Manson's story

Rottweiler cross Manson got a nasty lump on his tail, and also has recurring problems with fleas. His owner David has come to PDSA hoping for some solutions.

Manson was adopted seven years ago, when David was working as a care worker. But when he started to suffer from depression and anxiety he had to give up work. Benefits help him to keep his head above water while he’s unwell, and PDSA helps him to keep his best friend Manson healthy.

Manson had a lump on his tail that has recently burst and is now in danger of getting infected.  He needs urgent surgery to clean and close it up. Vet Holly carries out the procedure and although it’s fairly low risk, it’s a worrying wait for David while he waits for news, as Manson means the world to him.

Bruno

Staffie cross Bruno was out on a walk and got a nasty cut on his paw. His owner Bethany has booked him into PDSA Huyton for surgery

Dogs can run into all sorts of scrapes while out on walks, and poor Bruno cut his paw pad on something. It’s a common injury that vets often see, but can take a long time to heal by itself, risking infection.

So it’s best to sew the wound up to help it heal quickly, and Vet Hayley is down to do the procedure.
