John & Vivien Boon – Duke

This is Duke, our 7 year old German Shepherd. A few months ago Duke became very ill. He had contracted a Clostridial infection which was rapidly destroying tissue and muscle around the top of his leg. Our local Vet was unable to deal with the condition and Duke was referred to an animal hospital. Following extensive surgery (twice) Duke was left with open wounds for several days while the vets went away to a conference!! Eventually, after further delays, we were informed that Duke had now contracted MRSA. Our account by this point was standing at approximately £5500. The animal hospital discharged Duke into our and our local Vet’s care. At this point I started to look on the web for information about MRSA in dogs. I was delighted to discover the Bella Moss Foundation as we needed help and reassurance at this time. As soon as I contacted Jill we had a lot of help and support and whilst I deeply regret that ANY pet should contract MRSA, it was a comfort and a help to know that we were not the only ones going tthrough this trauma. Happily Duke has made a full recovery. Unfortunately our bank balance has not!!!
