Tiger


Tiger is an old cat, shall we say of a very certain age, who decided he was going to move into a new home having grown weary of a life on the streets!

Having made himself comfortable and ensured his new landlady, who happens to be a widow who enjoys his company very much, was a suitable cook, cleaner and lap provider for him, Tiger began to show some worrying signs. He could not settle, he was always hungry, his heart was racing and his coat was in terrible condition.

Tiger's new owner brought him along just to have his coat sorted out. When she realised the problem was far more complex than a quick going over with the clippers, she dug deep and funded his costly operation to remove his thyroid gland and hospitalisation.

Tiger has now gone home and made a good recovery. His is a lovely heart-warming story of how vets can help pets get better, the role that pets have in our lives, and if you're a true animal lover (like Tiger's new owner) how we are prepared to fund the necessary veterinary procedures.

Opening hours: 8am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 12 Noon Saturdays, 9am to 11am Sundays and Bank Holidays, 24/7 - 365 day emergency service
