Lido’s operation a huge success thanks to all of the donations and his excellent care

Submitted by Steve on 10:33, 21st Sep, 2018 | 0

We are pleased to report the Lido the silver long haired main coon went for his life saving operation on Monday and is recovering well despite a much larger growth than expected.

The operation took place at Isabelle Vets who kindly undertook the surgery at a huge discount and thanks to the many amazing donations the £1500 was raised.

The surgery had to be much more extensive than first thought and with much of Lido’s right ear canal missing he is sadly now deaf on one side but without the operation his life was at great risk.

At the GSPCA our current Commercial Dryer has sadly, after more than 20 years passed over to laundry heaven as parts are no longer available to maintain the old girl.

We have been shopping around and to replace the machine and fitting will cost £3,500 and the GSPCA are appealing for help.
