The Frankston Heights Veterinary Blog

Frankston Heights Veterinary BlogWith time, I'm planning to explore the whole veterinary world in the posts on these pages. Actually, that might be a little ambitious, but I would really like to talk about life as a small animal vet. Specifically, life as a small animal vet, in a busy suburban practice, where the underlying drive is to care for pets and their families. 

So much has already been written and broadcast about vets (think James Herriot or Dr. Harry or Bondi Vet), that there is a lot out there to read. I'm aiming for a, slightly different, more personal tone. I hope to shed some light on what it means to be a vet, and to show what goes on behind the treatment room door.

Please let me know how you think I'm going.

Thanks, Will

“Bad teeth” and “Bad breath” are two of the most common problems that we see in dogs and cats, they are also two of the easiest problems to ignore. Maybe people’s fear of dentists can be transferred to their pets too.

The cost of caring

Being a vet is the most rewarding job; nothing beats the feeling of reuniting a family with a pet who has recovered from a life-threatening problem. And we're lucky, because it's something that we get to do quite a lot.
