Endoscopy and Laparoscopy

The practice has a flexible endoscope suitable for examining the gastrointesinal tract of dogs and cats. and a short rigid endoscope suitable for examining the mouth and respiratory tract of small animals.
The endoscope is a very useful piece of equipment and on many occasions avoids the need for major investigative surgery when a foreign body is suspected. Intestinal biopsies help with rapid diagnosis and are usually pain free.

  • July's Pet of the Month

    July's Pet of the Month award goes to Niko.

    Niko has just turned 1 year old and he was rescued by his owners when they were on holiday in Greece when he was just a few weeks old.

    Unfortunately for Niko, his first year was rocky to say the least.  Mr and Mrs Wright first brought Niko to the practice back in October last year for a check up after his journey into the country.  Niko was showing symptoms of kennel cough which needed to be treated and required vaccinating but otherwise was well.

    The following month, Niko started having seizures.  These started to become more frequent and resulted in Niko being taken to our emergency out of hours clinic, Vets Now, for treatment.  The following day, he came into our hospital for continued monitoring and support.  The seizures caused temporary hearing and sight loss, which was quite frightening for Niko but with gentle care and support in the hospital and at home, Niko's senses recovered.

    A few months later he started to have diarrhoea which despite regular routine treatments became persistent.  Other symptoms then started to occur including lameness and skin problems.  The vets suspected there was a likely link to all of these conditions and so Niko was booked in for a diagnostic work up which included blood samples, xrays and skin biopsies, all of which were sent to our external laboratory for testing.  

    Results showed Niko was suffering from Leishamiasis.  Leishamiasis is a parasite infection caused by the sand fly that is found in the blood and can cause a range of symptoms.  Although not endemic in this country, it is very common in Greece.

    Niko has started treatment for the condition and is showing very good improvement.  The condition will need to be treated for at least 6 months and will always be a threat throughout his life.

    Niko will need to be reguarly monitored throughout his life but is looking good and behaving like a happy and healthy dog.  Niko has been a pleasure to care for.

    WELL DONE NIKO!
