ONE OF OUR 3 GERIATRIC HERDS

This is our granny herd, on the left is Red aged 33 yo, owned by our Rehabilitation Manager, Tamzin, in the centre is our oldest resident Mrs Mac aged 37 yo and to the right is Claudia aged 31 yo, both Red and Mac have lost their long term companions this year and as you will remember, Claudia started the year emaciated and with a serious case of lymphangitis.

I am sure you will all agree that they are looking amazing, poor Mac is under going treatment for gastric ulcers at a cost of £690 but is coming on great.

We are always happy to offer advice to owners struggling with their geriatrics.

R.I.P. DOLLY

We are heart broken to announce that our lovely Dolly, aged 37yo, collapsed on 15th November and couldn’t get back up, as her back legs had completely given up on her, we sadly had to make the decision to put her to sleep. Dolly captured all our hearts here at the sanctuary, she was gaining weight and her character was coming out, she was a pleasure to have if only for a short time.

Our thoughts are with Dolly’s previous owner of 27 years
