This week we had a big catch up on birthday’s.
Last weekend it was Jenny’s birthday. We hope you had a great birthday, Jenny. Were you spoiled heaps?
This weekend it’s Nat’s birthday. So we hope you have a fantastic birthday with your family, Nat. Lots of pressies and lots of spoiling!
We finally caught up with Sonya and Shayne!
Shayne is back in the clinic having finished her exams. Shayne has passed the practical component of her exams, we just await the results of the rest of her exams. Well done so far, Shayne! So far so good!
Relay for Life
The Cancer Council’s Relay for Life will be on later in the year. Lake Road Vet Hospital have formed a team, the Labradoodles.

We’re walking for all those in our lives who are touched by cancer. Come on, join us!
Caring for Our Mental Health
Further to our Mental Health story last blog, here we are enjoying Christmas in July!
Sharing time with friends and socialising is so important to your mental health and to ours.
We had such a blast! Great food, great company and ugly jumpers! You can choose the ugliest!
Late Night Surgery for Dr Beth
One night this week, we had an emergency surgery, a poor puppy came in not feeling well.
Dr Beth and the team operated promptly to save his life.
It looks like he was a football fan as Dr Beth retrieved two socks from his stomach and intestines.
Not sure if he was a NSW or Queensland supporter but he sure is a Dr Beth supporter now!
A First for Shannen
Shannen successfully inserted a bunny catheter last week, that she was able to completely advance. Since inserting catheters is not easy at the best of times, inserting them into pocket pets is a tricky process. Well done, Shannen, on acquiring this specialised skill.
This is Pistachio, the newest member of our Lake Road Family. He belongs to Jesse, our Puppy preschool coordinator. He is a pineapple Green Cheek Conure. Isn’t he beautiful?
Congratulations, Dr Georgia!
Dr Georgia has passed the rigorous exams necessary for admittance to the Membership of the Australian and New Zealand’s College of Veterinary Scientists, in the subject of Veterinary Practice-Small Animal.
We know how hard you have studied and worked to complete this, Dr Georgia and we are all very proud of you! A great honour for you.
