Happy Anniversary and Birthday to Dr. Wood!

Dr. W had a birthday yesterday, but just as importantly, it is her one year anniversary of starting work at the Long Beach Animal Hospital.

Dr. Wood has done an outstanding job in every aspect!

She has taken over the Wildlife Program, and with her efforts, we have released even more injured wild animals successfully.

Dr. Wood is a good diagnostician and surgeon, and always has a positive attitude. Her enthusiasm is contagious.

It's been a great year working with you Dr. Wood, and we hope to have many, many more in the future!

Answer to the mystery X-ray

There is hip dysplasia on the right hip (see circle). The left leg has a decrease bone density in the proximal femur (see circle) with a proliferation of bone in the mid shaft of the left femur (see arrow) . These changes are probably osteosarcoma (cancer), although they might be an osteomyelitis or even a fungal infection

Meredith KennedyIt appears to be a palm oil kernel, with the outer fruit digested away, leaving a 'hairy' looking kernel. It's not toxic, but the size can be a problem if it creates an obstruction. In Tater's case she was lucky we got it out before it tried going into the small intestine, where it would very likely have gotten stuck.

Junior Extern Final Diary

I can't believe this was my last day at the Long Beach Animal Hospital. Today I saw two treatments that only a select few veterinarians do- acupuncture and VNA (Veterinary Neuronal Adjustment. Here are links to learn more:

VNA- www.lbah.com/word/services/vna-veterinary-neuronal-adjustment/

Acupuncture- www.lbah.com/word/services/acupuncture/

I met a client with two beautiful golden retrievers, and spent lots of time observing the technicians do their magic and Dr. Reed doing more ultrasounds.

I also learned how to diagnose a bone tumor called osteosarcoma, and then learned about a surgery called FHO (Femoral Head Osteotomy) to repair a dislocated hip that will not go back into the socket. Here is more info from our web site:

www.lbah.com/word/canine/femoral-head-ostectomy-fho/

The day ended with this raccoon brought into the Wildlife Program. In my 4 days at Long Beach Animal Hospital I saw much more than I could have ever imagined.

A big thanks to my parents from providing this opportunity, and to Dr. P and all of his staff for making me feel at home and patiently answering all of my questions. I love California!

Junior Extern Daily Diary

At the end of yesterday it was whirlwind of activity, with surgeries, 6 abdominal ultrasounds, 2 echocardiograms, and lots of exams. I slept well!

Today for the first time I examined wildlife! I learned how to hold and perform an exam on a dove. I found the heartbeat and checked for any abnormalities, especially for wing fractures.

We took a radiograph and did not find any abnormalities. We will provide nourishment and rest and send this dove to one of our rehabilitators.

Tomorrow is my last day at the hospital, time is going way too fast!

Cooper's Hawk Re-Nesting

A young Cooper's Hawk was brought into our wildlife program. It had no injuries, so our dedicated team consisting of Dr. Kennedy (our photographer), Dr. Wood (our hawk doctor), and Alex (our tree climber), put it back in the area it came from.

Our team had to drive to this spot, scout for an appropriate area, climb a ladder (yea Alex), and put the hawk into a tree. Quite the job ladies and gentleman!

Back to Africa

Dr. P's Sep 2017 Botswana and Namibia trips are full, so he is planning his next Africa trips, sometime in 2018 and 2019. If you have any interest in going, maybe you can convince him to take you to see the mountain gorillas (zoos only have lowland gorillas).

He went there in 2011. It's an adventure not to be missed, especially since they are in such low numbers and their future is tenuous at best.

Here is the link to the full page and explanations of what it is like to go on a unique trip like this-

Dr. P has a friend named Marty with lots of wildlife that he has adopted, rescued, or is taking care of for the Department of Natural Resources in Michigan.

What a blast! The most fun was the fawns, the male deer, and the elk. Video of feeding the fawn will be posted later.

Breakfast time for eagle chicks

Dr. P spend significant time in a kayak at 6 AM, waiting for just the right time and light, for this opportunity to photograph the male eagle returning with breakfast for his chicks. It took one week for the weather to be just right and the eagle to show. When he saw the eagle coming in the distance he started shaking, realizing he finally had his opportunity, and he better not miss the shot!

For you technical types, the photo was taken with a Canon 1Dx Mark II at 50 yards, using a 400mm D. O. II lens and 1.4X teleconverter. The photo was shot at 1/3000th of a second with an ISO of 1250 and an aperture of f/5.6.

