Mary the Ewe

25 Mar 2012

This weekend has been quite busy, we rehomed two Pygmy Goats, unfortunately though two sheep came in. This poor girl is Mary, her owners made contact the day they were moving house, desperately needing a home for poor Mary. Although we were reluctant to take on any more sheep, as we now have 2 rams and 6 ewes, how […]

Hedgehog with `Balloon Syndrome’

05 Mar 2012

This guy came to us today, the member of the public who brought him said, ” I have a huge hedgehog for you”. We soon diagnosed balloon syndrome which, left untreated is almost always fatal.

Pigeon with Broken Leg

4 Little Piggies Don’t go to Market!

10 Nov 2011

Micro-pigs were all the rage a year or so ago, now the novelty has worn off, people have realised that these intelligent, clean, highly sociable animals need love and attention and if not given that attention, can soon become destructive, not to mention grow much larger than the cute adverts imply. Consequently interest in their long-term welfare […]
