A Willows' Christmas Message
25 December 2016
Wow! - it’s finally here
– it’s Christmas Day!!!
What a year we’ve had – with many of your lovely pets challenging our Specialists - Bonnie, Rogue, Carlos, Bella, Bobby, Marley, Henry, Florence, Billy, Max, Scrappy, Stevie, Arnold, Treacle, Scooby and Rosie - you know who you are - and so many more besides!
Just a few of the challenging patients which Willows' Specialists saw in 2016
At our Family Open Day in October we launched our latest charity donation campaign, which will see £1,000 donated to either Cramar Cat Sanctuary, Guide Dogs or Pet Blood Bank. We had puppies, or rather Ivy did (Ivy is a breeding bitch for Guide Dogs for the Blind), Tiny Teddy became one of the smallest patients in the world to undergo surgery for a congenital heart defect, Spooky Boo learnt to walk (and run) again after a spinal cord injury, English Bulldog, Bailey had surgery to improve his breathing and our dog blood donor sessions (in conjunction with Pet Blood Bank UK) have gone from strength to strength, with a fantastic number of hero doggy donors giving blood to help dogs with life-threatening and complex illnesses.
With the launch of new Specialist clinics for Feline Medicine and Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome in the Autumn, and our new Nutrition Service which will launch early in 2017, our team has expanded rapidly during the year, and our Specialist vets are amongst some of the world's most experienced and respected working in their fields and have the support of an outstanding team of veterinary nurses and veterinary nurse assistants.
We recently held our annual Christmas Jumper Day for charity. The total donated by staff was £71.60, this has kindly been matched by Willows so the total amount donated to The Salvation Army is £143.20!
As 2016 draws to a close, the entire team at Willows would like to thank you all, and wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
