Patient of Month

Here at Wilston Vet we like to share our interesting cases with you. Each month we upload one of our current patient’s veterinary treatments. These include intestinal surgeries, broken bone surgeries, diabetic management, infectious disease treatments and birthing complications (to mention a few.) We hope that you enjoy reading about these brave pets as they undergo their veterinary treatment. If you would like us to do a story on your own pet following treatment with us, please let us know as we would be delighted to oblige.
