Here is some ofOur Most RecentSuccess Stories
Piper Street Veterinary Clinic has countless success stories since we began over 30 years ago including many happy customers and more importantly animals!
Coco presented to the clinic with what appeared to be a non complicated urinary tract infection. After failing to respond to treatment, an ultrasound revealed small bladder stones and large blood clots within her bladder. Surgery was undertaken to remove the stones as they hadn’t responded to medical management, which was a successful procedure. Post surgery, Coco continued to urinate blood, prompting a culture of her urine. The culture grew two types of bacteria which were resistant to almost all antibiotics. Coco was admitted into the hospital and placed in intravenous fluids to increase urine output as well as daily intravenous antibiotic injections to get the infection under control. Coco stayed at the clinic for over 2 weeks, and improved daily. After undergoing constant treatments and medications over this period, Coco was discharged with no signs of infection. Coco has since not showed signs of reoccurrence of her urinary issues, much to delight of her dedicated owners.
Rebel presented to Piper Street Veterinary Clinic showing signs of mild chronic colic. After medical management (Intravenous fluids, antibiotics, oral fluids and oil, anti-inflammatories), Rebel did improve somewhat, and appeared more comfortable. After 2 days of treatment in hospital, Rebel was sent home with medications for the owner to monitor. Rebel continued to show mild signs of colic at home, and failed throughout this time to pass any faeces. On re-presentation to the clinic, a decision was made to undertake colic surgery to diagnose the cause of chronic abdominal pain.
During surgery, a faecolith (a hard mass of faeces causing an obstruction) was found in the large bowel. The faecolith was removed from the bowel and abdomen closed with no complications. Rebel woke well from surgery, and was drinking milk again within 2 hours. Rebel went home that night to his mother and never looked back, only dropping in 10 days after surgery to get his sutures removed!
Dilly was rehomed by one of Piper Street’s nurses after presenting with severe demodectic mange. After an intense course of weekly injections for the mites, along with regular treatments for her skin infection, Dilly gradually started to improve and regrow her missing hair. After approximately 8 weeks of treatment, Dilly was free of her mange. The photos are before and after pictures of Dilly. It is amazing to see such an improvement over an 8 week period.
