Pet of the Month

This December we are announcing our very first ‘Pet of the Month’.

We do, of course, love all our patients, be they young or old, big or small, cheerful or grumpy! They all have their unique personalities and endearing characteristics.

However sometimes we are struck by the particular loyalty or bravery of a pet, often when they are going through difficult treatment or helping their owner through a challenging time.

With that in mind, we thought it would be nice recognise and celebrate these pets and to share a little bit of their story with you.

Please check back to see if your furry friend could be our Pet of the Month!

December’s Pet of the Month

Pet of the Month

This is Sam, our December ‘Pet of the Month’.

Ten year old Sam is a rescue Jack Russell cross who came from Ireland when he was around 2 years old.

Not much is known about his early life but he was probably a farm dog who had never lived in a house. Sam loves having a warm home, a comfy bed and plenty of treats. His favourite toys are balls – he likes chasing a tennis ball outdoors and playing with a small squeaky rugby ball inside.

He is a quiet, gentle and affectionate dog who greets everyone with a waggy tail (especially if they rub his head!) He is a loyal companion and his lovely nature has helped several children get over their fear of dogs.

Sam has recently started treatment for skin cancer, but despite his troubles he is such a cheerful and kind little dog that we felt he definitely deserved to be our first ever Pet of the Month!
