INTRO

Each day our vets treat 5,300 pets and that huge number is set to rise further in the year ahead.

We’re facing a huge increase in demand for our services to treat sick and injured pets – but our existing premises are busting at the seams! Our new Pet Hospital will be able to provide a bigger and better waiting room that will help pets to feel more relaxed when they arrive. It will offer separate recovery wards for pets, helping dogs, cats and small furries to recuperate in a warm, safe and stress-free environment.

We already have our building plans in place, but there’s a long way to go before our new Pet Hospital will be ready to accept sick and injured pets. It’s vital that each room is built and equipped – from the clean and sterile operating theatre where vets can savepets’ lives, to the diagnostic suite, where our vets will be able to diagnose pets in a ‘non invasive’ manner, and provide immediate or same-day results.

Case Study 

Six-year-old Ellie was deeply upset when Lady, her tiny Shih Tzu puppy, had to go to the vet’s. Her mother Sarah said: “I noticed Lady had started sitting in a funny position, with her body slightly twisted. Then she went off her food and squeaked when Ellie picked her up.” Lady was taken to a PDSA Pet Hospital in Old Trafford, Manchester where vet, James Friars said: “An x-ray revealed some abdominal anomalies although it wasn’t possible to make a definite diagnosis. But when we examined her abdomen we could definitely feel a thickening of the intestine.” After an internal operation to find out what the problem was they found a 4½-inch lolly stick inside her. PDSA vets were amazed that the stick hadn’t caused any serious internal damage. James continued: “If it had been left untreated it could have pierced her intestines causing potentially fatal peritonitis so Lady is a very lucky girl!” Thankfully Lady made a full recovery much to the relief of the whole family, and Ellie is delighted to have her playmate home safe again.
