"I was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, on a farm just outside of town. I moved to Scotland at the age of four and settled in very nicely. I love the park across the road, which I ran and played with my ball everyday. Unfortunately, one morning I ran across the road to get to my mum and was hit by a car. I was rushed to an emergency vet in Glasgow who patched me up but couldn't do anymore and advised my family that I would lose my leg.

My family called Clyde Vets who said to bring me straight in. I know my family were really worried when they were told that I had to be left there for the day. After x-rays, scans and investigations my family returned and we were all amazed that my leg wasn't broken however, I had sustained severe injuries. There was still a strong possibility that I would lose my leg.

Everyday my family took me to the vets to get my bandage changed and leg cleaned where I would get gravy bones, cuddles, attention and a beautiful unique cast. Such as a flower, bumble bee, Canadian and Scottish flag to mention but a few. My family also put me on a high protein diet of eggs, chicken, steak, and rice. Clyde Vets were excellent at giving my family daily step by step instructions which they followed religiously such as, putting a plastic bag on my injured leg to keep it dry at all times when going outside. I wasn't allowed to go for walks, or play with my beloved ball. After a few weeks Clyde Vets advised my family that things were looking good as long as we kept up with their advice and appointments. They found a unique way of showing my family my progress by sending photographs via WhatsApp due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. This encouraged us all to keep going with their advice. I know it was a struggle at times but I am now on the mend and I am able to go for walks and get to play with my ball ON ALL FOUR LEGS once again all thanks to the staff at Clyde Vets. I would highly recommend them and wouldn’t allow my family to take me anywhere else because of their kindness, perseverance, and excellent service from all the staff."
