4110. Women like you....

Mar 26, 2020


Women like you
May be doves
Running with the howling wolves

Do not let the doubts of fools and bootlickers
Stop you from lifting the universe
With one hand

Dear Dr Daniel Sing

Yesterday, we brought KAME for consultation and injection to induce her to lay eggs.




Please help to review the X Ray again for KAME if she had 8 or 9 eggs?  So far she laid 8 (laid first egg about 5 o clock [about 1 hr 15 mins after injection] and continuously next 45 minutes) in the car at Lorong 5 car park. It was raining heavily.

We brought her home and she fell asleep without food.

This morning Rita found her in the bathtub but the water drained.  After filling up the bathtub with water, she was restless and not eating yet.

Thank you.

Best regards
Kho / Rita

Dear Doctor Daniel Sing

Finally the biggest egg, KAME laid around 4pm this afternoon. She dug a hole at the garden and laid and covered it.  Rita took it out from the mud and took a photo of it for your record.

Thank you.

Best regards
Jimmy / Rita

PREVIOUS OXYTOCIN INJECTION IN DEC 2019

APRIL 20, 2019

Dear Dr Sing
We went back about 5pm and since you administered the injection she had laid 5 eggs. As we were travelling home she laid one egg in the car.
When my wife reached home about 5.45pm she laid another 2 eggs. We went out and when my son reached home, he found 4 eggs in the plastic box (filled with water) around 6.45pm.
In total she laid 12 eggs. Is it possible for her to form another 7 eggs in 11 days?
She is very tired and now sleeping.   We are monitoring her closely if more eggs 🥚 to come.

4106. HABITAT LOSS. The Oriental Garden Lizard loses his home in Yio Chu Kang Crescent

Mar 6, 2020





The regular and once-monthly clearing of the vines, creepers, grass and leaves from the railing and the nearby areas of Lentor Avenue/Yio Chu Kang Crescent result in the loss of habitat for this young Oriental Garden Lizard. He has no insects to hunt and survive. There are very few of such creatures nowadays, less than 5 in this area which is being developed into a major road. The lizard will become extinct as Singapore develops more land and build more. 










Mar 20, 2020. Rare sighting of the oldest Oriental Garden Lizard seen by luck, being at the right place at the right time. How do I know? Its length is longer and its head is broader compared to the younger ones. (show photo side by side).







-------------------------------------------


On the same day, at the Countryside Park Garden, there was a younger adult. Hunting.



----------------------------------------------------------

As the habitat is lost owing to construction of the highway, these lizards are getting extinct.

4102. REYNA. Burring of the overgrown front teeth in a Guinea Pig


1.  Edit the video - show the use of the burring tool to trim the excess length. Burring is said to reduce the likelihood of tooth fracture if one uses just a cutter. 

Overgrown front teeth

 A guinea pig grows continuously unlike human teeth. They are worn down by the guinea pig eating hard food like hay. However, this guinea pig was not given sufficient hay and the teeth grew and grew. They overlap and the guinea pig cannot eat properly. He loses weight. This vet educational video shows the burring or cutting of the overgrown teeth to enable the guinea pig to eat normally again. After the procedure of burring using the Dremel 300 cutting wheel as shown in this video, the guinea pig now can chew hay normally and has gained weight. Early signs like loss of appetite warn the owner that the teeth are overgrown. She sought Toa Payoh Vets for early treatment and now the guinea pig is thriving.
