Can you help cover the cost of Barney the Labrador's vet bills?
9:00am Friday 13th June 2014 in News
AN animal charity is appealing for help covering the cost of caring for Barney, a year-old chocolate Labrador who is recovering from surgery after arriving at K9 Crusaders covered in “lumps and bumps.”
At first volunteers at the Bissoe-based charity thought Barney may be riddled with tumours to add to a skin condition, sore eyes and a fracture which left him lame.
They thought his outlook was “bleak” but an operation found that the cause of the lumps was a sinus tract infection.
A spokesman for the charity said: “The vet removed the massive infection from his head and spent over two hours stitching up the wound. Barney will need further veterinary treatment but the outlook is now a lot more positive for him.
"However, the cost of the vet's bills to treat his many on-going issues, are estimated to be in excess of £1,000."
