Cases

  • Kira - broken leg

    Kira came to our clinic with a lot of pain and she couldn't stand on her own leg.

    Dr. Marvan immediately took some x-ray photos, which clearly showed that Kira's leg was broken. It was decided to perform surgery on Kira and to stabilize with orthopaedic pins.

    Also, Kira received antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs and painkillers to take home.

    The next day, we got a call that Kira was feeling much better and that she even had started jumping again. After four weeks, the pins were removed. Kira is now walking on both legs and is able to play with her owner without pain again.

    You can see at the x-ray taken after surgery, that the orthopaedic pin has been placed in the bone. This pin has been secured by external fixation. This way, the bone has a chance to heal.

  • Mick - bursitis and muscle trauma

    A harris hawk from Rotterdam Airport works together with his falconers to keep passengers inside aircraft safe. They do this by keeping the airspace bird free. Mick (This is the name of the bird) along with other birds are dotting the area around the airport. This way other birds stay at bay.

    Because Mick always works hard and uses his claws a lot he got a painful bulge. After examination by Dr O. Marvan they discovered Mick had Bursitis.

    After an injection and medication Mick's health got better very rapidly. After some rest Mick is now working again at the airport. Here he performs his job as if he never quit.

  • Peanut - Rechter achterpoot gebroken

    Peanut was met zijn eigenaar op vakantie in Duitsland. Van het een op het andere moment verdween Peanut. Een tijdje later vond de eigenaar hem terug met een gedraaide poot. Waarschijnlijk is Peanut aangereden door een auto. In Duitsland gaf een dierenarts eerste hulp. De dierenarts had peanut gips gegeven. Dit ging echter niet goed.

    Eenmaal thuis in Nederland is de eigenaar naar de dierenarts vlak bij zijn huis gegaan. Deze dierenarts stuurde Peanut naar Dierenkliniek Het Zicht voor een tweede opinie voor orthopedische problemen. Na rontgen en controle bleek dat de knie van de kat was gebroken.

    Na een lange operatie met orthopedische schroeven hebben we de ligamenten, het kniekapsel en de beenderen gereconstrueerd.

    Peanut is nu helemaal in orde en kan weer lopen als vanouds.

  • Xam - Skin problems

    Xam is a dog that has been treated against skin problems for four years at another clinic. Xam was suffering of severe itching, pain and pus over his whole body. He was physically exhausted and his skin was smelly. Nobody in the neighbourhood wanted their dog to play with Xam. The owners had become desperate from all this and were afraid that Xam had to be euthanatized eventually.

    Their last hope was a second opinion by Dr. O. Marvan.

    After the dog had been examined, Dr. Marvan started a treatment with medicines and a special diet. This resulted in a correction of the immune system and improvement of the metabolism. Nowadays, Xam is a very happy and healthy dog. He plays with other dogs as before, doesn't smell anymore and his skin and fur have been fully cured. His owners are glad that they have given this treatment a chance and still enjoy Xam each day.

  • PC - Elbow luxation

    PC fell down from the second floor and was send by another veterinarian for an orthopaedic second opinion. He couldn't walk or even use his leg. Also, there was some uncertainty whether the organs had been damaged due to the fall. After a check-up and a series of x-ray photos, the diagnosis was that the elbow was luxated and that the capsule was broken. Dr. Marvan and the para-veterinarians decided to reconstruct the elbow so PC could keep using his leg.

    Nowadays, he runs and plays with pleasure and jumps in the boat of his owner 

    This photograph has been taken before surgery. You can clearly see that the elbow is dislocated.

  • Dunya - Dorsal hernia

    Dunya was brought in to Veterinary Clinic "Het Zicht" as an emergency by Animal Rescue The Hague. He wasn't able to walk by himself and was brought in on a stretcher. Dunya turned his leg badly, which caused a dorsal hernia. This was diagnosed after taking x-ray photographs. His hind legs were fully paralysed.

    After putting the vertebras back where they belonged, a treatment with medicines was started. During this period, Dunya's body had to be supported while Dunya was walking. After a year, Dunya had fully recovered and now walks like nothing has happened.

  • Moppie - weggelopen

    De kat werd even verder door een mevrouw gevonden op straat toen het sneeuwde.

    De mevrouw heeft de kat in huis genomen en was erg aan het diertje gehecht.

    Omdat mevrouw toch graag de kat terug wilde brengen naar zijn eigen baasjes is mevrouw met de kat naar ons gekomen om te kijken of het diertje een chip had.

    Gelukkig was de kat gechipt en kon het baasje snel gevonden worden.

    Dezelfde middag kwam het bazinnetje en haar zoon de kat Moppie al weer ophalen.

