Millie the Labradoodle had to undergo surgery for a rapidly growing mass on her back leg.
Due to the size of the growth a large amount of skin had to be removed.
Post surgically, Millie had to endure repeated bandage changes over a period of weeks, which she tolerated remarkably well. In fact, she was the model patient! She has now recovered completely and is back to her favourite pastime: Frolicking on the sand dunes.
An exciting opportunity in our purpose built small animal practice in St Peter.

You will work a 38-42 hour week (negotiable) from Monday to Friday and alternate Saturdays (half day off in lieu) with evenings/weekends on call covered on a rota basis.

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!
