Success stories

Sylvester

Sylvester came to us in August 2019. He had been found after a Road Traffic Accident on the A22, after escaping from his owner's home after she had moved house. After scanning his microchip, we got in contact with his owner. Sylvester had sustained multiple injuries, including severe head injuries and a fractured jaw. He remained with us as an inpatient for 3 weeks, during which we provided 24 hour care, medication and fluids. He later had surgery to mend his jaw once he was stable, when he was then hospitalised for several more days to provide support in his recovery. Sylvester later had more problems with his eye, as a result of the previous accident, which lead to an operation to remove it.

Sylvester has now fully recovered! He is happy and healthy and enjoying his time with his owner! He was recently made our “Star Pet”, for being such a lovely patient!

Kesch

Kesch came to us in My Bernese Mountain Dog had to be admitted for an emergency operation for bloat. Even though it was only about an hour after eating his food, it was very touch and go as to whether he would survive. I cannot thankThe Forest Vet staff enough for the fantastic job they did to treat him and make him well. He was back to his usual lively self very quickly after spending three nights in intensive care. Thank you so much for a thoroughly professional job and for making me feel at ease at such a critical event.

Bertie

Bertie is a local success story! He went missing for ten days having chased a deer out of his garden. His poor family had a huge following on social media to try and locate him and he was found stuck trapped in a fence on a Saturday afternoon. He was rushed in as an out of hours emergency patient, extremely dehydrated, hypothermic and malnourished, systemically in shock and with a piece of wire cutting off the circulation to one of his hindlimbs. He was admitted into our hospital for intensive care over the weekend but unfortunately had to have his hindlimb amputated once he was stabilised. He is now back with his family with a new brother called Oscar enjoying life on three legs! As a team we all became extremely fond of this extremely courageous little Spaniel and always look forward to his visits!
