Stray rehomed after vet operates free of charge

Ruffles with Head Vet Antony Bada and Vet Kim BarrowA stray puppy that required major orthopaedic surgery has been rehomed.

Haven Veterinary Group waived their fees to treat the stray after the 18 month old dog was picked up by Hull City Council’s Dog Warden in the Orchard Park area. The dog, a Jack Russell type puppy that Haven staff named Ruffles, was taken to Holderness Road surgery by staff at Carr House Rescue Centre, from where she was rehomed.

Of the Femoral Head Excision procedure, Haven Veterinary Group owner and principal vet, Jim Morris said: “We had no alternative to surgery in order to free the dog from pain. We were pleased with the surgery and are delighted that he has a new home and is recovering well.”

Norma Anderson from Carr House Rescue Centre said: “Thanks to the generosity of the team at Haven, Ruffles is doing well. He was rehomed by Sue Grantham who lives in Withernsea and it is hoped that walks on the beach will help his leg become stronger.”

Senior Practice Administrator, Evie Beattie said: “We work closely with Carr House Rescue Centre and we couldn’t let the puppy suffer.”
