AT Home with Lorraine Kelly - June 2011 - (Page 434)

PROMOTION ✴ PETS Just A note… Thank you very much for my birthday card. It was so very kind and thoughtful of you. I’m so excited at the prospect of becoming a teenager this month and I’ve been promised an extra-long walk and even more cuddles than usual, which I’m not sure is possible, though my family can try! I’ve also attached a photo of me taken last June when my daddy took me on a nice long walk across Ilkley Moor in Yorkshire. I still had some vision then and climbed up this big rock and felt like the Lion King. I just want to take this opportunity to say how grateful I am to all of you at Medivet Stanmore and at Hendon too for taking such wonderful care of me throughout my very happy doggy life. When I’m taken into Stanmore, the trip isn’t complete unless I can make a beeline for the front door of Medivet to say ‘Hi’ to everyone, and of course I always hope to see a pussycat, too. It wasn’t an easy time last year, developing diabetes in April and then going suddenly blind in July, which was quite scary. Then you found a specialist surgeon who amazingly restored my sight in August. This has given me every opportunity to enjoy life to the full again. We’ve had a couple of other bumpy times in the autumn but, thanks to you wonderful guys, here I am in 2011 full of beans (not literally) and so happy and content. I do have a new problem now though, so I might have to see my friends at Medivet Stanmore very soon to treat my ‘overwaggytailitus’ although I’ve been told to live with it. Once again, thank you all very much for caring for me. I love you all soooo soooo much! Kiko poses to have his photo taken on Ilkley Moor Woof, woof! Kiko Your pet is a family member, deserving the same quality of care you’d expect for the rest of your family Kiko – if they feel that will be more beneficial for your pet. Medivet can assist you in making some of the most important decisions you could ever make for your pet. They want to ensure that you are given all the options available to you without second-guessing the type of treatment or levels of care you feel best suit your needs. To Medivet, your pet is a family member, deserving the same quality of care you would expect for the rest of your family. They encourage you to discuss any aspect of your pet’s care – no matter how trivial you think they may be. Medivet wants to be there for you – and your pet! For full details of their Client and Patient Charters, visit the website Kiko was brought in to the Stanmore surgery by his worried owners when he started bumping into things at home. Vet Kayleigh knew Kiko well. She first diagnosed him with diabetes and had seen him regularly, including once when she’d looked after Kiko herself while his owners were on holiday. Kiko’s owners’ fears were realised – he had developed cataracts as a result of the diabetes and was going blind. He was referred to a specialist vet service, and they performed surgery on him. It was a long recovery for Kiko but now he’s a much healthier, happier dog. He even dictated a letter to his trusty human friends (above). MEdIvET’s ChaRTER COMMITMENTs Medivet’s Client Charter sets out their commitment to the standards of service they aim to provide to their clients. The Patient Charter echoes this by aiming to ensure that Medivet gives your pet not only the highest standard of veterinary care but also the kindness and attention you’d expect if they were treating their own pets. This means your pet’s physical, emotional and welfare needs are of crucial importance to them. Since pets are Medivet’s passion, pet welfare and care are their main objective. They are so committed to putting your pet first that they will also refer you to a specialist or another veterinarian – as with JUNE 2011 | 41
