We have a very special Wednesday Wish this week.
Fudge, the centre of our universe, was run over by a car on Saturday morning. Our local vet was closed, so we had to rush to their Halifax branch to get him seen. The prognosis wasn’t good – amputation, euthanasia or an emergency orthopaedic operation. There was only one option that we were willing to choose – squeamish readers may want to look away now!
The operation was too specialised for the vets at West Mount so they had to refer us elsewhere. A fantastic vet, Nick Blackburn, of Calder Vets in Dewsbury did an incredible job inserting metal pins & plates into the broken bones in his front left leg. Nick has been great at keeping us informed of everything that was happening and (tried to anyway!) put us at ease.
Fudge was allowed home on Tuesday night – groggy, disoriented and completely off his food – it’s going to be a long, slow recovery. We wish him to be all better soon!
