Dora - Tough on the outside

Look at that face! You would have no clue she’s been in hospital for 48 hours having diarrhoea!

Beautiful Dora proves how much animals can act and look completely fine even when they aren’t! This is based on their natural instincts that kick in, telling them they don’t want to seem weak. 

This gorgeous girl has had a bad case of gastro and believe us when we say this, it’s been bad.. As humans when we have gastro you feel exhausted all the time, painful, not wanting to move and whenever you eat, it never comes out the way you want it to. It’s not pleasant to say the least. Now, don’t get us a wrong Dora’s owner explained that on top of the diarrhoea, she hasn’t been herself. A lot of the time we think because animals having that happy face and wagging tail that they are okay. Next time your animal has diarrhoea, vomiting or anything else concerning but they still act fine, ask yourself; how would I feel? Now think they 100% feel how you would feel too but they are just better at hiding it than us humans! 

Sneaky we know! We know you all would never want your pets in any discomfort so whenever you have any worries feel free to speak over the phone to any of our qualified nurses!
