Helping Felix bounce back
When Felix suddenly fell ill with breathing difficulties, he was rushed to the vets. Felix was diagnosed with a heart condition and needed to have half a pint of fluid drained from him. His owner, a pensioner, couldn’t afford the costs so he turned to Woodgreen for help. We supported him towards the initial expense of veterinary treatment. Felix, who also has hyperthyroidism, will be on medication for the rest of his life. But with a loving owner taking care of him, he’s in good hands. And a donation of food and a toy from Woodgreen helped get his recovery off to a great start.
Woodgreen Outreach Officer, Jo, says: “Thanks to Pets at Home, our Outreach Team was able to provide Felix’s owner with free food, as well as a special gift for Felix for being such a brave boy! The vouchers have been invaluable. They allow us to give that extra support to owners to ease the pressure while going through financial hardship – meaning they are not having to choose between feeding themselves and feeding their pets.”
Felix’s owner tells us, “I cannot thank you enough. It has helped me enormously. Felix loves his toy – he seems to have adopted it.”
