At Vets4Pets we have already seen a number of snake bite cases in both cats and dogs across the northern suburbs, including Angle Vale, Greenwith and Golden Grove. Brown and tiger snakes make up the majority of bites in South Australia. Snake bites are far more common in dogs and cats than in people; largely because our four legged companions don’t know to avoid them and think they are very exciting playthings!
Now that’s got your attention.
Our Mawson Lakes Vets4pets Hospital is now offering Radioactive Iodine treatment for cats diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism.
Cats diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism traditionally need daily administration of medication and frequent blood tests to keep the disease under control. However, with treatment using Radioactive Iodine, the cat is then cured of the disease and no longer needs daily medications.
The radiograph showed no abnormalities associated with her whelping (giving birth), but incidentally, we found a bright radiopaque substance in her stomach. We suspect Snooki ate a rock!
We are what we eat!!!

It probably was an exhausting period for the wee tyke and after such adventure and hard work delivering Easter eggs around the world, it would be a great idea to have his/her health checked by your nearest Vets4Pets rabbit veterinarian.
Summer and swimming pools go hand in hand. Just as we get hot our pets are also tempted to have a dip when they are feeling too hot. While most of them are keen to go for a swim when the other family members are in the pool, some get more adventurous and get in water while we are away from home.
