Star Patient October 2018

Mickey is a splendid young man with very dedicated and loving owners who did all that we asked of them to treat his debilitating skin condition. This all started with a little itch near his tail base but soon spread to involve large areas of his body.

Read on to find out how we were able to pinpoint the exact cause of his condition, what alternatives we considered, and how we had to try different treatments before we found one that worked really well for him.

Most cases that we see are interesting and in many we manage to save or extend lives. We like to choose a case each month to tell you about. If you have a pet that you would like to be a 'Star' contact us and let us know. High quality images will be really useful too.

Your story doesn't just need to involve veterinary cases - we are also interested in other tales - who have you rescued and why? How has a pet helped you and your family?
