Flossie after her recent cut and finish ready for the Fun Day.
Flossie was found abandoned with health problems. She is about 2yo. She has now had a major operation and had 3 large bladder stones removed which caused her terrible pain. She has come through her operation very well and now needs lots of TLC. Her illness has affected her walking so it is going to take some time to get right. We will keep you updated. If you would like to support Flossie please go to our Donate to FTR UK page for details of how to send a donation.
Upate on Flossie.......She is doing well. Has put on some weight but is still under the Vet. Her operation was a great success but is taking longer for the bladder infection to go. She is on medication and special food and is fortnightly visiting the Vet. So not ready for re homing yet. She is a loving little girl and never complains. The Vets just love her. Sometime in her life something happened to her hind legs? She walks wobbly but runs like the clappers when chasing a ball, so has learnt to live with it. January 2016
Flossie's back legs have got worse and sometimes she cannot balance very well. We wish to refer her to 'THE SUPER VET' but we need your help. If you are able to send a donation please go to our Donate to FTR UK page here on the website for details and mark it FOR FLOSSIE. Many thanks. March 2016
UPDATE June 2016 Flossie Xrays showed damage to the lower part of her back, she is on tablets for a couple of weeks until we hear from a specialist to what can be done.
UPDATE August 2016 We have finally had results back for Flossie and is sad news that nothing can be done for her at the moment. Unfortunately it is going to cost thousands and still may not have a happy result.
BUT we are not giving up. We are investing in a kind of Hot Tub and converting it so Flossie can be on a special harness and swim so to build up muscles as best we can and be fitted with a Cart so she can go out and about until perhaps something can be done. She is a young dog and we will prevail.
If this Tub is successful will be open to any small/medium breed that needs help in strengthening
muscles. Only a small donation to rescue will be required to keep up maintenance.
UPDATE October 2016
She has deteriorated quite rapidly but Lee has found a French Veterinary Group that have designed a cart which builds up the muscle when moving along. Rescue have ordered one to hire for 3 months and if it works will buy one. It costs a lot £1600 but will use the money raised from the Fun Day. We wait for its arrival.
