Joey’s Pet of the Week

By admin | Dated November 7, 2013

Hey everyone!! How are you all? I’ve had a GREAT week! It’s been another busy one, which means that there is no shortage of people and pets around for me to chat to. And then on Tuesday I won the GVH Melbourne Cup sweep!! There were some pretty upset people complaining about me winning. Apparently they didn’t think that I would put the winnings to good use. I can’t see a problem with spending $30 on Fancy Feast…..

Little Ruby Loneragan is continuing to improve at home. She still needs to take it easy, but Dr David said she is getting stronger every day. Ruby being sick certainly made us all appreciate how stressful it is when your fur-baby is unwell. Because we spend our days with sick and injured animals, we do sometimes forget that that isn’t normal for everyone.

You will remember me telling you about our big friend Mogador, the 50kg Newfoundland we had staying with us for a bit of rehab after having surgery with SASH on both her knees. Well the day after Mogador went home, she managed to break the hard wear in one of her knees and had to go back in for more surgery with SASH!! The good news is that the surgery went well and Mogador PROMISES to be a good girl and take it easy this time around!

I’m super excited about my stars for this week. I always love when we have these guys come in, I spend a whole bunch of my time talking to them and trying to steal their food. We have stray kittens!!! These little ones came from a feral cat colony in Pymble and were brought in to us by a client who has been spending a lot of her time taking care of the feral kitty’s. We have two boys and a girl and they are about 5weeks old, which means they will be ready for their new homes in 2-3weeks. Dr John has given them all a health check and they are healthy little munchkins who are full of beans and mischief! I know I say this every time we have kittens, but I’m pretty sure these are the cheekiest kittens we have had! They have two speeds, crazy monkey or flat out sleeping! They do give amazing cuddles and don’t seem to be bothered by dogs. If you are in the market for a new feline friend, pop in and meet the little possums. The adoption fee for the little lady is $350 and for the boys it’s $250. This includes two vaccinations, desexing and microchipping and their initial worming and flea treatments.

I finish off each week saying this, but please make sure you are applying tick prevention to your pets. We sadly lost a little tick paralysis case last night, so it’s important to be extra vigilant at this time of year with your preventions. If you have any questions about what you should be using, please feel free to pop in and see us or give us a call. And be sure to head to my Facebook album to check out the pics of the kittens. Enjoy the rest of the week and I’ll catch you all next week. Meows for now, love from Joey xoxo

I took our little girl Coco for her very first vet visit yesterday. Dr Helen gave Coco a thoroughly check-up and provided me with useful information as the first time puppy owner. Coco is now enrolled in the puppy school and will return back for her 2nd vaccine in a couple of week!

Dr David and the team have provided real care, support and expertise for our furry family members over 25 years. They've also readily taken in injured wildlife. A great team of Vets and nurses - thanks for all you do!

Quality care and advice at every visit. The staff are friendly and informative and genuinely care about your pets. I am 100% confident that my cat and dog always receive the best pet healthcare and as pet parents that's all we want.

Gordon Vet has looked after my golden retriever since she was 9 weeks. Everyone has been amazing and caring with lots of experience. I have been able to ask any questions and always been welcome. Even one day when she stepped on a bee in the evening, they stayed open until we got there and helped her get it out. Thanks to all the staff :-)

Exceptional veterinary hospital. I have been taking my dog here for many years and although I now live in the Eastern Suburbs, I still drive across town to see the Vets at Gordon. The staff are highly skilled, compassionate, friendly and helpful. My 9 year old dog has had 2 knee operations (1 on each knee!) and the outcome of these surgeries far exceeded my expectations. I have been incredibly impressed with the care provided during all of our visits. I would highly recommend Gordon Vet Hospital.

Fantastic and friendly staff who you can tell really care about your pet. Their follow up service is also very reassuring. I also board my cat with Gordon Vet and I feel very comfortable to know he's in safe and caring hands. I'm so glad I found this clinic.

Compassionate, caring and highly skilled veterinary surgeons who treat their patients and owners with respect. The nursing and administration staff are efficient and remember their patients by name which is a lovely touch. A lovely vet practice which despite our Golden Retriever Finn’s complex medical history, is always welcoming to him and he never displays any signs of anxiety when attending. Dr Helen is lovely and a firm favourite of ours!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!
