If you can spare just a few pounds towards the cost of their life saving treatment please read below:

You may recall a short while ago we reported that our loveable little collie Tim had to be rushed to the vets after he was very sick from eating what was described as a piece of hard plastic, Tim required emergency surgery to remove a piece of his bowel that had become blocked and a lot of aftercare at the vets to ensure he was recovering properly from a very major operation! He is thankfully now on the mend. We have also now removed, and keep a close eye on, any plastics within his reach since this episode.

Teddy is another long term resident who had to visit the vets recently due to over indulging in his biggest vice – FOOD! Following our last open day, Teddy had been begging for food from everyone who would pander to him and we know how hard it is to say no to his beautiful face. Unfortunately this resulted in him getting a very badly bloated and upset stomach and he had to visit the vet to help remedy this. Don't worry this box was empty when he stole it!

Our usual monthly vets bill for our small animals is usually no more than £100-200, however, due to these two events our most recently received bill has totalled at just over £900!! This is after the very generous discounts that we receive from Cedar Grove Veterinary Clinic and as you can imagine a huge blow to our finances when we are trying to keep costs down.

If there is anyone who could help us by contributing even a small amount towards this bill then please either visit to make a donation online or contact Cedar Grove directly where one of their staff are more than happy to take a donation on our behalf towards our bill.

You can contact Cedar Grove on 028 9079 8457
