just to update – the cat has been found -and been reunited with his family ! :))))
Another poor cat been shot – this time in livingston – jones green a .22 rifle been used :(((((
Poor matt the labrador – his blood results are back and has Cushings disease –???? it is amazing how lightning strikes twice – same owner had another dog with the same condition – but now at least the treatment isnt as difficult to manage 🙂
Poor matt was in today for blood tests – he takes it all in his stride as long as he gets a chewie treat when he is in 🙂
busy wee morning – lots of lovely pets in for a cuddle 🙂
This wee cat was brought in as and emergency at the weekend – he had been shot not once but twice with an airgun – one of the pellets is in his brain ! this is the second cat in a month from Armadale west lothian that has been shot the previous one has had to have extensive reconstructive surgery to his leg???? they should be banned
dandie dinmonts – arent they fun !
Wasn’t it great to see that wee dog coming out from the destroyed house !! everybody was crying …..
it must be dogs and cats are naughtier when it is windy !!
we have had some lovely pups in today !! on another subject – foreign bodies re-visited – one of the surgery puppies had been on and off sick for a week or so then brought up a largish piece of his toy that had gone missing two months ago – how lucky was that !!!!
It’s an unfortunate fact but fleas just love cats. Those of us that choose to share our homes with cats face the risk that our feline friends will bring fleas into our homes. Unchecked fleas can breed at an alarming rate. An adult flea can live for 3 months and produce dozens of eggs every day.
Adult fleas will jump on any warm blooded creature in the house to bite and feed on their blood. So that’s you, your family and your dog getting irritating bites as well as the cat. Fleas lay little white eggs which you won’t see, and pass little black flea poo called flea dirt that you will see as black dust in your cat’s coat (see the image below). The carpets, soft furnishings and crevices of our homes quckly become filled with flea eggs and the developmental stages of the flea life cycle, the larvae…

Don’t dogs eat the oddest of things – Morag the naughty Dandie D has just stolen and scoffed a raw potato – this is the wee dog that could be offered all the best dog nosh in the world but decides she likes raw tatties !! she hasnt read the nutrition books ! her mother Flora is not quite so odd as she does dog food however will steal peppers from the veggie box !
Oopsy – forgot to shut kitchen cupboard securely and Matt the labrador sneaked in and nicked a bag of pizza mix – while his friend Flora the Dandie ( who had taught him this trick ) stole a luckily empty box of toblerone ( someone had left it there with the empty box just pretending that there was some left ha ha ) – they are so naughty but …..fun all the same we woudnt be without them …… only sometimes when Morag the toerag does a whoopsy under the ironing table and you stand in it in your bare feet – yeuch !!!!
still on the subject of foreign body eating dogs – did anybody see the xray of the dog that had eaten a toy car – was in Scotsman on saturday – the joke was- was it a corgi ?? the dog was fine but would think all toy cars would be removed from the vicinity !
Every so often in Veterinary practice, a case comes along that just makes you say Wow! That’s amazing!
On Valentine’s day this year, one such case occurred involving Socks the curious kitten. Now Socks is only eight weeks old so everything he does is rather new. Like most kittens he’s born with all these pre-programmed hunting moves like ‘pounce’ and ‘swipe’, but you’d think he’d need some practice before actually catching anything. It seems Socks was a bit of a prodigy when it comes to hunting. He spied a mouse, and the mouse looked good. He crouched, he pounced, he had the mouse in his jaws! Socks thinks ‘what now?’ there was nobody to ask, and he dare not let go. Bite, chew, swallow, gulp, choke, swallow, choke. Is this what hunting success feels like? I don’t feel so good.
By the time Socks arrived at the practice he was definitely…
