🦆Duckys Dining Disaster🦆
Meet Ducky, a stunning little calico lady with a terrible habit. Ducky loves playing with hairbands, like many cats do, but unfortunately Ducky also likes eating them. 🙀
Duckys lovely owner noticed that Ducky had been vomiting...and vomiting A LOT!
Upon arriving to the hospital Dr Donna quickly identified the problem...Ducky had eaten nearly 30 hairbands and they had become stuck in her stomach and intestine! On her xray you can see the squiggly mass of hair bands in her stomach as well as some further down in her intestine.
She was quickly taken to surgery and all of them were successfully removed, plus a couple of leaves off a fake plant!

Lucky Ducky has recovered beautifully from her procedure, and hopefully she doesn't snack on any more hair ties in the future!

Today is INTERNATIONAL CAT DAY which was created by the International Fund for Animal Welfare to raise awareness to learn about ways to help and protect cats.

One way is learning the signs for Osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis in cats can impact a cat's quality of life, both physically and emotionally, and cat's are really good at hiding their pain.

Could you tell the signs of osteoarthritis in your cat through their activities and behaviours?

Check out our website for a checklist and more information on this degenerative joint disease:- gungahlinvet.com.au/petcare-pointers/osteoarthritis-in-cats/

We can help develop a treatment plan suitable for your cat.
