"Stress” is best described as any adverse, persistent stimulus. So in exotic species this can include both psychological and physical stress.
Tooth Resorption in Cats
Chances are, if your Veterinarian has recommended that your cat have one or more teeth removed, it is due to tooth resorption.
Occasional itching is a normal protective mechanism. But when itching causes your dog to damage its skin, causes your pet distress, or disrupts the household, it can be a problem.
Welcome to our newest team member: Sinead is our lovely, smiley, new receptionist.
Jessie is a 13 year old female spayed Miniature Poodle who came to see us with vomiting and diarrhoea after eating too many treats. She was diagnosed with pancreatitis, which means inflammation of the pancreas.
When Michelle first started treating Max a beautiful 10 year old Corgi, in May 2015, his skin was so sore and weepy all over that he needed sedating just to examine him properly. Less than 3 months later he was back at the clinic for vaccinations and he was a new dog!
Elaine got a B+ in her exam recently and now has a postgraduate certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology from Massey University!!
“Eros” a beautiful but very sad 6 year old Samoyed was brought to the clinic by his concerned owners because he was lethargic & had been vomiting for 24 hours
Thanks to some great nursing by both our vet nurses and his owners, Max has made a full recovery after being a very sick little dog.
We recently found a box of kittens dumped on our front door. 3 boys and a girl, tabby & white and a gorgeous black tabby, about 3-4 weeks old. Of course we all fell in love with them & vet nurse Nicole took them home to care for them overnight.
We are thrilled to have Debbie back from maternity leave.
Veterinary dentistry has progressed very quickly in the last 20 years and we now know that our pets feel pain just as much as their owners. Furthermore, dental disease causes damage to other body organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys, leading to decreased quality and longevity of life.