Baby Snapping Turtle

Dr. P is in Michigan teaching photography in Seney National Wildlife Refuge. It's the time of year for the snapping turtles to lay eggs.

He came across this little guy thinking it was a recent hatch. It turns out the females turtles are just starting to dig their nests and lay their eggs.This means this guy was from last year's hatch! How he survived the brutally cold and long winter is anyone's guess.

Above and Beyond!

Christina from South Bay Wildlife Rescue, and our very own Dr. Wood, went above and beyond today.

A juvenile Cooper's hawk was brought into our Wildlife Program. It was determined to have no injuries, so Dr. Wood and Christina returned it where it was found.

Eagle-eyed Christina found the nest somehow, and Dr. Wood got on a ladder and climbed (that's the "above" part in the title of this post) up to the nest to replace the bird. Christina is our photographer in these photos.

This was a great job by some dedicated individuals to help the wildlife in our area. Great job ladies!

Dinner Time for Our Eagle Chicks

Dr. P went out in a kayak to get a better vantage point on the eagles. He watched the nest for a while as the female awaited a dinner of steelhead trout from the male. After the male eagle dropped off dinner two fuzzy chicks appeared.

The male went to a tree after he dropped off the trout. He decided Dr. P was a little to close so he strafed him. Guess it was time to go!

Vicki Baker RileyFabulous! We're on Orcas Island, WA and just observed 2 bald eagles feeding their adolescent chick on a rock. Once I looked at the pictures I realized the chick the one was feeding had a red head. It was a vulture! My husband insists it was a chick that flew in. Once I get home I'll post a picture. It's not great because I have a 50x lens, but you can still see the 2 birds clearly. Oh, and speaking of strafed, my husband had the experience of having a falcon dig his claws into his head when he was waiting for his carpool van. Apparently he was too close to a nest. The impact knocked my hubby to the ground and he was bleeding from the talons.

Wildlife Photography Tips- Finding Wildlife

Wildlife are difficult to find, let alone photograph. I am going to show you the preparation needed to photograph a bald eagle at a lake called Wycamp in northern Michigan.

You need to scout ahead of time to find the likely places they might be. In the spring, when the foliage is sparse, you can see through the forest and observe evidence of wildlife you cannot see a few weeks later when the foliage is thicker.

In this post you will see a sequence of 10 photos for this lesson. If you make it to the last one you will see the eagle returning from a fishing trip with a steelhead trout in its talons taken from Lake Michigan to its mate on the nest.

In each picture I will give more info as to what is going on. My assistant photographer Dana (Danacama.com) was with me learning how to do all of this.

From the Field

Dr. P is in Mich teaching his assistant wildlife photography for the upcoming Botswana trip .

Its springtime, so the wildlife are active, thawing out from a cold winter. They are migrating back, courting, building nests, building dams, raising young, and getting ready to enjoy the time of plenty.

Weather has ranged from 25 degrees F at 5 AM (yes, you need to get up early for wildlife photography) to the mid 70's, with every day a new surprise. The mosquitoes have ranged from zero to "its time to get the mosquito netting out".

Dr. P's assistant saw this bird during a hike in the forest Can you guess what this colorful bird is?

For birds in flight that is slow, most of the time I try to shoot birds flying this fast at a shutter speed of at least 1/3200th of a second. Cindy, your guess was right on, and I got lucky to freeze the bird in flight with the fish in its mouth at 1/1250th of a second.

We had a Pacman frog come into our Wildife Program with a thread around his leg. He was a cooperative patient, and after a little bit of unwrapping with a thumb forceps, Dr. Wood made him good as new.

Dog Flu Vaccine

The recent outbreak of the dog flu in Los Angeles (the same one as Chicago a few years ago) is under control. This link from the Los Angeles County has more details-

publichealth.lacounty.gov/vet/InfluenzaCanineH3N2.htm

As a precaution, we have the vaccine for those dogs that are exposed to other dogs at dog parks, boarding facilities or other locations where there is a potential exposure.

The vaccine is given in a series of two injections, two weeks apart, and prevents the newest strain of the virus, the H3N2 strain.

A Little Reminder......

It's baby bird season, and if you find a little guy like this on the ground, but still in his nest, it is best to put him up high in a tree nearby, and let the parents take care of him.

A bird like this should only be brought in to our Wildlife Program if it is obviously injured. This means it is weak, has a wound, a wing is hanging, or it is limping, or some other obvious sign of illness.

Extern Final Diary

Today is the last day of my three week externship at Long Beach Animal Hospital (and yes, I brought donuts).

