Prinny- An Itchy Scratchy Ordeal

Prinny- An Itchy Scratchy Ordeal

Name: Prinny
Species: Feline
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Sex: Female – Speyed
Age: 2y 6m
Current Weight: 3.8kgs

History: Prinny is a lovely cat with a gentle temperament. Prinny first presented to Wilston Vet when she was 1y 6m age as her owners had noticed that she was starting to develop a severe generalised dermatitis. It was the end of Spring and Prinny had just recently started to lick and scratch at her fur and some fleas and flea dirt were also noted. (Fleas are a common problem all year around, however often are most prevalent in the Spring and Summer months.) Some animals can develop a condition called ‘flea allergy dermatitis’ which can cause a generalised itch and discomfort even from the bite of one single flea. Flea prevention had been applied to Prinny prior to her visit, however she had continued to lick and scratch at her fur.

Stolen Giraffe

Stolen Giraffe

HELP US FIND HENRIETTA! Last night brazen thieves stole our 120 kg bronze giraffe “Henrietta”. She has been gracing the entrance of our surgery for three years and George(our other giraffe) is missing her terribly. If you saw or heard anything PLEASE call us asap on 33573882. A 10 ft high giraffe traveling in the back of a ute would be highly suspicious, and hopefully someone saw something.

Lucy – The Old Feline With A Toothache

Lucy – The Old Feline With A Toothache

Name: Lucy
Species: Feline
Breed: Domestic Long Hair
Sex: Female – Speyed
Age: 15y 8m
Current Weight: 2.9kgs

History: Lucy is a much loved patient here at Wilston Vet. She presented to the clinic to see Dr Kate as her appetite had recently decreased and she seemed to be losing weight. A complete blood profile had been performed earlier in the year and happily her results had been normal, ruling out many of the causes for weight loss and reduced appetite in older felines.
