723. House-call for Golden Retriever with ear area snipped

Nov 2, 2011.

"It sounds like a surgical case," I said to the lady who googled "house-call vets singapore" and phoned me as to whether I would do a house-call in East Singapore. She volunteered to bathe this dog. Her maid and the neighbour's were cleaning the neighbour's Golden Retriever. There was a big clump of matted hair behind the ear. So, the scissors cut off the matted lump. 50% of the skin depth was cut off too. Size of 4 cm x 5 cm. So, the kind lady phoned for a house call.

I got the transport man to bring the dog down to the Surgery at 12 noon.
A bit overweight.

28 kg. Unknown health status.
Domitor 0.4 + Ketamine 0.5 ml IV (1/3 calculated dose for 30kg, young healthy dog).
GR sedated within 1 minute but woke up
