Finally, we announce the Winter Pet of the Month winner!

Frodo's Adventure with Lead Poisoning
Frodo is a young Ragdoll cat who arrived at our clinic one evening very depressed, trembling, and with no interest in eating and drinking. He had lost nearly 1kg, which is a lot for a cat! He suffered from a seizure as his shaking got worse. Frodo was given emergency treatment to control his seizuring, as well as urgent blood tests to try and find out why it was happening.
At home, Frodo's owners had been busy for the last 3 months doing house renovations, including sanding of lead paint. They had tried their best to clean up any dust, but it was feared that Frodo might be suffering from lead poisoning due to breathing the dust or licking it off his coat.
A blood test confirmed that Frodo had toxic amounts of lead in his blood, and we started a series of injections to purge the lead from his body. Frodo soon started to show signs of improvement. He stopped trembling, his appetite returned, and he put on weight! After many weeks of injections, and blood tests on his lead levels, we are happy to say that Frodo is finally back to his normal self.
So, if you are doing house renovations, please be aware that the old lead paint is not only toxic to humans, but also to our pets.
We are Best Practice Accredited!
