3rd Sept....We have been notified of a poorly Doberman pup needing thevets. After a quick chat, it was decided it best he came in to Rescue and saw our vets immediately. Huge thank you to Fenton Vets for speedy and excellent service, We have christened him Remus and he’s now on a heat pad and a drip and we await blood results.
4th Sept ...Angels if we've ever needed a miracle it’s now!! The vets have called it’s not looking good. Remus has two interceptions one in small intestine one at the colon. To save him they’ll have to remove one meter of intestine! We’ve told them to try but they’re not hopeful
We can’t let him go without at least trying
Are we sure he will survive? Honestly? No we're not BUT there’s one thing we can be sure of and that’s he has a much better chance than he would if we’d done nothing.
Remus bill stands at £2500 so far so we are asking all our wonderful animal loving friends to donate just a couple of pound! It would be a huge help and his treatment will be ongoing for sometime so will mean we can keep giving him the absolute best.

5th Sept....We don’t want to tempt fate and he’s really not out of the woods but Remus is definitely looking brighter. He’s shown some interest in a tiny amount of food and is enjoying all the fuss.
Here he is this morning :)
6th Sept....Just been to see Remus again this morning and he continues to do very well. He’s got the whole veterinary team wrapped around his little paw. They are really pleased with his progress and we have made the plan the if he continues to improve as he is he could be discharged on Friday afternoon. He’s a monkey...He’s very happy, and shouting for attention!
Meds this morning then drip off after he’s had his meds... eating like a trooper!!
Progressing Every minute
Remus already has an excellent foster home offer and future planned with DRUE but we are still playing everything day by day.
Huge thank you for everyone’s kind donations today, Remus really does have an army of people behind him! And for that he and we will always be eternally grateful. He really is a special boy
7th Sept......Remus continues to do well, quick chat with the vet nurse this morning and we will discuss with Vet this afternoon the next step. Looking at discharging maybe this afternoon or tomorrow. He’s on all of his meds orally now as well!
Good boy Remus step closer to recovery!
Sept 8th.....Brilliant news today!
Remus has been discharged into foster care just a few minutes from the practice. His feeding tube has been removed and I’ve chatted with his fosterer and he seems to be settling ok. Showing interested in the calm whippets he will live with!
Thank you to June for fostering him! Let’s hope this stage goes well.....we will keep you posted!
What a difference in just a week. So much love has brought this fab little guy through so far. Huge thank you to everyone for the amazing donations & well wishes!
Sept 10th....Remus update and all is going well he’s bright and active but he has lost 100g, our Vets are not overly concerned all things considered. He was so happy having lots of attention today at Fenton vets, even took a small treat of the practice manager!
Made a plan for his feeding and as long as no problems plan to recheck in a week. Next milestone will be some weight gain that will make everyone very happy.
Six days clear of surgery and he’s still with us!#miraclesdohappen
14th Sept....FANTASTIC Remus update..... Had a weigh in today with his favorite nurse Kim Griffiths and he has gained 200g!! June his foster mum is doing a simply amazing job! He looks bright and very well, inquisitive and much more like a puppy should!
17th Sept....AMAZING NEWS! Remus had a check up this afternoon and has gained 500g! He’s now up to 7.1kg! June is doing a remarkable job and we think we can say he has turned the corner!
With your fantastic support, donations and kind words, along with some amazing veterinary skills at Fenton Vets we have saved this little lads life!
Brilliant outcome. Well done and thank you to everyone involved, especially June who has put her life on hold to nurse Remus! We are already in conversations with his new Mum and Dad about how to manage the transition into their care so we will post more about this when plans are finalised!
Job well done GREEN ARMY job well done!!
19th Sept.....Not such good news for our Remus today. He has had a recurrence of diarrhea & has lost some weight. He is being closely monitored by our fabulous vets at Fenton & has a new course of antibiotics. Come on boy, you can do this!!
