Joey’s Pet of the Week

By admin | Dated October 3, 2013

Hey hey!! What happened to the sunshine today?!? I was having a lovely time outside and then I heard the thunder and it started raining and we even got some hail! You all know how I feel about rainy weather, so you can imagine the mood I’m in today!! I’ve finally given up on trying to go outside so as soon as I finish this I’m going to curl up on my chair for a nap and hope the weather has improved when I wake up.

Nurse Layne and Practise Manager Ange went up to have a look at my professional pictures at Uber Photography yesterday, and not surprisingly, they turned out AMAZING!! Hopefully we will have the framed pictures next week. I’ll let you know when they are here so you can all come in check them out. Did you call see Dr Scott in the North Shore Times again? If he keeps this up, he’ll be almost as famous as me!

It’s been a big week of paralysis ticks here at GVH. Unfortunately we had a gorgeous little Spoodle die on Saturday. His parents were unaware of what tick symptoms to look out for, so it he was too badly affected by the time he came to us. If you notice that your 4legged friend is off his/her food, is vomiting, has a change to his/her bark or meow, seems unsteady or wobbly on his or her legs, or seems in any other way unwell to you, we need to see them. If it is a tick, the sooner we start treatment, the better the chance of their survival. If you haven’t already stated on our tick prevention, now is definately the time to start!

Aside from being busy with the ticks, we have also been busy with boarding animals. I love having lots of boarders, it means there are lots of kitty cats for me to talk to! This week, I thought I would introduce you you to a few of my faves. Firstly, we have handsome Kasper, an almost 16year old Tonkinese. On top of being a senior man, Kasper is also a diabetic which means he needs to have insulin injections twice a day. Kasper loves cuddles and is a champion at having his injections. Next we have Jingles, an almost 7year old moggy. Jingles is super affectionate and has a lovely singing voice! Next up is Peri, a 9year old Persion. Peri was a rescue cat and none of us can work out why someone would give her up! She is a super cuddly lady who licks us when we brush her! Next up is an old friend of mine, Ginger Ninja, a 17month old moggy cat. Ginger Ninja and I get into all sorts of mischief together when he comes to holiday. We usually both need a holiday from his holiday!! Lastly, we have Frazer, an 11year olf Maltese cross. Frazer was actually booked in to board at one of the kennels while his family were away, but he got sick with pancreatits a few days before they were due to leave, so Frazer got to spend his holiday here. Frazer is a super cheeky boy who likes to break into the bin when he is given free range time. If you head over to my Facebook album, Joey’s Pet of the Week, you can check out their pics. I have also uploaded a pic of Ruby, Dr David’s puppy, who is here while the Loneragan’s are in Fiji. Dr David loves it when we dress up the pets, so we put extra stuff on Ruby…

Ok, time for me to have a nap before I have dinner and go to bed. Hope you all have a great long weekend and I’ll chat to you all next week. Meows for now, love 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!
