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.
FELINE IMMUNEDEFICIENCY VIRUS (FIV) or Feline Aids is a virus that interferes with the immune system of a cat. It lives in the blood of an infected cat & is carried in its system throughout its life.
We have recently had a dog hospitalized at the clinic with Leptospirosis.
Lepto is a serious, often fatal disease that dogs catch from rats. Treatment requires intensive hospital care, which is made more difficult by the fact that humans can catch the disease from infected dog’s urine or blood.
This story is dear to our hearts: Mouse belonged to vets & practice owners Didier & Julie.
Blondie is a beautiful, sleek black nineteen and a half year old cat. We have known her at the Mill Road Vet Clinic since she was a kitten and have come to love her almost as much as her owners! Blondie was admitted to our hospital for a routine dental.
