Lucy is the sweetest 11 year old cross-breed Jack Russell Terrier.
A couple of weeks ago Lucy’s owners became worried when Lucy didn’t want to be picked up and would yelp in pain when done so, she also wouldn’t touch any of her food.
Lucy’s condition worsened when she started to involuntarily shake as well as losing control over her muscle movements (ataxia).
We proceeded to do x-rays to help us determine what was going on with Lucy. Unfortunately, nothing obvious presented on the x-rays so Lucy was referred for an MRI.
The results of the MRI showed that an intervertebral disc was causing mild compression of Lucy’s spinal cord, and this compression was likely to be causing her clinical signs. A decision was made to rest Lucy and give her pain relief and anti-inflammatory drugs. Lucy has responded well to this treatment and is now walking much better.
Skye is a 9 year old Siberian Husky cross who came to us when her owner noticed one of her nipples had become enlarged. On inspection Jeremy found multiple masses on both sides of her body, many suggestive of mammary tumours. Skye was booked in for further investigation where we took blood samples and chest x-rays to look for possible metastases. Thankfully, there was no evidence of any, so we removed the four masses on one side of her tummy, and allowing those wounds to heal for a few weeks before taking off four from the other side! She must be getting used to the attention, as she now lies on her back for Jeremy to look at her stitches when she comes into the consulting room. What a sweetie she is!
Pet of the Month for August is Dave!
Pets of the Month for July are Freddie and Herbie!
We had double trouble with a pair of unrelated Labradors last month! In separate incidents in the same week, these playful 1 year old Labradors gave their owners quite a scare after mistaking stones on the beach for tasty treats! Freddy and Herbie were brought to us in a lot of distress, and x-rays soon showed the stones were stuck in their small intestines with no chance of passing through naturally, so Veterinary Surgeon Jeremy Miller surgically remove the stones. The operations went smoothly and Freddy and Herbie soon were enjoying the attention of our lovely nurses. We are pleased to say both Freddie and Herbie have now made full recoveries, and hopefully sticking to a more palatable diet!

Pet of the Month for June is Bruce!
Poor Bruce was left fighting for his life this week after being caught up in an illegal snare. This ten month old little Burmese was brought in to All Pets Veterinary Centre with a severely swollen face and neck and blood dripping from his mouth. Although an incident involving a car was initially suspected, it was soon discovered that Bruce had been caught in a snare. The snare had tightened so closely around Bruce’s neck that it was not clearly visible to the naked eye. On removal by Veterinary Surgeon Jeremy Miller, the snare was only 4cm in diameter or about the size of a small child’s bangle, and eventually would have resulted in strangulation. Bruce suffered serious lacerations to his tongue from trying to free himself and surgery was required to repair the damage caused. The surgery went well and All Pets are happy to report that Bruce will make a full recovery and is back at home with his owners.
The incident has since been reported to Jersey Police and Snarewatch.org in an effort to raise awareness of the damage these barbaric traps can cause. Pet owners are warned to look out for such traps and report them to States Vet if found.
Pet of the Month for May is Lily
A very poorly Lily was rushed into the All Pets surgery suffering from severe lethargy and collapse.
She was found lying in the garden in the rain by her very worried owners. She could hardly stand, was breathing heavily, and seemed on her way out.
Lily was immediately put on fluids and given medication to make her more comfortable while we tried to figure out what was wrong. After some tests we discovered that Lily had anaemia from ingesting rat poison contained within the mice she caught on a daily basis from a neighbouring garden.
We are pleased to say after several days in intensive care and a course of Vitamin K, a camera-shy Lily is now well on the road to recovery.
Pet of the Month for April is Jet!
Boisterous Jet is our April Pet of the Month. Jet came to see us with a very large mass around his inner left thigh. It was so large that it was obstructing his movement and causing him much discomfort. As it was below muscle level, the only option for Jeremy was to anaesthetise Jet and use liposuction to remove the fatty mass and free Jet from the excess weight that was preventing him from running around as he wanted. Happily the surgery went well and Jet is now making a full and comfortable recovery at home with his loving owners.
Pet of the Month for March is Jacques
Meet Jacques, a Brittany Spaniel, and our courageous Pet of the Month for March.
Four weeks ago poor Jacques underwent major surgery for laryngeal paralysis, which he bravely saw through without complaint. However, on his return home he had several sudden incidents of collapse. He was brought in to All Pets and Jeremy quickly detected an irregular heart rate as the culprit. Jacques was fitted with a special device called a Holter Monitor to monitor his heart rate continuously over a 48 hour period. He was extremely well behaved throughout, and he is now happily back at home with his loving owners awaiting further assessment and treatment. Bonne sante, Jacques!
