Question
Does surgery performed on injured animals not turn out as well as usually expected?

Answer
Hi there Luke,
sorry for the delay responding, we have been away on a family vacation. Do you have a specific surgery that you are wondering about? I think with any surgery it can depend on the extent of injuries and we are dealing with biological systems, so outcomes can not always be predicted.

Are there any specifics you can give me to help you a bit better than that?

Expertise

I am a vet with a special interest in dermatology, particularly allergic dogs and cats, behaviour and acupuncture. I work mainly with dogs and cats. If you are wondering why your pet is still itchy, despite good flea control, or why your dog licks his feet, I may be able to give you some solutions. I'm currently very passionate about behaviour and am doing some further education in this area. So if you have a troubling behaviour with your dog or cat, such as barking, leash reactivity, anxiety or a dog who is a little wild and difficult to control, I may be able to help you with some solutions.

Experience

I work in an area of Sydney where we see lots of allergic pets. I think behaviour problems are very common and I help a number of owners find solutions that will restore peace to them and their pets. Currently I enjoy answering questions, providing advice and writing pet care articles for www.lovethatpet.com

Education/Credentials
I graduated as a vet from Sydney Uni in 2006 and have since been completing my Masters in Small Animal Practice and am also updating my skills with a behaviour course through Sydney Uni.
