Vet Diary - Wash and Squash

Vinnie was just a young pup, full of fun and games when he arrived. The poor pup had been out scavenging when he'd found an old tuna tin, when he'd tried to lick the tin the lid clamped down on his poor tongue! Vinnie needed a general anaesthetic in order to remove the tin. If he had not been found in time, he would have starved to death. 

Vinnie was very lucky, his life was saved because he was found and brought to Stray Aid where our vet was able to help. It didn't take long to find him a family!

Please remember to “wash and squash” any tins that have contained food, and remove the lids completely. Even traces of food left inside can tempt animals to lick them out. Also wildlife can get their heads stuck inside tins, they cannot eat and slowly starve. Please remember, REMOVE THE LID, then WASH AND SQUASH!!
