Symptoms of HGE can vary but include:
After 24hours of hospitalisation Archie started to feel better and was eating small amounts again. He will continue to receive medication to help him to feel better.
This is the lovely little Nala who was referred to Wimbledon Vets from Sutton because a vet had noticed she had quite a loud heart murmur. 💚 Our fantastic vet Viraf performed an ultrasound of her heart which showed that she has been born with a condition called a ventricular septal defect, or a hole in her heart! 🩺Luckily, this isn’t stopping Nala from being full of beans and hasn’t had any effect on her life at all yet! It is a relatively uncommon condition in dogs and luckily most dogs with this problem do fairly well long-term🐾 Funnily enough, the only other little puppy we have seen in our clinic with the same problem is a little Cocker Spaniel puppy called Simba!🤣
Poor Toto was at Blackheath Vets to have an exploratory laparotomy (surgical opening of the abdomen to examine the organs) because he hasn’t been feeling well lately. His symptoms included vomiting, diarrhoea, anorexia (not wanting to eat) lethargy and weight loss.
Our vet Dom discovered trichobezoars (hard dense masses of fur) in his gastrointestinal tract. It’s very common for cats to vomit fur balls and/or pass them in their faeces. Trichobezoar often occurs when there is an underlying health problem for example:
Due to this, biopsy samples were taken for testing. Toto recovered really well from the procedure and must be feeling so much better now they have been removed 😻
**Fact: in human terms, this is closely linked to Rapunzel syndrome!
This beautiful boy is Taki. Cheeky Taki decided that he was going to help himself to some leftover pork ribs. Despite being bright in himself, our brilliant vets at Animal Clinic decided to shoot some x-rays to distinguish if these would need to be surgically removed as they could lead to obstruction within the stomach and intestines.
To our astonishment, the rib had made its way through the stomach and into the intestines. Our vet Nicki was them able to palpate this rib bone out of his Colon under anaesthetic without having to enter the abdominal cavity. Taki is very lucky! Foreign bodies can often cause all sorts of problems but thankfully for him this wasn’t the case.❤️
This is Bob. Bob visited Melania at Croydon Vets for a dental procedure. During a recent consultation we noticed he had a feline oral resorptice lesion (FORL’s). This is when cells called odontoclasts start to destroy the surface of the tooth. It starts underneath the gum, making it very difficult to diagnose.
Bob is a polydactyl. Which means he has an extra digit. Bob has extra digits on both front feet making him even more unique than he already was. Bob says thumbs up 👍🏽 to the team at Croydon..
Meet Woody and our lovely Vet Francesca 💚Woody visited Mitcham Vets as his owners had noticed that he had very smelly ears👂. Francesca gave the ears a flush using a sterile solution as his ears were very gunky and weren’t responding to initial treatment.After a deep clean of Woody’s ears and a course of stronger medication he’s going home feeling much better.🎉 We can’t wait to see him again next week for his last dose of medication and some much-needed cuddles 🥰
Sweet Ben hadn’t been feeling himself so his owners brought him at Corner Vets for an examination with our fantastic Vet Aashima 🩺Poor Ben had previously had issues with his eyes, for which we administered medications but unfortunately, his condition deteriorated and he had vision loss in his left eye which was also very swollen 😥After a thorough examination, the Vet decided that an enucleation to remove his eye was the best thing to do for Ben. We are very happy to report that the surgery went well and Ben went home the same day with his loving family ❣ We will see him again in a few days for his post-op check and some cuddles for being an exemplary patient!🌟
