Creature Comfort: In Praise Of Veterinarians And Their Work

Welcome, everybody! I'm Yvonne and I volunteer at the local animal shelter. It is amazing to see how a little interaction can perk animals up. Mostly, there are dogs and cats, but we've had illegal pets too such as goannas, kangaroos, hares and even a fox! Of course, they can't be released into the wild. I am in absolute awe of the veterinarians who attend our shelter. They can treat everything from the largest Great Dane down to tiny turtles. They tell me that the animals are often abandoned because they appear to be sick; however, in most cases, a simple vet treatment does the trick. In this blog, I plan to sing the praises of vets and explain the ways I've seen them prevent and cure animal ailments. I hope there's something for both pet lovers and future pet owners. Thank you for stopping in.

It's not fully understood why this type of cancer develops in rabbits, but there's often a pre-existing problem with the reproductive organs of rabbits that develop this condition. Age is another contributing factor, with most cases of cancer of the uterus occurring in senior rabbits. This type of cancer is characterised by malignant tumours that form on the endometrial lining or within the deep tissue layers of the uterus. Read More

If you've booked the first puppy vet check-up for your pet, here are some tips to follow. Put effort into making the experience as calm and pleasant for your puppy as possible It is very important to ensure that your puppy's first check-up goes as well as possible.
