Caring for our Long Term Patients

Some diseases can be prevented with vaccinations, while others are treated with a single round of antibiotics. Chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, kidney disease and heart disease however, are not so easily handled. These diseases are not uncommon and usually required lifelong treatment and monitoring.

Abby is one of the highly skilled veterinarians in our Oamaru clinic who “has a particular passion for providing the best care and quality of life for these patients”. She has recently taken on the key role of managing all of our long term patients. Abby has an advanced knowledge in chronic medical diseases and has impressively completed master’s papers in cardiorespiratory medicine, endocrinology, neurology and gastroenterology.
