Are we loving our pets to death?


When I first saw this photo I had a chuckle because this cat is so obese, it looks almost cartoonish! But then I began to feel sad that this poor animal is so overweight, it must hardly be able to move and live a normal cat-like existence. In fact, I started to feel really sorry for this cat! I think it may be trying to groom itself in this photo but it looks like it is having a struggle!

Murphy and Dudley

I have not actually written this blog but I am going to introduce it! Our clinic is privileged to have Andrea as a client and her delightful animals as our patients. She has shared a beautiful story about her rescued pets and their impact in her life at a critical time. She has called this story 'The Power of Two', but I think it should really be called 'The Power of Three' because Andrea is such a strong advocate for animal welfare- her actions speak for themselves. Thank you Andrea for allowing us to share your story. You are an inspiration to us!

She is one of many dogs who suffer from extreme anxiety during thunderstorms. During a storm she becomes extremely frantic and broke through this door trying to find a spot to hide away. Her owners were upset to think about how distressed she must get and sought help at our clinic.