  • Henkie - Clipping and nails cutting, beak correction

    It is recommended to have your bird's nails and wings treated thoroughly once in three months.

    We often notice at our clinic that people tried to clip their bird themselves, but that they do it wrong. At our clinic, we clip the birds so that when the bird jumps, it can still land and therefore doesn't just drop down.

    When you cut the nails to short, they might start bleeding. It is important in such a case, that the bleeding is stopped in a proper and safe way. However, when the nails are too long, the blood vessel inside the nail continues to grow and you will not be able to cut the nail as short anymore.

    Therefore, it is important not to wait for a long time to have the nails cut.

    Some birds have a wrong position of the beak which causes one half of the beak to grow faster than the other half. This eventually results that your bird won't be able to eat. Especially with these birds, it is very important to come to our clinic on time to have the beak of your bird corrected in the right shape. 

    We can treat birds that get stressed a lot under sedation if necessary.

  • Rambo - Several complaints

    Rambo is a bearded dragon which was brought to our clinic with several complaints.

    The main problem was that Rambo didn't want to eat.

    Furthermore, he had some strange discolorations over his body. He received some antibiotics from Dr. O. Marvan to exclude a bacterial infection and furthermore he was put on a special diet to regain strength.

    About a week later, Rambo had returned to our clinic. This time, he had a thick leg and he still didn't have a good appetite. It was decided that Rambo would get stronger antibiotics and that the owner had to continue with feeding Rambo.

    Luckily for Rambo, the antibiotics worked this time and he felt much better again. His leg returned to its normal thickness, to colour of his skin turned normal and he started to eat on his own. Nowadays, Rambo is doing very well and he enjoys his meal of crickets and worms again.

  • Dana - Gescheurde kruisband en meniscus

    Dana is als pup bij ons gekomen in de kliniek. Op een leeftijd van ongeveer vier jaar kreeg Dana last van haar knie. Na onderzoek bleek dat de meniscus in de knie van Dana kapot was. Er is besloten om de knie te opereren en de gescheurde meniscus weg te halen, zodat Dana er geen pijn meer aan zou ondervinden en het gewricht weer goed kan functioneren. De kruisband bleek ook gescheurd te zijn, daarom werd er een kunstkruisband in de knie geplaatst bij Dana.

    Vanwege arthrose in haar heupgewricht heeft Dana een onderhoudsdosering van pijnstilling meegekregen na deze operatie. Dit gebruikt Dana momenteel nog steeds.

    Ongeveer 30% van de honden met knieproblemen, krijgen uiteindelijk ook klachten aan de andere knie. Dit is bij Dana uiteindelijk ook gebeurd.

    Op 6,5 jarige leeftijd is Dana teruggekomen met pijnklachten bij ons in de praktijk. Na grondig lichamelijk onderzoek en het maken van rontgenfoto's was te zien dat er een kraakbeensplintertje van de knieschijf af was gegaan. Ook was er erge arthrose in de heup en aan de poot (bij de knie) te zien. Er is besloten in overleg met de eigenaar om ook deze knie te opereren. Tijdens deze operatie is er ook een kunstkruisband geplaatst voor extra stevigheid aangezien deze kruisband ook gescheurd was.

    Dana kan weer rennen en met de bal spelen zoals ze altijd gedaan heeft.

    Hieronder kunt u aan de hand van foto's zien hoe het Dana vergaan is na de operatie:

     

     

    Dag 3; eerste dag zonder verband

     

     

     

     

    Dag 5; Eerste keer voorzichtig op staan

     

     

     

     

    Dag 6; Voorzichtig de eerste stapjes

     

     

     

     

    Dag 12; Er steviger op staan en lopen

     

     

     

     

    Dag 14; Hechtingen verwijderd en het haar begint terug te groeien

     

     

     

     

    Dana kan weer goed lopen en heeft geen pijn meer aan haar knie!

     

     

  • Luna - Kruisband ruptuur

    Luna is een Spinone Italiona van bijna 7 jaar. Begin 2011 kwam Luna de praktijk mank binnen gelopen.

    Er werden rontgenfoto's gemaakt. Hierop was veel arthose te zien en er zat teveel vocht in het gewricht. Ook zag dierenarts O. Marvan dat de kruisband en meniscus gescheurd waren. Er werd in overleg met haar baasjes besloten om een operatie te doen. Hier werd een nieuwe kunststof kruisband geplaatst om de oude te vervangen. Meer informatie over de kruisband operatie bij honden.

    Na de operatie is Luna snel terug hersteld en ze rent weer als nooit tevoren over het strand.
