October was very busy for our surgeries as many pets got affected by the winter-like weather and visited us for surgeries, flea and worm treatment and vaccinations. Here are some of our superpet highlights for October.
This sleepy lady is Shelley 🥰. She’s been coming to our Streatham Hill Vets branch to receive regular bandage changes and K-laser therapy treatment due to a non-healing wound on her hind leg.
Laser therapy is a relatively new concept in the veterinary world and we’re very lucky to be able to offer it here at Streatham Hill Vets.
Laser therapy works by using several different pulse frequencies that not only act as some pain relief, but also reduces inflammation and has biostimulation and antimicrobial effects. All of this increases the regeneration of the tissue.💥We use K-laser therapy on many of our patients for different reasons as it can help with a wide range of things. Not only can it help with soft tissue but also in our orthopaedic cases.
As you can see we have bandaged Shelley’s leg to keep it clean and dry to also help with the healing process. Our nurses love putting hearts onto our patients dressings❤️
Team Briar House Vets have been working hard with the wildlife this year and some of our favourites have been given the penthouse treatment with the use of the ‘Hog Hotel’.
These little prickles will be fattened up and taken care of over winter ready to be released in the spring next year 🦔💓
This is beautiful Jocko! Jocko is a diabetic dog🐶, Jocko requires daily injections of insulin at home which his loving mummy has been giving him for quite some time now. Jocko has been in with Mayow Vets to conduct a Glucose curve test, as Jocko has been a little under the weather.
This test allows us to check Jocko’s blood glucose levels throughout the day to ensure his current dose of insulin is effectively controlling his blood glucose. Jocko is no stranger to needles and had been a little 🌟 Diabetes can have a number of symptoms but these include polydipsia (drinking more than normal) and polyuria (urinating more than normal). As with people as long as diabetes remains controlled patients can live long, happy, normal lives.
If you are concerned your little monkeys may have these symptoms please do not hesitate to contact the surgery for further advice.
This little superstar is Chic🌟 Sadly he was attacked by another dog earlier this week and came in at Croydon Vets with an injury to his back leg. Poor Chic was very shaken up and sore😕
We clipped, cleaned and flushed the wound before placing 2 staples to close it. We also gave him pain relief and antibiotics to take home👩🏼⚕️
Fast forward to today and Chic is doing so much better and feeling much more himself 💚 We will see him (and his lovely jumper) next week to have the staples removed and check the wound has healed completely✅
