Our Vet team are constantly learning new skills, and this week had a training session at both Gipsy Road and Clifton Road clinics with Rachel Perry, an RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Dentistry.
She ran a practical session to update them on new techniques, nerve blocks and dental X-rays so that they can offer an even better service to our patients.

This helps to diagnose resorptive lesions, root abscesses, or fractures of the teeth or jaw.
BRAVE TESS RECOVERS FROM FRACTURED PELVIS
Tess was hit by a car one morning and rushed into the clinic. An X-ray showed she had fractured her pelvis, and she was in a lot of pain. She was kept in the hospital for a few days, treated for shock and given plenty of pain relief.
Luckily, she had the rare type of fracture that did not need surgical intervention, and she went on to recover over the next few weeks, with plenty of loving care from her owners at home, and is now raring to go again!
This is Tess a few weeks later on – going so fast that it was incredibly hard to get a good photo of her!

Wow – the white stones are clearly visible in Scooter’s Xray, leaving almost no room for any urine in her bladder!
