Joey’s Pet of the Week

By admin | Dated October 17, 2013

Having a little snooze after a big week of being the birthday boy

Having a little snooze after a big week of being the birthday boy

Hey everyone! How are you all? I’ve had such a great birthday week! It was so good having a day that was all about me. That pesky diet that I have been on was forgotten for the day, with there being extra treats and extra milk for morning tea from Renee at the grooming salon next door. I was a little upset that no one gave me any of the handsome looking chocolate Joey cake, but they redeemed themselves by giving me some Fancy Feast for afternoon tea instead.

We’ve admitted a lot of animals with tick paralysis since I spoke to you last. They are such awful things the ticks, so I make sure that I have a Frontline spray every 3weeks to help keep me protected. I hate having it done, but I’d rather that than get a tick. We recommend dogs have either Advantix or Frontline top spot every 2weeks during tick season, and that cats either have a Frontline spray every 3weeks or a Frontline top spot every 2weeks. Daily tick searches of your 4legged friend are also highly recommended.

Feel free to come in and have a chat to one of my lovely Nurses if you have any questions about prevention and searching for ticks.

My pet of the week is the handsome Milo, a 10month old Domestic Long Hair kitty who fell off a 5th floor balcony onto tiles and proved that not all cats land on their feet! Milo was a little sore and sorry for himself when he came in, which I can completely understand after a fall like that! He was still in good spirits though, and politely declined Dr David Owen’s offer of having an IV catheter put in so he could have his pain medications given that way. Dr David Loneragan took some Xrays the next morning, and apart from a few fractured ribs, Milo had managed to avoid any serious damage. We are keeping him in for a few days of observation just to be on the safe side, but it looks like he will be able to go home over the weekend!
Be sure to check out my Facebook photo album for pics of the handsome Milo. I have also put up some pictures of the tick cases we have in at the moment.

I’m a little tired after a big birthday week, and the weather is too terrible for me to play outside, so I’m going to have a nap. Enjoy the rest of the week and I’ll catch 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!
