Here are some less common patients at the vet clinic

Recently, we had a lovely pig named Daisy who came in to be desexed.  She has a very friendly nature and coped well with being in hospital for the day.  In these photo's, you can see Dr. Lauren in the operating room performing surgery and Rachel, who was the surgical nurse and monitored the anaesthetic and the patient (seen here assisting with recovery post op) .

Next, we had a wriggly ferret named Lucy, (who lives on the same property as the pig) and she also came in to be desexed.  She was very sweet and really seemed to love the ugg boot that was brought in with her.  What a great idea for a ferret bed!

We also had a little lamb named Lamby come into the clinic on the same day.  Her eye was so badly damaged that it had to be removed.  She is only very young and we expect she will adapt well and live out her lambsy life.  The photo shows Dr. Lauren with the little baby prior to surgery.

These three animals all came in for surgery on the same day and we still had lots of other dogs and cats in.  We even had a chicken in the consultation room to see the doctor too.  We all feel very fortunate to work in a place where you can expect the unexpected each and every day.  We love all creatures great and small at the vet clinic.  Oh and another thing, one of the vets went to see a horse out in the field prior to doing the surgeries!!
