A Vet Nurse's Diary
A vet nurses diary: helping to remove a foreign body Yesterday I was on operations. First there were a few admissions to get through, including a four-year-old terrier cross who had come in for x-rays. She had been lame for a while and the owner was keen for us to do further investigations. The owner was also keen for pre-op bloods to be done, as she was a rescue dog and no history was available. After she was admitted, she had her bloods taken and settled into the kennels until the results came through. All the other admissions had been done, so I headed down to theatre to start setting up the operations. ...<Read full diary

Abandoned puppy farm mum finds her perfect homeAbandoned puppy farm mum finds her perfect home

An ex-puppy farm dog has found the perfect loving home after appearing at this year's Pup Aid event.

Violet, a six-year-old mastiff-cross, was taken in by Wood Green after she was found abandoned and suffering from serious health problems. It was obvious to staff that she had been used as a breeding bitch before being deemed too old.

The animal shelter thought she would make an excellent ambassador for the Pup Aid campaign, which fights to end puppy farming across the UK. Violet appeared at Parliament Square while MPs debated the issue of puppy farming recently, as well as visiting this year's Pup Aid event.

As if by fate, it was during this event that Violet found her new owner - dog groomer and devoted Mastiff lover Donna-Marie Law.

Donna said: "It was our third time at Pup Aid and as we went past Wood Green my eldest son actually said 'look Mum, there's your next dog'. I said 'no' but was back 20 minutes later, chatting to the Wood Green team and I was hooked."
