This kind of tumour is quite common in cats and, in most cases, can be surgically removed - so Ninny was rushed in for emergency surgery to relieve the pressure on her brain which was causing her side effects.
After surgery Ninny recovered extremely quickly from her ordeal and was discharged home just eight days later!
Three months on and she had returned to her normal self again and her owners sent us this lovely photo of her enjoying spending time in the garden again. Has your dog or cat undergone a similar treatment at the AHT? Let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The AHT’s oldest swimmer, George has been attending hydrotherapy sessions for nearly two years now and has benefited greatly from his treatment!
Carol, George's owner, said: “George was diagnosed with arthritis and he could hardly walk at all but he’s a totally different dog now – we couldn’t recommend hydrotherapy or the AHT highly enough. It’s improved his life tremendously, and I think without the sessions we’d have lost him by now.”
Roxy was treated by our oncology department last July for a mast cell tumour. First our surgical team operated to remove the tumour, then Roxy had six months of chemotherapy treatment.
Eve, Roxy's owner, said: “The staff were amazing. We love her very much and can't thank the oncology department enough for their help and support during some difficult times.”
Roxy is currently still coming in to see us for a check-up every three months but is doing really well.
