Bronte was rushed to Vets Now Referrals early last Monday morning after she sneakily stole a 250g packet of granulated xylitol off the kitchen counter. She managed to eat approximately half of the contents before her owner managed to prise it out of her mouth. Within 15 minutes Bronte vomited, became weak, uncoordinated and collapsed.
Pepe is our eccentric rescue cat, the kids call him ‘white noise cat’ because that’s what someone once said when musing about what he might be thinking. This was his second trip to see the Vets Now out of hours and emergency team, so when he appeared one day dragging his leg behind him, I knew what to do.

Cookie – our lovable cheeky little rescue Boxer – adopted us in April 2011. For a couple of months, she’d been out of sorts from time to time (not keen to go out, or to have her dinner). She’d also lost weight. Our lovely vets at Ivybank Veterinary Clinic suspected Cookie may have an enlarged liver. Having carried out some test locally, they suggested Cookie be urgently referred to Vets Now Referrals for further investigations.
