I highly recommend Glenbrae Veterinary Clinic. I am a recent veterinary graduate from the University of Glasgow Veterinary School, and have spent a considerable amount of time at various small animal clinics as part of the course requirements. Glenbrae is far and away the most progressive clinic in which I trained. All the veterinarians and nurses are up to date with new treatments and protocols. They have diagnostic tools and services that many other clinics don’t have, such as, dental x-ray, which is an invaluable aid in providing the best dental care treatments, as well as, an ultrasound veterinary specialist at the clinic twice a week. Not only do they provide the most state-of-the-art conventional medicine, but, they also practice holistic medicine which includes alternative therapies, such as, acupuncture, laser therapy, and physiotherapy.
After spending three weeks at the clinic as part of my veterinary course, I decided to have my own dog, Fenton treated there. He had recently had his toe amputated at his old vets and then got diagnosed with a rare genetic condition called progressive cutaneous angiomatosis. The surgical site would not heal despite 7+ weeks of traditional wound management: rest, Manuka honey on the wound, bandaging, antibiotics, pain killers and then towards the end trying to get it to heal by going bandage free. Nothing was working and I was tremendously distressed, especially, since the veterinarian treating him postulated that his condition was preventing the area from healing and concluded that his prognosis for recovery was not good!
The holistic specialist and clinic owner, Wendy, saw Fenton. She is brilliant. She prescribed a topical holistic cream to use on the non-healing wound, a homeopathic tablet for healing and low intensity laser therapy at the wound site 2-3 times per week to promote healing. I was astonished and thrilled with the results! The low intensity laser treatment worked so well, that significant healing could be seen in just four days! I have included before and after pictures below.
Kia is a lovely 3yr old crossbreed.
Unfortunately a week before Christmas, Kia was out running around and cut the inside of her thigh. Her owners took her to VetsNow emergency clinic and was found to have an extensive wound with little skin left to close. The wound was sutured but unfortunately opened up again. Kia was seen back at Glenbrae and we resutured but Kia was left with a large deficit to heal by itself.
Wounds take time to heal and Kia being a lively young dog was very keen to get back to running around and we decided to use our new Laser to speed up the healing. Every 4 days Kia faithfully came back to the clinic for her Laser therapy. It doesn’t hurt at all and Kia enjoys all the attention and tummy rubs she gets from the staff. Every time we see her back we are astonished by her progress.
Now after 6 weeks of treatment Kia is back to her normal walks. Her wound is now a small 5mm scab and is looking fabulous.
Well Done Kia x
