Mango, a young cat who has quite a story to tell!

By Janie Goodyer | Dated May 2, 2018

Mango, a young domestic long hair has quite the story to tell. He is a much cherished member of his family, but he has a passion for adventure. One day he decided to go and explore the local area, but became lost along the way and was unable to find his way back home. It was urgent that he was found as he and his mum were due to move to Perth. Unfortunately, after searching tirelessly for weeks, his Mum feared the worst and needed to go through with her big move across the country.

A few weeks after Mangoes Mum had made her move, we received a phone call saying that Mango had been found on the doorstep to his old home, and that he was not in a good way. He was extremely thirsty and hungry and had lost a substantial amount of weight. Mango was bought into Gordon Vet as was seen to immediately. Not only did he lose a lot of weight, but he also had sustained a serious injury to his leg. Mango suffered an open fracture to his back right leg where the bones were visible through the skin. Unfortunately, the wound became infected and necrotic as it happened while Mango had gone walkabout.

It is unknown how the injury occurred, and apart from an elevated temperature and his obvious injury, Mango was otherwise doing ok. He was given pain relief and his leg was bandaged until we could contact his owner, as Mango had not visited Gordon Vet before. The next day, after speaking with his owners we went ahead with some blood tests and x-rays to see the full extent of the break and to assess what could be done to help.
The x-ray showed a serious break and the decision was made to amputate, but Mango would need some rest and relaxation (and medication) before he would be well enough for surgery. He was in hospital for three days before vet felt that Mango was strong enough to undergo such a big procedure.

 

Once the amputation was complete Mango had another stay in hospital so that the wound could heal and he could get back more of his strength. Mango proved to be a very well-mannered hospital patient, and was very tolerant of all the Vets and nurses fussing over him during his time of such intensive treatment. It only took him about 6 days before he was up and walking around as if nothing happened! The time came when he was able to go home, but home was in Perth! His dedicated owner organised for a carer to collect and care for him until his staples could be removed and he was fit to fly. It wasn’t long before Mango was boarding a plane to his new home on the west coast! We wish Mango and his mum all the best, but hope he decides to settle for the quiet life!

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!
