Action shot of my two having their lunch in their favourite puzzle feeder 👍 Thanks @happygoluckypaws for the amazing treats! Home made dehydrated chicken and barramundi goes down a treat 🐷 #yum#enrichment#cat#catbehaviour
Maurice the super cute cocker spaniel suffers from a compulsive disorder. He gets anxious when people or dogs walk past or come into the house and these things often act as triggers for his behaviours. Luckily his family are very dedicated and have made huge progress in 6 weeks :) He's also on some anxiolytic medication to help him. #cockerspaniel#dog#anxiousdog
Stella loves life in her house. However, she gets overwhelmed easily when outside and finds new things pretty scary. It'll take some time, however she is lucky to have committed parents to help her with the medication, management and slow behaviour modification needed to help her progress #cute#rescuedog#cookiefeedernotpackleader#vetlyfe
Meet Sparky! He was a lot happier in the consult than he looks in the photo- promise! Sparky loves being at home with his humans but gets very anxious when left alone. Luckily he has some very understanding owners who want to help him realise being alone is not as scary as he thinks! #cookiefeedernotpackleader#spoodle#rescuedog#vetlyfe
Meet Buddy 🐶 He is a rescue dog who is relaxed and chilled in the house. However, he finds life outside the safety of home a bit too scary after a traumatic event a few months ago. Today we have formulated a plan involving medication and management to help reduce his anxiety 🙌 #dog#dogsofinstagram#rescuedog#anxiousdog
Thanks for a fabulous first day of conference @deltasociety . I had a great time educating some really lovely dog people on cats! 😻 special thanks to @mojodudu 's Mum, @happygoluckypaws and @the_dog_brigade for being the best cheerleaders! #insideofadog#deltainstitute#vetlyfe#alwayslearning
Oh hi there Tara 😻 at our first consultation, Tara was a bit too anxious to come and say hello. But today she was feeling a bit braver 🙌
I've been helping Tara and her sister Mica learn how to live together again after a big fight a few months ago. It's taken time, but they can now eat next to each other with no anxiety. The next steps involve adding some challenges to our desensitisation program 👍 #cats#blacktabby#vetlyfe#veterinary
Meet super handsome Clooney! Clooney has started to find some new people a little anxiety provoking. Luckily for him he has a very dedicated and understanding family who recognised he was anxious and not just being naughty. We've started him on some anti anxiety medication and we are going to slowly start helping him realise people aren't quite as scary as he currently thinks 👍🐶 #irishsetter#handsome#dog#dogsofinstgram#vetlyfe#vet#veterinary
Thanks for the lovely picture @mojodudu!
Had a great session with Mojo and his wonderful trainer Dom @the_dog_brigade on Monday evening. Mojo is coming on leaps and bounds, and finally relaxed enough to offer me a touch during our session.
It's been a long road, with lots of dedication from his parents @melissacauchihairdressing, his amazing dog socialiser / general cheer leader @happygoluckypaws and his wonderful trainer @the_dog_brigade as well as some medication tweaking by me 👍 #goals#cookiefeedernotpackleader#dog#anxiousdog#vetlyfe
Very excited to wake up today to 500 likes on Facebook 👍 Thanks everyone for your support, it means a lot 🙌 Henry and I decided the best way to celebrate would be with a selfie..... #thankyou#vetlyfe#mainecoon
Little video featuring the handsome Henry ❤😻 I've had him since he was 8 weeks old and have practiced handling with him from an early age - picking up his feet and giving him treats. It has definitely paid off - here he is chillaxing for his pedicure 👌Remember regular handling is as important for kittens as puppies! #pedicure#mainecoon#floof
Waiting for everyone to join me 🙄 Had a great lunch time training session with Gladesville Vets today. We covered how to make visits to the vet clinic as low stress as possible 😻 Sadly because I had a consult this morning Henry my cat and handling demonstrator wasn't able to make an appearance with me 😿 But we made do with a cuddle toy instead! #learning#veterinary#vetlyfe#vettech#vetnurse#vetstudent
Meet Xander and Phoenix ❤😻 After living together for a number of years, a trip to the vet caused some redirected aggression between the cats. When I first saw them, they had to be kept separate when not under close supervision. Fast forward a few months and some careful management, behaviour modification, pheromone and medication use has helped restore their relationship. Lovely update picture from their owner today! #friyay#burmese#cat#catsofinstagram
