Welcome back to another edition of our monthly highlights special! Our teams have been doing some incredible work over the last month. Read on to discover our handpicked favourites the gang helped in the last month.
Meet the very brave Simba. 🦁
Simba was rushed in to see us at Wimbledon Veterinary Surgery in August after it was suspected that he had been in Road traffic accident. Poor Simba was unable to use his back legs at all.😱
Simba was admitted immediately for our amazing vet Viraf to stabilise him and to find out exactly what was wrong with him. Simba underwent x-rays and an ultrasound, it was found that Simba had dislocated his left hip and fractured his right hip. (as seen in first x-ray photo). 🙊
After Simba was stabilised and put on pain relief to make him more comfortable he was sent to our Streatham Hill Vets for 24 hour monitoring for a few days to ensure he remains stable and to keep his pain under control. 😇
Streatham Hill Vets did an amazing job and Simba was soon back with us for hip surgery. Our amazing Vet Harriett performed a surgery called Femoral Head Ostectomy. This is a surgical procedure that aims to restore pain-free mobility to the damaged hips, by removing the head and neck of the femur (the long leg bone or thighbone).🦴
Simba had a bilateral Femoral Head Ostectomy which means that the procedure was done on both sides. Simba had the right hip done first and then the left hip done 3 weeks later.(seen in the second x-ray picture)😱
Simba was an incredibly brave boy for both his surgeries. Simba is currently at home recovering for his second hip operation and is doing well.
Here is little bunny Maeve, who was showing signs of Gastrointestinal Stasis (Gut Stasis) when she came in to see our vet Mary.
After some intensive nursing and treatment by our wonderful vet and nurse team, we are happy to report that she is doing much better! 😊 Gut Stasis is a condition in which the digestive system slows down or stops completely.
Symptoms of this include lethargy, not eating, little to no faeces and/or a swollen stomach. If your rabbit shows any of these signs it is always important to contact your veterinary practice straight away.
Meet the very handsome Merlin.😱 Merlin came in to see us for his castration. Merlin was such a sweet boy as you can see in the photos of him cuddling with one of our VCA. 🥰 Merlin was up and about soon after his procedure and we’ll be seeing him in a few days to ensure he’s healed up well. 💚
🍭 Candy treat 🍭
This is Candy who visited our nursing team for weighing prior to her flea and worm medication being dispensed. Look how fluffy she is 🥰🥰
Adorable little Lola came in to see our lovely vet Dom. We couldn’t resist her squishy face & she enjoyed all the cuddles
Gorgeous Rosy is pictured here with the lovely Michelle who has known her since she was a puppy!!!🐾🐾
She is now one of our more senior patients and is always a huge hit with us all at Lakeview ❤️❤️ She was here with us for dental🦷 treatment because she was uncomfortable in her mouth and not eating. Rosy also has a heart condition and needed extra special intensive care from our experienced and dedicated Veterinary Team throughout her stay. She was such an amazing star recovering really well after having the painful teeth removed.
Raisin the bar
Look at the beautiful “ Zion “ he came into our Mitcham Veterinary Surgery as he managed to get hold of some raisins. Raisins and grapes are a poisonous threat to dogs and can cause kidney failure.
After inducing vomiting and sending him home with liquid charcoal he will make a full recovery. He was a pleasure to have as a patient and was very cheeky throughout the ordeal 🐶
Fun at the dog show
We had a fantastic time at the Friends of Streatham Common fun dog show last month!
So great to see so many friendly faces! 🥰
