OUR FANTASTIC BOARDING KENNELS ARE NOW OPEN FOR VIEWING AND BOOKINGS.
BOOK NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT
As well as dogs and cats we also offer a safe haven for many other animals. We always have rabbits looking for homes, often guinea pigs and others such as ponies, ferrets, rodents and parakeets. As well as domestic animals we also take in injured and orphaned birds and small wildlife. Wherever possible we care for them until they can be released but if they need more specialised care we pass them on to a wildlife rescue.
This is Lexi a 13 month German Shepherd cross Collie bitch who came into our care after being brought into this country by her owner from Hungary. Sadly her owner was unable to keep Lexi and her companion Ropi. Her owner was devoted to them and we tried to help out by keeping his dogs safely here with us whilst he tried to find a way to keep them. Eventually he had to make the sad choice to part with his dogs and asked us to find them loving forever homes.
Unfortunately last week Lexi suffered complications after a routine spay. Shortly after returning to us from the vets it became obvious that Lexi was not at all well and we swiftly returned her to the vets. Lexi needed another emergency operation but even after this she remained critically ill and had to remain at the vets on a drip.
Whilst Lexi was at the vets her companion Ropi, a cross Jack Russell, was collected by his new owners and taken home to his forever home without being able to say farewell to Lexi.
Meanwhile at the vets poor Lexi was so poorly her internal organs were on the verge of beginning to fail and at one point the vets asked us if we wanted them to continue to treat Lexi or make the decision to have her put to sleep. We asked them to please continue to treat her and we would make a decision depending on how she was the following morning.
Thankfully by the next day Lexi had made a slight improvement which gave us hope that we were right in having faith in her being strong enough to recover.
Since then Lexi has continued to make slow but sure steps in the right direction. We were overjoyed when we heard that she had actually started to eat a little. Our Manager Alison has been visiting Lexi and taking her tasty titbits to stimulate her appetite and the vets are keeping us informed on her condition with regular updates.
We have just been told that tomorrow they are going to try her off the drip and, fingers crossed, if she does well they can start to think about her coming home.
We of course did not want to give up on Lexi, who has already been through so much in her young life, and we are thrilled that she is starting to get better. However her stay in the veterinary hospital along with all of her medication and procedures is going to mean a VERY large vet bill for our charity.
Could you please help? Could you donate some money towards Lexi’s vet bill?
