Daisy’s Trip to the Vet

  • Post category:Health

Daisy has been poorly the last day or so - her abdomen is lumpy and her demeanour has deteriorated sharply. Unfortunately we know these signs and all that we can do in this situation is give her the best final days we can - plenty of treats and cuddles and…

White’s First Trip to the Vet

  • Post category:Health

In the 3 years that we've had White, she's been relatively healthy and trouble-free. The last few weeks however, she's had quiet moments that have usually been followed by her laying a soft shelled egg, but she's bounced back to her usual self. In the last few days however, she's…
