2019 is done and dusted! We want to take this opportunity to thank our clients, our staff and our wonderful extended Lake Road Family.
It is only now we have had the opportunity to evaluate your contribution to the past year.
Did you know that in 2019 Lake Road Vet Hospital provided veterinary care to over 220 rescue patients in need and found new families for them?
We also provided free veterinary services for 249 wildlife patients.
Plus we ensured many of our staff trained in speciality wildlife care.
With your support we provided care, housing and support to the dislocated and injured pets sent to us from bush fire affected areas.
Our wildlife training was put into use for the injured possums, joeys, echidnas and other fire injured wildlife which came to us.
We now have some of the latest equipment needed provide life saving treatment to the smallest wildlife.
Lunch and Learn
The staff attended a Lunch and Learn session this week on Cytology. Lunch and Learn sessions give staff and opportunity to maintain their skills during work hours.
Staff are able to come and go to a session as their work allows. Sessions can be downloaded on the big screen or through smartphones.
What is Cytology?
Cytology is the microscopic examination of cell samples in order to diagnose external and internal abnormalities.
Lumps and bumps can be diagnosed through fine needle aspiration, skin scraping, impression smears, cotton tipped swabs and lavage depending on the part of the body to be sampled.
Cytology is a preliminary evaluation to establish initial diagnosis and to plan the next steps. It is not as invasive as a biopsy.
