Mac – April Pet of the Month

Mac – April Pet Of the Month

Mac is a lovable 10 year old crossbreed dog. His owner noticed that he was finding it difficult to pass faeces and were worried that there was something serious wrong. After an examination with one of our Veterinary surgeons, Mr Doherty, he was quickly diagnosed with a perineal hernia, which can be a very uncomfortable condition. He was immediately admitted to The Animal Hospital for further treatment.

Mac had to have multiple enemas to clear his blockage before a surgery could be attempted on the problem area. He quickly grew popular with the nurses here and his little face and wagging tail, never failed to put a smile on our faces.

After a successful surgery last week, Mac is recovering very well. He will be back for a final check over next week and once the vet is happy with his progress , his life can return to normal. He is awarded April Pet of the Month.
