I call Winnie my tiny terror. She is very small and cute but has a huge personality! She is my protector and my best pal. For being only three she has had a lot of health issues and sometimes it seems never-ending. If she just stopped eating things she shouldn't we may spend less time at hospital!

Despite needing follow up treatment, Angus is back to his usual playful self

I took Angus to Vets Now in Glasgow on Thursday the 6th of February after he was attacked by another dog whilst we had him out for a walk. He was bitten on the neck and his wound was so deep that you could see his veins pulsing. We took him to Vets Now straight away and were taken straight to surgery. We spoke to the vet and he said Angus was lucky to be alive and the surgery could be risky. Luckily we got a phone to say his surgery went well
