This beautiful lad is Larry who was 3 years old when he came to us from the pound.
He was in our kennels just under a week and was the daftest fool going. Especially enjoyed his pamper at the poof parlour!
Larry started to suffer major seizures and when he came back round would become very aggressive. We suspected epilepsy and were arranging for the vet to come and see him. Unfortunately before this happened, Larry experienced another massive seizure and having come round and been let out for a run later, he circled and then bit the kennel owner. Fortunately puncture wounds rather than tears, but totally unexpected.
The head vet came to visit and watched as Larry went into another seizure. He had blood coming from his nose and the vet quickly established this was not epilepsy. The sensible decision was made that Larry had to be put to sleep for his own welfare and for the staff’s safety.
Once Larry had passed, he had brown liquid oozing from his nose. His eyes were bloodshot but not in the normal way, they were yellow and orange. His abdomen was swollen. We cannot say for sure what this poor lad was suffering from, but suspect some form of cancerous tumour which reached a point of no return.
Larry is now at peace at Rainbow Bridge. We are all very sad we could not do anything for this lovely lad, but furious that this was probably the reason his original owners just dumped him and left him to be picked up as a stray. When will people start taking responsibility for these poor animals!!
