Whiskey & Spikey


I’m:
Lakshmi Nair
My pets’ name: Whiskey & Spikey
My vet’s name: Dr Ramani Jairam
Veterinary clinic/hospital: Pluto Pet Clinic, Mumbai
How I came across my vet: I met him when I had my first baby Takila, a Doberman, that was about 15 years back.
Do I visit the vet for regular check-up or only in case of medical condition: Mostly in case of medical conditions.
How long have I been visiting my vet: About 15 years.
Toughest medical challenge faced by me and my pets: With Whiskey and Spikey nothing serious, but Takila towards the end of his life had gotten seriously ill. He wasn’t eating for more than a week and he was passing blood in his urine.
Role played by my vet: Dr Jairam and the other doctors at his clinic helped Takila live another 6-8 months, so that when he finally breathed his last it was from old age and not suffering from any illness. Dr Jairam had also conducted surgeries on Takila for bladder stones & hernia and treated him multiple times for maggots, which Takila was extremely prone to contracting despite the best care.
A special quality about my vet: In my experience there is no doctor who has the kind of compassion and connection to animals like Dr Jairam has. One visit to him and my babies get healthy again. My respect and gratitude to Dr Jairam cannot merely be conveyed in words.
A ‘Thank You’ note for my vet: Thank you doctor for always being available, for patient even when I called at 7 am out of worry and for taking such good care of Takila every time he was ill. Thank you for being such a great friend to my babies.
