Star Pets!

Teddy

Teddy was brought to Kingsteignton Veterinary Group as he was having difficulty passing urine and faeces.

The vets did an ultrasound scan and found that Teddy had bladder stones that where also blocking his urethra. An operation was scheduled straight away to remove the stones. The bladder is a very delicate organ to operate on, but the procedure went well, and the stones were removed. Teddy went on to make a full recovery. He is now back to his normal and happy self.

Bladder stones are a collection of minerals and other materials. They can be heavy, cause pain and prevent an animal toileting.

Certain foods can encourage bladder stone formation. Teddy is now on a special diet to help prevent bladder stones from forming.

DJ

Say hello to DJ who has been to see us a few times for dentals. 

Did you know rabbits' teeth never stop growing? This can cause problems and pain when the teeth or spurs rub on the inside of the mouth. There is no way to prevent this; some rabbits are just unlucky enough to suffer this. 

DJ has been an absolute star and all the team have come to love him! 

Dempsey

Dempsey was unfortunately in a road traffic accident. His owner brought him straight to us as he was bleeding and had torn some skin near his chest. He also had extensive bruising and was in shock, but luckily didn't have any broken bones or internal bleeding. 

We put him on a drip straight away, with x-rays being taken before his wounds being sutured. 

Dempsey stayed with us for a few days so we could monitor him and provide medication to ensure a recovery that was as pain free as possible. 

Dempsey has been incredibly brave throughout his treatment and regular bandage changes, and has become a fast favourite with the whole team.

Ernie

Age: 1 year 7 months

This is Ernie, a wonderful Cocker Spaniel. He used to be a nervous and shy dog, but his lovely owner worked hard at training Ernie attending training classes, and with the effort they put in, he has become a confident, happy dog. He came to see us for castration and was a star patient! The nurses gave him lots of cuddles and enjoyed seeing him for his post-op checks after the procedure. It's lovely seeing the bond between pet and owner, and we feel Ernie deserves a big well done from everyone at KVG :) 

Gordon

Gordon came in to be neutered. Now that he is, he can go to live with his girlfriends without the worry of having lots of unwanted babies! His surgery was performed by vet, Tiziana and went well, and he met lots of lovely vet nurses who made sure he was comfortable and well cared for.
We really do love seeing your small fur babies, and with vet Tiziana currently studying for her exotic pet certificate, it's lovely to see more of them.
