Sue , Danz and Loz had a trip to London today for Loz to see a specialist we hope will sort out her dislocating jaw . The ladies stopped for lunch and sue soon spots a pigeon hobbling outside the restaurant so armed with some chips as bait managed to capture the poor bird ,as she suspects it has cotton caught round it’s feet. Sue naturally had a small sharp pair if scissors in her handbag and is able to remove the ligature that has been imbedded so long it has already lost some toes , it’s legs were also tied together. The curious onlookers were pleased to see the bird fly off when it was released although it soon came back …..Loz took a photo of sue shooing the street cleaner away so that the pigeon could finish his chips !Continue reading →

We are inundated with cat victims at the moment many of which we are told are not injured. Even though there may not be an obvious injury, being crushed by a cats mouth when the bird tries to escape can cause internal damage such as an air leak which i…Continue reading →

The amputee goat is now on strong pain relief medication and antibiotics . The wound looks unpleasant as there is a drain (the yellow bits sticking out) stitched in place . She has been up and walking and seemed very keen to return back to her companio…Continue reading →
We were recently asked to board two goats who’s owner had passed away . A lovely home was ready for them with a lady we have rehomed goats to before. Although we had been informed one of the girls had only three legs when she arrived it was evident that the missing leg had not been surgically removed and the bone was sticking through a badly infected wound, so we had no option but to get her stable on medication before the remaining piece of leg was properly amputated. Preparing the area for surgery took longer than the operation but armed with a power tool Debra did a splendid job ! The goat was back on her 3 legs within the hour !Continue reading →
