    Touching report from Bickerstaffe's Netty Hodson

    'Every now and then an animal story touches you...

    Boo was cruelly dumped aged around 16 months after being used to breed from.

    She was skeletal and had about 48 hours to live; while running scared she was hit by a car in between Liverpool and Bickerstaffe and we genuinely feared she would die.

    She weighed just 23kg (she should have weighed around 55kg) She was cared for by Carla Lane for three weeks and then I became her forever mum on the 4th April and took her on and I have cherished her ever since.

    On the 19th June, I thought I was going to lose her... Her breathing was funny so I took her the vets (Rufford Vets), they kept her in to run some tests and called me in the afternoon to say they had removed 3 litres of fluid from her chest ... all signs pointing towards heart failure .... so she was referred to Northwest Veterinary Specialists for further investigation......good news is it’s not her heart, however she’s got a diaphragmatic hernia, diaphragm Rupture and her liver and gall bladder are currently sitting in her chest.

    They took her straight down to theatre and thankfully she’s doing well... they have had to remove some of her liver and some lung & liver lobes... they had to open up her chest and cut through her sternum to sort out all of he mess so although she is out of surgery she is critical for the next 48 hours.

    I told the vet he doesn’t know my Boo and that she will be up and about tomorrow .... she will need to stay in for observations.

    Although Boo is insured they will only cover up to £3,000 for her treatment, I’ve had a bill of £5,800 for the above operation..... We also now know she will require a full hip replacement and although she is insured, my claim was rejected and Surgery will cost around £7,000.

    Boo shows nothing but kindness, love and trust despite the horrific start she's had in her short life.

    I took Boo on and was unaware of what problems were ahead and I wouldn’t change a thing..... I will find a way as my Boo deserves only the best.'
