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.
Cat Bite abscesses are one of the most common problems we see at all our Vets4pets practices. Unless kept 100% indoors, many cats will encounter this problem. Cats are very territorial animals and intruders are not very welcome. Sometimes it may not be your cat picking the fight, there is always a local bully around waiting to pounce.
