As veterinary professionals, your pet’s good health is our number one priority. Here are three of the most heartwarming stories we have witnessed at our small animal and exotics clinic in Dubai.
1. Mizu, the Singing Love Bird
Poor little Mizu arrived at 2F4P Dubailand, collapsed, weak with neurological issues.The first thing the 2F4P Team concentrated on was stabilising him – he was so weak, everyone was very worried.Luckily Mizu responded quite quickly and even sang us a little song as he started to feel better 💖Once stable, we felt happier to start investigating what might be the cause of the issues – which is looking highly likely to be heavy metal poisoning.We are SO happy to confirm that Mizu is doing SO well that he goes home today 👏🏻We all fell a bit in ❤ with him but especially Nurse Sara & Dr Jose 🦜💛#2Feet4Paws #FamilyisFamily

Little Mizu arrived at 2Feet4Paws Veterinary Clinic in Dubailand, collapsed, weak with neurological issues. The first thing the 2F4P Team concentrated on was stabilising him – he was so weak, everyone was very worried.
Luckily Mizu responded quite quickly and even sang us a little song as he started to feel better. Once stable, we felt happier to start investigating what might be the cause of the issues – which ultimately looked likely to be heavy metal poisoning.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Mizu and his owner. We all fell a bit in love with his sunny disposition but Nurse Sara and Dr Jose the most of all.
2. Arthur, the Playful Dog
Arthur’s medical journey involved a condition called Cryptorchidism. This is when one or both testicles are retained with the body. It can affect 1-3% of dogs and there are a number of VERY significant medical reasons as to why this condition must be addressed.
With the help of our Endoscopic Equipment, we were able to locate the retained testicle with a camera and then, remove it laparoscopically – all through the smallest of incisions! As this was a much less invasive method, Arthur’s recovery time improved vastly.
Before we knew it, Arthur was happily back to his bouncy self!
3. The Brave and Bold Tortoise
Tortoises getting involved in RTAs are not that uncommon and the huge crushing damage when a 4×4 meets an 8kg tortoise is very clear in this video. Sadly, he had some of the most extensive damage we have seen.This 35-year-old, much-loved tortoise was given to the Owner when he was 11. Tortoise continues to be very much a part of his family, and now his own children have learnt to love him just as much.Dr. Chris and the rest of the 2F4P Vet Team worked together to repair Tortoise's shell, relieve any crushing pressure on his internal organs & assess any internal injuries.Since the operation, Tortoise has gone home to recover and will need to be tube-fed for a while.Time will tell as to how fully he recovers from any spinal damage but early reports are looking very positive indeed.‘Speedy’ recovery, Tortoise!UPDATE:2 weeks post-accident, Tortoise’s Owner tells us he is eating by himself now and doing very well. 👏#familyisfamily #morethanjustajob

Tortoises getting involved in RTAs are not that uncommon and the huge crushing damage when a 4×4 meets an 8kg tortoise is very clear in the video above. Shell injuries are something we see often but his were some of the most extensive damage we have seen.
34 years ago, Tortoise was given to his 11-year-old owner, who remains totally devoted to him & was devastated at what had happened. Now a father himself, his children have grown up with, and love, Tortoise just as much.
Dr. Chris and the rest of the 2F4P Vet Team spent many hours working to repair Tortoise’s shell, to relieve any crushing pressure on his internal organs & assess any internal injuries.
His recovery was quite astonishing to see and, 2 weeks post-accident, Tortoise was eating by himself and doing very well.
