Dinas Vets has welcomed their 2000th customer - Effie the Syrian hamster was bought in by her worried owner a Dinas local, Amy Walker. Effie has recently had babies, and was suffering from a life -threatening prolapse.
Emily Ward- Smith MRCVS Practice Principal, said “although the staff and I were delighted to welcome our 2000th customer, we had to act quickly to save Effies life. We anesthetised Effie and carried out surgery to repair the problem”. Effie then recovered from her operation cared for by our dedicated team of experienced nurses, and was quickly back with her owner. Whilst Effie is doing well, her dedicated owner Amy is battling to save her babies’ lives.
Amy said today ‘We are so grateful to Dinas Vets who have saved Amy’s life. We particularly appreciated that she was seen quickly today and rushed in for her surgery, without which she would have died. People might say ‘She’s only a Hamster’, but she is precious to us and a big part of our lives’.
Dinas Vets will be celebrating this landmark by presenting Ms Walton with a bottle of Champagne and a free supply of Royal Canin food for her dog Lucy.
Dinas Vets is a successful Welsh Business which opened 19 months ago, employing 8 local staff and 2 vets.