I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff here for all of their help and how fantastic they were at welcoming me and letting me feel like part of the team. Thank you to Dr. P and all of the incredible doctors who work here for this fantastic experience. From your expertise on exotics and small animals, I have gained so much knowledge as well as a new comfort level when working with exotics.

Special thank you my vet school, St. George's University, and to Virginia Maryland, where I did my clinical year.

For my last post, let's focus on a less common pet, a pot-bellied pig. This guy came in because his family was concerned since he had been foaming at the mouth. It was possible he had been exposed to a toxin, had a foreign body, or if he was over-heated and stressed.

We have a page on Pot-bellied pigs:

Duck Bath after Wing Surgery
Extern Daily Diary

Our "duck with personality" from yesterday is doing well, eating good and maintaining her weight.

We started passive range of motion exercises for her lame leg. We also let her get some sunshine and do her duck thing in a tub of water. This helps her leg in healing.

You can learn much more about her surgery, and also see how I do her passive range-of-motion exercises at this link- www.lbah.com/word/wildlife-photography/

Tomorrow is the last day of my 3 week externship at LBAH. It has flown by, and I have learned a lot!

Rumor has it that I am supposed to bring donuts or bagels to the staff on my last day.

Extern Daily Diary- The Duck with Personality

My first laser surgery!

I had the privilege to help with a wing amputation on a duck this week. This duck was brought in with a broken right wing, injuried left leg/foot, and traumatized from the male ducks in her group.

This girl was a real trooper with a great personality. Her radiographs showed that her left wing had a complete fracture that was old, had not healed, painful, and was unlikely to ever fuse.

We decided to amputate the wing and get her into a home where someone could take care of her since she will never fly again. We let her rest for several days and regain her strength before surgery.

You can see the photos of the surgery (and me helping Dr. P) at this link:

Today was heart day. Cardiac disease is an important topic, not only because different breeds are predisposed to different conditions, but more importantly, your pet can hide its illness until it becomes severe.

Dr. P and I discussed the physiology behind heart disease, along with diagnosis and treatment. We went over the case of a Labrador Retriever with cardiomyopathy.

There is an awful lot to heart anatomy, physiology, diagnosis and treatment, so if you are up to the challenge, I double dare you to read the following LBAH link on heart disease. Give yourself a pat on the back if you make it through this page!

Many tests are needed to diagnosis a dog or a cat with heart disease. One of the most important ones is the echocardiogram.

This is my last week, and I will be learning about exotics and wildlife. There is lots to learn in this aspect of veterinary medicine.

Long Beach Animal Hospital takes in injured wildlife, and tries to treat and either release or rehome when possible. Wildlife is everywhere, so it is important to know the correct ways to interact as well as handle wildlife.

We use towels as part of our restraint technique over the use of gloves. This allows for better ability to handle the animals, as well as being less stressful on the patients. Safety is important for both the patient as well as those who are handling them.

Shore birds and predator birds can have sharp beaks and strong talons which can be used as weapons when they are trying to protect themselves. Proper restraint is crucial to avoid injury.

One of the important parts of wildlife care is reducing stress on the patient. Captured wild animals are usually brought to us with injuries that are serious. They are highly stressed, so slow handling and treatment is necessary.

Below is a picture of a pigeon being examined. The towel is part of the restraint to help keep the bird calm as well as provide some protection to the holder as well. We use towels even on large birds, so that we do not need to use gloves.

On her way to work Dr. Seto spotted this pheasant walking right in front of her. She got this great shot with her phone! It is amazing how much wildlife thrives in our urban environment.

When Dr. P takes people around the world and teaches them wildlife photography, one of the most important skills is not with the camera, it is being observant, just like Dr. Seto was this morning. Maybe she missed her calling, and should be a wildlife photographer!

Great shot Dr. Seto!

Extern Daily Diary

One of the reasons I did my externship at LBAH is to get exposed to exotic animals in addition to dogs and cats. LBAH sees lots of them, including ferrets. They are cute and friendly pets, and quite entertaining to watch.

Today I had the opportunity to see surgery performed on a ferret. In today's surgery, an insulinoma was found. This is a tumor on the pancreas which causes an excess of insulin leading to low glucose (sugar) in the body. Insulinomas can result in decreased appetite and weight loss as well as collapse or seizures.

Ferrets are prone to other medical problems, so when an insulinoma surgery is performed it is important to perform a thorough exploratory surgery. Special attention will be placed on assessing the adrenal glands, another common problem organ in ferrets.

