Meet Ned, he can breathe easier now!
Ned is a beautiful French bulldog aged just one and a half, he is one of the breeds that are defined as a brachycephalic breed which means he has a short or "squashed" nose. Ned is affected by what we call BOAS (Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome), a condition that means he can find it difficult to breathe at times.
At home Ned was struggling to breathe during exercise and panting excessively, especially during the hot weather despite being a very active dog who loves his ball games. He was examined here at Macqueens by Dr Mario Antignani which also involved an exercise test which then identified him as being moderately affected by BOAS.
Mario performed delicate surgery to improve the air flow through Ned's nose and airways - enlarging his nostrils, shortening his overlong palate and removing his enlarged tonsils. Wow!
We are pleased to report that Ned has recovered very well and his breathing has since greatly improved.
Dr Mario is an official Assessor for the Respiratory Function Grading Scheme (RGFS), an exercise test to assess brachycephalic dogs for BOAS signs. For owners who are thinking of breeding from their pet or just have an interest or concern in their dog's ability to breathe properly then please do not hesitate to contact us on 01380 728505 and we can get your pet booked in with Dr Mario Antignani
The days of gathering and lighting our bonfires to celebrate and to welcome in the colder days are almost here. With that in mind, don’t forget that hedgehogs as well as other small animals such as frogs or even field mice, love to burrow, hide or just nap under cushy piles of leaves, wood and other bonfire structures!
⚠ Always check underneath your bonfires before lighting them ⚠
If you find any of these lovely visitors crashing on your party, gently move them somewhere where they won’t get hurt.
Happy Bonfire Night!
If you agree that your pets are part of your family, you know that finding someone you can trust, that takes pleasure in answering all the queries that pop in your mind about their health and well-being, that takes care of them when their ill, but also keep them protected so they don’t get sick, is not an easy task!
So, if you believe you have found that special someone that ticks every box, this is the perfect opportunity for you to show your appreciation!
For the 21st consecutive year, Petplan has organised the Veterinary Awards to celebrate excellence within the Veterinary Industry!
Nominations are now open, so if you’d like to recognise the dedication and hard work your practice, vet, vet nurse, practice manager or practice support staff have given to your pet and say thank you, this is your chance.
🎃 Are you ready for Halloween? 🎃
We hope you enjoy a spooky day with costumes, decorations, lots of candy and scary looking pumpkins!
But please remember to keep your furry friends away from our treats. Those delicious sweets often contain chocolate and artificial sweeteners (e.g. xylitol) which can be toxic to our pets. Sweet wrappers are also a potential hazard as ingestion of foil and cellophane wrappers can cause life-threatening bowel obstructions.
If you are planning to get a costume for your pet, please keep in mind that pet costumes should not compromise their movements, sight, hearing, and normal behaviour. Many pets are not comfortable with costumes and may feel very distressed.
Have fun and keep your pets out of trouble!
