Ashbank Vet Centre endorses the concept of pet insurance to pay for those unexpected bills. Insurance allows you to treat and investigate conditions that you might otherwise find difficult to do.
Modern veterinary medicine, as in human medicine, is moving at an alarming pace and it is increasingly expensive to use the latest drugs and techniques, which can often only be carried out with the help of pet insurance.
As with all insurance, please read the policy terms carefully, to ensure that it covers everything that you expect it to cover. Policies vary greatly, and it is important to check the ‘small print’ prior to taking any policy out.
Should you require anymore information on pet insurance please contact the surgery and we will assist you.
Vascular Ring Abnormality
An 8 week old Weimaraner puppy called Mickey had gradually begun to vomit when he was introduced to solid food. The breeders were concerned as Mickey was losing weight. X-rays, using barium, were carried out to see what was happening when the pup swallowed food down.
This showed a birth defect at the heart base, which was preventing solid food passing down the oesophagus into the stomach. We performed surgery to correct the abnormality, and within a few hours post operatively, Mickey was keeping food down.
The breeders have become so attached to him that they have decided to keep him and report that Mickey is now a real livewire!
A Border Terrier, Moj, presented to us having eaten rat poison the evening before unbeknown to the owner.
Luckily, the owner noticed lots and lots of strange looking “blue poop” as the pellets passed through next morning and Vitamin K therapy could commence straight away.
After 2-3 weeks of treatment and monitoring of the blood’s clotting ability; Moj was given the all clear and told that, as a terrier, he is supposed to deal with the rats and not the poison!
