Casenotes Vol. 6 – Watch a keyhole spay operation

This week- an indepth look at what we do with a laparoscope, the problems with biting insects and vet nurse Danielle
We often get asked about the various ways of spaying (female neutering) a dog- so I made a video! The sun’s out (woohoo), but so are the insects (boo) so I’ve written a roundup on the common problems. Finally, Danielle is our vet nurse of the week.John

Video: How to neuter a female dog via keyhole surgery

Over the last few years keyhole surgery has become more and more popular. See what goes on behind the theatre door!

Insects suck. Sometimes.

It’s that time of the year when insects start getting more active- especially the bitey ones! What’s a Blandford fly? How can I protect my rabbit from flystrike? Why do wasps want to expire in my drink? Most of your questions answered in our blog.

Team Focus: Danielle English

I think we’ve got a wonderful team, and for the next few weeks I’m going to tell you a bit more about them. It’s Vet Nurse appreciation month, and this week we talked to Danielle:”I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2013 and have worked in veterinary practices for over 10 years.I always knew I wanted to be a veterinary nurse for as long as I can remember. I enjoy all aspects of my job but I especially enjoy looking after the inpatients and helping to nurse them back to health. I also like to build a bond with the patients and their owners and am very keen on nurse consultations and being able to offer help and advice to clients.I have a keen interest in canine behaviour and am currently undertaking a course to develop my knowledge in this area – the course really interesting and I look forward to completing it.Over the years I have come across many stray animals which I have taken home to nurse and hand rear – some which I have ended up keeping!! As a nurse, this seems to be part of the job :)I love my job and I find it very rewarding – animals never fail to put a smile on my face”
