    Default HELP! Doggy attacked by "pig dogs". Good vet surgeon in perth needed

    Hi all,

    About three weeks ago my friend's little doggy "Scratch" got attacked by two big dogs. They almost ripped him apart. He was rushed to vet (in Kalgoorlie) which only stitched him up, gave pain killers, did basic blood and urine tests and told Paul to wait. As dogs got Scratch by shoulders and shaked him very hard he has dislocated or broken both of them. One is pretty bad the other bit better. Doggy walks a bit but we can see he suffers a lot. Vet didn't even do X-rays . For the first two days Scratch had problems with urinating but from what I heard it's "OK" now.
    My friend is an older person and reckons that what vet says is always right however he sees his only friend suffers and would try to help him as much as he can. But it must be Vet who'd tell him what should be done, not us
    We think that Paul should bring Scratch to Perth for proper diagnosis and surgery if necessary.
    Could someone please recommend good vet/vet surgeon in Perth? Someone who would know what to do, do it in proper way but wouldn't overcharge him.

    Thanks

    If it was me - I would try to get hold of this person maybe, or anyone in the dog sport community in WA and ask them. Or I'd ring two or three different vet practices in my area and ask them to recommend someone. Or if there is a Uni vet course in WA - I'm sure there is, I would ask the Uni people to recommend someone. One of our uni vet training courses has a vet practice connected to it which is very good for tricky things.

    Hi Kate, what a horrible thing to happen to poor Scratch.

    there's a vet at Murdoch University, oh and I see Hyacinth has given the link for that one.

    I'm in the northern suburbs in Perth and have had only great service from Joondalup Central Vet, I've put the link here. The main guy there is Robert Adams, he was so much help to me, many years ago, when my little dog's eye ulcer was mis-diagnosed, and he very nearly lost his eye. Robert recommended an opthalmic surgeon who operated and Harley regained full sight. We have moved and I'm going to another vet at the moment, but will be returning to this vet as I find him very thorough, gentle with animals and it's a small practice that isn't in it for the money...

    On the link it says 25% off for new clients, so that may be incentive for your friend. Joondalup Vet | Joondalup Central Veterinary Hospital | Connolly Vet Hospital Currambine Ocean Reef Edgewater Heathridge Kinross Carramar Tapping not vetwest ausvet joondalup

    Hope Scratch gets sorted, poor little love.

    Thank you for the link.

    Did a bit of research yesterday and Joondalup Vet has the best reviews so I think we'll go there as soon as Scratch get here. We are in Cannington so it's quite far, but well... what wouldn't you do for your friend

    Hope they'll be able to help him. It's so upsetting looking at him now, how he suffers

    Oh I hope he can get some treatment and be comfortable again, it must be horrible to be in pain.

    If you go there, make the appointment with Robert Adams. They're open till 7pm at night if that helps.
