Smash 9 years
Gunnedah Veterinary Hospital, NSW
What a 'Smashing' idea!
Job titleSmash the sleuth
My clinic dutiesMy clinic duties include snooping around keeping my one watchful eye on any naughty kitties and puppies, the Veterinarian's personal seat warmer and the clinic's 'cleaner of the month'... Food cleaner that is.
My favourite thingsSome of my favourite things are cuddles, scratches behind the ears and Woolworths BBQ chicken.
My naughtiest habitMy naughtiest habit is sneaking into consult rooms whenever I see fit.. I also like to scare the staff by popping up under their feet!
What makes me an important part of the team?Smash is very well known throughout our town after a 'lost cat hit by car' Facebook post circled through our community. He has regular visitors to check up on how he is doing. He is now a part of our team and we love having him around! Even if he does try and steal our lunch.
Other things you should know about me
Smash was brought to us by a local after being found with extensive injuries after being hit by a car.
He underwent extensive fluid therapy, placement of a feeding tube, an eye ablation, removal of several teeth, two jaw reconstruction procedures with placement of wires and a pin to fix his multiple jaw fractures and an entropian surgery on his right eye.
On arrival at the clinic he weighed a mere 3kg.. he now weighs 6.5kgs and is a very happy and affectionate boy.
