The importance of microchipping!! This handsome fellow is Diesel. He was handed in as he was found wandering down the road with no visible owner. Jo checked for a microchip and he was registered to an address in Canvey Island, Essex! Jo phoned the telephone number that was registered with with the microchip data base and discovered his owner was working here in Norfolk. He came to the surgery straight away and picked Diesel up.

Ronnie spent a further month in the fantastic care of his family before the difficult decision was made to put him to sleep. Ronnie was the gentlest of dogs and the mark he and his family left at Swaffham will not be forgotten. We all send our..
This is the adorable Little Man. We saw him as an emergency at 3.45 am towards the end of July. He had been involved in a road traffic accident and was suffering from severe shock and bruising. Following hospitalisation and further diagnostic tests it was discovered that Little Man had a ruptured bladder. Lisa performed a Laparotomy and she repaired a small tear along his bladder wall. He was hospitalised for observation to ensure he was able to pass urine. Little Man made a full recovery and we are happy to say he is back to his normal self. We have chosen Little Man to be Septembers Courageous..
