We've had a couple of dogs competing for the most accident-prone patients of Brunswick Central Vet Clinic since we opened, however one family of dogs must take the cake - Ellie, Chloe and Chevy have enjoyed their visits to the clinic so much that they keep finding ways to come back.
Ellie started the process with a walk at the park resulting in a ruptured cruciate ligament in her knee. This is a fairly common injury - this is the ligament that footballers often injure. Dr Alex repaired Ellie's knee and pretty soon she was feeling great and getting around well.
In the meantime Chevy had a slight altication down at the park which resulted in the need for a few sutures.
Later that same afternoon, not to be outdone, Chevy decided that a tumble down a cliff was in order. Amazingly she was relatively unharmed apart from a number of large thorns protruding from various parts of her body. Luckily a tree broke her fall but the tree was full of thorns! Her owner removed these and rushed her into the clinic with a slightly sore hind leg the only evident injury.
So with multiple trips into the clinic we thought the whole family deserved to be named as Patients of the Month - including Chloe who has been a great source of moral support for Ellie and Chevy and a great eater of treats!
