Out like a lizard in the sun!

Dr Cathy and Dr Vanessa had an interesting visitor in January - a blue tongue lizard that had met the wrong end of a dog. The client found the lizard being used as a toy by their dog and so brought him in for us to examine. The little chap had a nasty wound on his flank that required suturing.

Dr Cathy anaesthetised the lizard and Dr Vanessa sutured the wound. We are pleased to say that he is recovering well now, taking his antibiotics diligently and will soon be released back into the wild. Let's hope next time he has a much pleasant sunbaking session.
