Case of the Month - August

Introducing the incredible Harvey!

Harvey, a 14 year old Jack Russell Terrier X, is a long term, much loved patient of ours who presented in a frightening condition in mid June. His humans returned home one day to find him almost comatose. He had clearly had a few episodes of diarrhoea and was only barely responding to their attempts at stimulation.

Harvey's parents rushed him in to us where we ran a full blood profile which revealed Harvey was suffering from severe kidney and liver inflammation. So we immediately commenced him on intravenous fluid therapy and administered pain relief.

As the hours wore on Harvey began to respond to the fluids and pain relief and even started attempting to wag his tail and lift his head whenever we came by to check on him.
