Hello and welcome to Jess. Such a sweet old lady. She was rescued in her greyer years when her previous owners were too old to care for her or themselves amymore. Rehoming makes a scar on anyone and any animal. So Jess was fearful for quite some time. Her owner had 2 dogs and one was already a regular for physio, so mum brought both of them to see us. Jess was only along for the experiance.
Over time jess really started to relax in our room. It was so sweet to see how her whole face changed. She even chose to lay on the treatment bed after the other dog was finished But she remained scared at the vets.
We have an amazing relationship with all the vets we work with and pride ourselves on this. So when Jess started to have some problems we worked together as a team to be able to treat her and not traumatise her. There was impecible communication between all the team, and as Donna is also a registered veterinary nurse, it was an easy process.
Issues were identified. Namely a sore back and right shoulder, and also she had a wart growing inside her eyelid. This was also sore.
The vets prescribed eye drops and Donna was able to give tips on how to put them in safely. Donna also treated the back and shoulder with massage. Jess was clearly incredibly grateful and tolerated it all.
She is already free of spasm and a very happy and mobile dog.
Great team work by all. Keep up the excellent work mum. It takes calm care to put these worried dogs at ease.
