Animals undergoing veterinary treatment (longer term)
Here we have Maggie
Maggie is an 8 week old french bulldog female
She was recently surrendered to a local veterinary practice after being given away for free from a local breeder, the owners saw a free dog and didn't think for a moment that she would require such extensive veterinary treatment
Maggie arrived with
Demodex (skin mites)
Multiple skin conditions
The vets also suspect hip dysplasia
The standard flead and worms
She will also need BOAS surgery
Maggie has spent the last couple of weeks with soaring temperatures, multiple vet visits, smelly ears and pustules all over her skin which have been agonising for her
She is still undergoing treatment to try and clear her mites and relieve her skin and requires 3 antibiotics a day, piriton, no grain, wheat, rice, or dairy in her diet, daily medicated baths and much more.
She is however proving an extremely resilient little girl and we are all thrilled with her progress so far.
Louis was dropped at our door at the start of December after being left for over a week with a broken leg and no pain relief
The owners refused to give any explanation as to how Louis ended up with a broken leg
Louis went in for surgery immediately and had his leg pinned in 6 places
He has struggled with infections since having the pins placed and it was thought the operation wasn't being successful so we got a specialist orthopaedic vet referral at a different practice and they gave us some good news- he is healing! We are hoping he will be able to have his pins removed at the end of the month and he can begin his final stretch in his recovery.
Penny is an 11 year old JRT who was handed over for free in a car park after having spent years of her life barely even existing
She is missing all of her front teeth, our vet suspect as a result of trauma
She has pressure sores all over her body
She has one of the highest worm counts we have ever seen
She also was totally covered in oil and petrified
Of course, not spayed either
we are working hard to get Penny back on track and feeling fantastic again the first step was a strong worm and flea treatment.
