Our Rosie Posie is at the vet today having a couple of mammary lumps removed. They’re very small so hopefully her recovery won’t be too bad. She was somewhat perplexed at us leaving her there.

BJ had his Cushings test and definitely doesn’t have Cushings so the mystery remains! However, he’s regained his weight and it looks as though his hair is starting to grow back so we’ll just continue to keep an eye on him for now and see how he goes.

Sophie had an X-ray while she was having her dental and it was discovered that her heart was enlarged - so she’s started on medication for that. She also had quite a few teeth out. She was on quite a cocktail of pills for a few days but that’s reduced now.

Maisie might be next! I’ve noticed the last couple of days that she is drinking for an extraordinarily long time and is not as energetic as she was - staying in bed with the two little girls, Chloe and Sophie when all the others go down the back to do the morning chores. I think we’ll get a blood test done to see if everything’s okay 👌🏻

Often these things seem to occur in spates!

Sounds like you need a doggie hospital ward bless your heart 💗

Good luck speedy recovery

You have a lot on your plate at the moment.... Guess it's never ending really.... And I only have two!

We had to get Dora’s mammary lumps removed too, we didn’t use the collar instead wrapped her stitches loosely in bandages and put a stretch n grow on her so she could be comfortable and not lick her stitches. Good luck Rosie Posie, BJ, Sophie and Chloe. Xxx

Poor Rosie! Hope all goes well and she has a speedy recovery! I agree and these things all seem to happen at the same time! Sun also had suspected Cushing once because she lost so much hair and her skin became black but turns out she didn’t and it was unexplained alopecia and we changed her food and all went back to normal. One of these things I guess!

Hope everything will sort itself out and every little one is well again. 💗💞💕

Hope Masie and Rosie will be ok sending lots of hugs not just for them but to all the Hope Springs gang x x 💕💕💕🐶🐶

Hope all Goes Well For All The Little Dogs ,must be that time of the year i have one just started on heart tabs he seems to have more energy 🐾💜

Surprised and delighted

https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=MjVPR2DQye4Recently we were surprised when Destination Happiness (a lifestyle television show on Channel 9) came out to visit and film a segment for Happy Pets at Hope Springs.

We were even more surprised when Petstock presented us with a cheque for $15,000 for our Pay it Paw-ward Program – helping us to “Keep pets and people together”.

We are very grateful for Pet-Stocks support of local communities and small charities making a direct difference to the wellbeing of their local community. Click here to see the segment.
