There are many things to consider when your pet has undergone surgery.
One of the most important factors is how to prevent interference with the wound. Cats and dogs often will not be able to resist the temptation to lick the wound. Patient interference is the most common cause of post-operative complications for routine procedures such as neutering.

If allowed to lick, your pet could very easily introduce bacteria into the wound which can cause a nasty infection! ๐Ÿค’๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป

There are a few different options available when it comes to preventing your pet being able to reach their wound....
Buster collars are great in the respect that it protects the wound no matter where it is on the body. Inflatable collars are also available but are not normally appropriate for many cases, especially for dogs with long noses.
Medical Pet Shirts are great to protect wounds on the abdomen or back. They are comfortable and are usually tolerated a lot better than buster collars. They come in a range of sizes to fit most breeds too!

If your pet is to undergo surgery, please speak to one of our vets or nurses to discuss which product would work best for your pet! ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ

Yesterday we received this lovely video and message from Cieraโ€™s owners ๐Ÿ˜Š.
โ€œFrom a very poorly dog to this.
With thanks for saving our 10 year old Retriever
You are the most amazing people and the best vets !!!!โ€

Unfortunately Ciera was struck down with severe Haemorrhagic Gastroenteritis and became very poorly quite quickly ๐Ÿ™. Luckily her owners were quick to act and brought her down to our emergency surgery where she received life saving fluids and antibiotics.

Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis in dogs occurs when large amounts of fluid seeps into the gut. Itโ€™s not known precisely what causes all cases of HGE in dogs, but it can lead to severe vomiting and bloody diarrhoea.

HGE can be a life-threatening condition. Untreated, it can quickly lead to hypoglycemia, which is low blood sugar, or hypovolemic shock, which occurs when a dogโ€™s blood or fluid levels drop dramatically.
โš ๏ธWe have seen a lot of cases of this lately so please make sure to see your Vet as soon as your dog shows signs of diarrhoea or vomiting. It can then be dealt with quickly before your dog starts to deteriorateโš ๏ธ

This is Abu! ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ’

He is a Ring-tailed Lemur who has undergone surgery at Somerset Road to repair a wound on his tail.

Abu is recovering well from his operation and is enjoying a delicious fruit platter. As you can see, he is a big fan of grapes! ๐Ÿ‡ ๐Ÿ˜†

Lambing season is upon us!
At Donaldson's, we have already been called out to assist with several lambings! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

At this time of year, the fields are full of heavily pregnant ewes. It is therefore extremely important to make sure dogs are kept on the lead at all times when out walking in the countryside around sheep.

โš ๏ธAllowing your dog to chase sheep is a criminal offence! โš ๏ธEven if the dog doesn't bite the sheep, the stress of being chased could easily cause a pregnant ewe to abort her lambs.
Any dog is capable of chasing sheep, regardless of breed and temperament.

After the Christmas feasting, many UK adults set themselves a New Years resolution to lose weight and improve their fitness. However, it may also be worth assessing your petโ€™s body condition as well! Our dogs and cats often over-indulge on treats over the festive period too! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ„

A large proportion of cats and dogs in the UK are considered obese and like humans, this can lead to several debilitating health problems.

If you are concerned about your petโ€™s weight, please book an appointment to discuss this at your local branch for one of our Registered Veterinary Nurses! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ
