Vet Diary - Hear 'Ear!

When we received a phone call from Middlesbrough council's holding kennels to say they had a dog with blood pouring from his head, we really did not know what to expect. As soon as we were contacted, we sent an animal ambulance out to collect him. The elderly terrier was brought straight to the veterinary clinic at our animale wlefare centre, where he was immediately assessed. He was in a collapsed condition, shocked, and caked in faeces and blood. The blood was coming from a large tumour which filled his ear canal. He also had a large tumour of his right testicle. He received a warm bath and pain relief, plus antibiotic for the infected tumour in his ear, and was immediately more comfortable.

He was 13 years old and very frail, we were not sure if he would even survive a general anaesthetic, let alone whether or not our veterinary team could successfully remove the tumour. He was such a sweetheart, we knew we had to give it a try! Thankfully the tumour came out cleanly and he made an excellent recovery.

Sad news

Published 07/04/2019
When dear little Poppy arrived at Stray Aid on 9th October 2018, we were so very worried about her. She was 15 years old, blind and deaf, and with a host of age-related problems, we knew that only a very special person would take her on.  Thankfully she touched the heart of George who volunteers at our Blackhall charity shop, he came down and met her, and that was it! They fell in...…read more
