PoppyThe observant among you will remember Poppy as having appeared on this page last November.

A sweet and easy going Labrador Poppy has really been through the mill yet again. Some weeks ago she became depressed and reluctant to jump in the car although she continued to eat and drink and did not vomit as was the case last year.

Investigation showed free abdominal fluid which when analysed indicated septic peritonitis. Peritonitis is an inflammation of the membrane which lines the inside of the abdomen and all of the internal organs and is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition.

An exploratory operation showed Poppy had a kebab stick lodged in her liver! This was promptly removed and we are delighted to report that she is making an excellent recovery to date.