Some interesting facts that I learned today are that ferrets are not fasted as long as dogs and cats prior to surgery due to their propensity to become hypoglycemic (low blood sugar), and that it is important to monitor temperature because they become hypothermic (low body temperature) really easily.

For more information about insulinomas, check out this link:

www.lbah.com/word/ferret/ferret-insulinoma/

For more information about adrenal disease, check out this link:

Today Inflammatory Bowel Disease, or IBD, was the morning rounds topic. This is a common disease as pets get older, especially cats.

IBD is a chronic gastrointestinal disease, which can be caused by dietary allergies, infections or environmental stress. In some cases, the liver and pancreas can be involved, and this disease is called Triaditis.

Clinical signs of IBD incluce poor appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, and weight loss. These clinical signs are not specific to IBD, which is why it is so important to bring your pet in for examination and diagnostics.

Diagnostics used for IBD include a minimum database (bloodwork, urinalysis, and a fecal), abdominal radiograph and abdominal ultrasound. Biopsies of the intestines are sometimes needed to confirm the diagnosis.

For much more information about IBD, follow this link:

www.lbah.com/word/canine/inflammatory-bowel-disease-ibd/

Below is a radiograph of a patient with IBD. The arrow points to the thickened small intestines typical of IBD.

Today I was able to watch different surgeries (a neuter and a mass removal) that utilized a carbon dioxide laser. There are several benefits from using a laser including decreased pain, swelling, risk of infection and bleeding. A laser can be used in a variety of surgeries ranging from neuters to oral tumor removal to bladder surgery.

After watching the laser being used in surgery, I was able to practice using the laser. It requires practice and experience, but it is a great tool to have access to.

Today I helped with a 4 month old puppy that had diarrhea. On a new puppy exam we look for any signs of congenital diseases that may be present, and also check for any signs of internal parasites (worms).

Worms are a common disease in puppies and kittens. They are diagnosed by looking for the egg of the parasite in a fecal exam. Puppies have worms so commonly that we routinely worm them even if we do not have a fecal sample.

Some common symptoms of worms are diarrhea, vomiting, and lethargy, which can also be signs of other more serious diseases. It is important to run fecal examinations to look to see if the problems are worms.

Worms can also be a cause of illness in people, especially children, which is why it is important to deworm pets. Worms can be spread in the environment that is contaminated with your pets feces that has worms present. It is important to quickly remove feces present.

For more information on worms follow this link:

I had a great time at the Aquarium of the Pacific. In the morning I was able to watch a veterinary dental specialist perform a dental with extractions on a sea otter. I learned about dentition in a sea otter and medications that can be used.

In the afternoon, I was able to see radiographs and ultrasound of a fish, medications given to eels, baby sharks and fish. This was a great way to learn about marine veterinary care and some of the work the great veterinary staff performs at the aquarium.

I am very lucky to have had this opportunity and appreciate Long Beach Animal Hospital setting this up.

Dr. Wood's first spleen surgery

Dr. Yamamoto did a splenectomy with Dr. Wood's assistance this week. They did a great job!

We have a detailed page on spleen diseases that should be read by all pet owners, especially those with larger breed dogs. Many dogs do not show any symptoms until the spleen is so large it is rupturing and emergency surgery is needed.

You can learn a whole lot more from our web site:
www.lbah.com/word/canine/spleen-disease/

There are many blood vessels to the spleen, and all of them need to be ligated to remove a diseased or rupturing spleen. This takes a significant amount of time. We utilize the skills of two surgeons to minimize the time required, which means less anesthetic time.

I learned how difficult it is, and also how much experience and equipment are needed. It looks so easy to fix when you look at the radiograph, but it is a whole different world when you do the surgery, due to bleeding, blood vessels, nerves, and muscles, not to mention the bones that are in several pieces.

It's blood glucose was low so we treated it for that and started looking for underlying problems that can cause this in a puppy.

They include:
Worms (especially Coccidia)
Viruses
Liver disease
Toxins

Today we discussed the diagnosis and treatment of feline hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism occurs in older cats and has symptoms similar to other diseases common in older cats. This is why it is important to follow the diagnostic process. You can learn more at this link:

www.lbah.com/word/the-diagnostic-process/

Once you make a diagnosis, it is important to check blood pressure. Cats with hyperthyroidism can have high blood pressure which can cause blindness.

To learn more about feline hyperthyroidism, please follow this link:

www.lbah.com/word/feline/hyperthyroid/

A normal blood pressure in a cat is up to 160 mmHg, which is higher than a person. Sometimes, we need to take more than one reading to get an accurate number.
