Latest News & Requests



Running Many Tears can be like a rollercoaster at times. We have our ups and downs. Sometimes we can get a lot of "down" times all at once and that is how things are here right now.

Our biggest concern is finance. Already in the last month we paid for Dunoon the Shih Tzu puppy to have a liver shunt operation and we have another pup Mop who possibly will need the same surgery.

Three ex-breeding dogs received the Gift of Sight from Grove Lodge Vets and Rowe Vet and we are absolutely delighted that Ardith, Dawlish and Dancer are now able to see after so long living in darkness. Their operations are costly even though we are given a generous discount which we are incredibly grateful for. Fiona and Fidel are two more dogs waiting to be given the Gift of Sight but funds for this are well below what has already been spent.

Helen and Heather are 2 lab puppies with heart conditions. They have both been assessed by a specialist vet consultant (our sincere thanks to Langford Vets in Bristol for being so supportive as always). Sadly their prognosis is not as good as we hoped for and their future in uncertain as the costs of any operation is massive and not guaranteed success so we are considering all the options in conjunction with the consultants. Whatever happens we will of course be there for them to ensure their quality of life is good and any medication is paid for but the cost so far has already been nearly £1000.

We currently have 5 dogs with serious medical conditions that needed to seen by a specialist orthopaedic vet which is very expensive. Each dog has their own personality, their own needs and without their operations nearly all will be restricted and uncomfortable. Each has a future where, if they receive these surgeries they can be free to enjoy their new lives to the full, and of course this is what we wish for them. Below are the dogs who are currently under specialist orthopaedic vet care,

Yvonne and Pearl
Yvonne is a bichon fries who arrived here with her jaw broken. She has been to see the specialist at Hafron Vets and has a chronic pathological fracture. Her teeth are bad and her jaw has deteriorated to a very bad state of decay which continued down into her jaw bone. To repair this would be a huge operation which involved locking plates and bone grafts but the specialist has recommended we monitor her and she will return to them in 6 weeks when a decision will be made.

Pearl is another bichon who was not as lucky as Yvonne. Her broken jaw was far more complex and is harder to mend. She has had to have her jaws wired together and a phangostomy tube inserted for feeding. Her jaw now needs to rest completely and for the next six weeks she will need to be fed via her tube. We are hoping for a local fosterer to step forwards so she can have this done in a relaxed home environment.

Hemi
Hemi is a Pomeranian also went to Hafren Vets and has been diagnosed with Grade 4 slipping patellas which needs to be corrected surgically.

Ivy
Ivy the beagle also saw the specialist and has an acute ruptured cruciate in her right hind leg. She will need an operation to repair this once she has lost some weight.

Carlisle
Carlisle the Labrador has Grade 4 lateral patellar luxation and will need surgery to correct this. She will be having this done at Hafren Vets.

Inca
Inca the Westie has been to see the specialist investigate lameness in her right leg. They believe she has an old injury to either her cruciate or patellar but need to do an exploratory operation to investigate this further.

The cost of our specialist vets bills last month came to around £7,000 plus we also have our own vet bills to pay for the daily spays, neuters and other general surgeries and consultations that take place here. So as you can see our financial burden is extremely heavy right now and we are turning to all supporters of Many Tears for help.
