Another year has flown by and we're taking the time to look back and say thank you to pets that have really touched our hearts, well done to those that have been really brave and congrats to pets that have made great recoveries.
Christmas is a time for us to reflect on the year behind us and remember those that we've met for the first time and those that we've said goodbye too. Each year we hold a practice meeting and we're asked to think of our best and worst moments from the year. Sometimes this may be the excitement of meeting a families new pet and sometimes we remember a much loved pet that we've lost over the year.
Each year we are lucky enough to meet so many animals that we can't help but fall in love with so at Christmas time, we give them a little something back.
Each staff member is allowed to choose their favourite pet and hand picks a special toy for them, it's a really tough choice and many of us wish we could choose more than one!
Here are some of the photos of staff members giving their toys to their favourite pets, as you can see the animals couldn't get enough of their treats.
Here's Client Care Supervisor Jenni miles' choice Kiki the tiny Chihuahua. Kiki was in being neutered when she received her toy, we thought it would be a cuddly companion whilst she stayed in the kennels.
Dexter the Deer Hound was given his toy by Student Nurse Abi Vaughn, Abi grew very close to him during a long stay with us. Sadly Dexter became unwell at an early age and resulted in a week long stay in the hospital, Abi even let him choose his own toy!
Sarah Carroll the vet, chose handsome Hercules to treat this year. Hercules is well known around the practice and is a very fond swimmer in our Hydrotherapy pool. We think he liked his new toy!
Bentley is a rather lovable boy who loves tummy rubs and cuddles everytime he comes in to the practice, he was quite the superstar performing at the Swan Theatre in Annie this year too so we felt he deserved a little treat.
We have loved taking care of all the wonderful animals we've seen over the last year. It doesn't mean we don't love you if you're not pictured and we'll spoil lots more pets next time around,
Merry Christmas from all of us at Brentknoll Veterinary Centre
