitis which is an inflammatory skin lesion that is made worse by scratching. They appear quickly, ooze, and may contain pus.
Hot spots are often triggered by scratching, licking, or chewing the affected area. The resulting trauma to the skin causes inflammation and secondary bacterial infections. 🦠🦠
Milly’s hot spot was shaved to allow for better vision of the area as well as we gave it a good clean with antibacterial wash. Milly was sent home with antibiotics to help fight the infection as well as a steroid to help relieve the itchiness. 💚🩺
WOW, what a lifesaver! This brave doggo’s name is Ziggy ❤️🐶
Ziggy came in as he was feeling a little under the weather and his owners noticed him coughing after giving him a rawhide bone! 🦴🦴
They immediately called our amazing 24hr VetCare team and booked him in for an emergency out of hours consultation.
Ziggy met our fantastic night vet Alan! After examining Ziggy, Alan wanted to perform an endoscope examination. This means placing Ziggy under General anaesthesia and placing a camera down his mouth, into his oesophagus to enable us to examine his stomach and see if there was anything blocking his pathways. 💚🩺
Upon entering his oesophagus, a familiar bone was seen lodged in his oesophagus! The Raw Hide Ziggy had been enjoying. Alan, using his magic hands and techniques was able to carefully retrieve the bone from Ziggy oesophagus and carefully out of his mouth.
Ziggy went home once recovers minus his beloved bone. His owners report he is doing really well!
If you ever need an emergency appointment, please remember that our amazing 24hr VetCare team are always on hand and ready to treat our poorly pets 24hrs a day.
24hr VetCare, Vets that care 24hrs!💚🩺
We were very excited to treat this little guy at Manor Surgery this month.
This lovely fox was brought to us with a bad ear infection that was difficult for the rescue to treat, as trying to administer ear drops and ear cleaner is very hard to do on a wild animal, especially a fox! 🦊🦊
So our lovely vets Tanith and Sam sedated him, cleaned his ears, and applied a long-acting gel designed to treat ear infections in difficult patients 💚🩺
He recovered very well and is now back at the centre with his friends ❤️🦊
Meet the very affectionate Rizzo 😍 who stayed at our Blackheath Surgery this month, to be neutered by our lovely Vet Dom 😊
This is a very common procedure that is regularly done by one of our wonderful vet team across our group.
Rizzo was very popular with the team, as she was very inquisitive and would roll onto her back for belly rubs 😃❤️

This brave boy is major 💪🐱
This handsome boy is Major, he was brought into our Mayow Surgery as an emergency after being missing for 5 days. When he arrived home, his owner noticed he had a serious injury to his tail and brought him straight in
Poor Major needed emergency surgery to remove his tail due to the severity of his injury. Major was so brave after such a horrible time, being missing and injuring his tail – he was still being such a lovely boy
The good news is, Major is doing extremely well and was not bothered at all by his surgery.
Despite losing his tail, Major is happy to be home
