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.

Hendrix – The Kitten With A Broken Jaw

Name- Hendrix
Breed- Domestic Short Hair
Age- 6 Months
Weight- 2 kg

History: Hendrix was brought in one Saturday morning as his owner was concerned that he was quiet and not his normal affectionate self.

(Mind you, their dog is a Great Dane so that was very worrying as Hendrix is so little)
