Emma, one of our supporters, is a cardiology nurse at Pride Veterinary Centre in Derby and recently helped us out with Stilton – one of the Sheffield 13. Here’s an update from Pride’s facebook page:
Stilton is one of 13 senior greyhounds recently rescued by Tia Rescue.
Due to the neglect they suffered, all have various health concerns with most needing urgent dental care. They were all assessed by Tia’s vets, and there was concern that Stilton might have a heart problem.
Our cardiology nurse, Emma, is a supporter of Tia Rescue (since one of her own dogs is a Tia dog) and heard that he needed a cardiology assessment. As she is currently working towards becoming a Veterinary Technician Specialist (VTS) in cardiology, she has had to learn to perform basic heart scans and so with the support of our cardiologist Julie, Emma was able to bring Stilton down to Pride Veterinary Centre for a day trip to perform his scan and chest x-rays.
Luckily for Stilton no serious problems were found and he was deemed safe to have his urgently needed dental.
In true greyhound style, despite his past Stilton was a star all day, lying perfectly for his x-rays and scan.. lapping up all the love he could get!
The Sheffield 13 continue to make progress, thanks to your fantastic support.
