A wee little problem

By Helen Burns | Dated October 31, 2016

You’ve managed to climb out of bed in that Monday morning haze, however walking across your room you find your foot in a puddle. Aaargh. That’s not the start to the week that you needed!

Urinary tract issues, whether it is a lack of toilet training, incontinence or a urinary tract infection, are only too common in our pets. Fortunately, in most cases there is a solution, and you don’t need to load your washing machine up with pet bedding every day.
To help resolve this issue as quickly as possible, there are a few things that you can do to help us out. Firstly, take note of where the puddles are appearing. Is it in your pet’s bedding, or where they sleep and rest, or is it throughout the house? Is it against a wall or other vertical object, or in the middle of the room? And are they big or little puddles?
After we get the clues we need from their history, we inevitably need to obtain a urine sample, which we run through our lab machine, and analyse under the microscope. Fresh is best, so if you are able to keep your pet confined for a couple of hours prior to their appointment, without the opportunity to toilet, then we stand the best chance of getting a sample.

Hopefully together we can sort out their wee little problem!

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!

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!!! :)
