Patient of the Month

Sophie September 2020

Gorgeous (but very poorly) Sophie came to the surgery after losing weight and becoming breathless on walks.

After blood tests, xrays and other tests, she was diagnosed with a lungworm infection - this had not only affected her lungs, but reduced her bloods ability to clot, putting her at high risk of internal bleeding.

Two transfusions and a long hospital stay later, she is finally on the mend!! She was an amazing dog to nurse - such a gentle lady and such a fighter!!

Attached are some photos of her receiving her transfusion and also one photo of her well on the road to recovery and with a brightness back in her eyes!

Please remember that lungworm can be fatal and preventative products are available
