This month we're starting our #MakingaDifference campaign, to show how we can make a difference to charities, and in turn how they make a difference to the animals that they look after.
To begin, we're chatting about PDSA - Saving Pets, Changing Lives. We've helped PDSA with a series of three £10,000 grants between 2012 and 2019. The first was for its Plymouth facility, while the second and third support the new Manchester Pet Wellbeing Centre, which replaces an old animal hospital. Find out more about this on our website - and see how you can also help to Make a Difference!

We have worked with Petplan to provide our adoptive families with 4 weeks of free Petplan Insurance for years!! Petplan has been awarding animal charities for seven years, and nominations are open now for the eighth year.
There are three categories; Animal Charity Team of the year, Animal Charity Employee of the Year, and Animal Charity Volunteer of the year!
We have had an incredibly busy year rescuing & rehoming hundreds of domestic animals, rescuing & rehabbing thousands of wild animals as well as caring for an array of farm animals!
We would be very grateful if you, as a supporter of our small independent charity, would take a few minutes to nominate us, a member of our team, or even one of our many wonderful volunteers for this amazing award!
You can do this by following the link below:

My wonderful friend @shellysmitdressage shared this earlier in the week so I thought I’d give it a go! I varied it slightly with 4x bounce canter Poles one side, 3x 1 stride canter Poles the other side and 2x poles across the diagonal. I also added in some blocks at the corners before and after the diagonal poles to ensure we weren’t cutting them!
We started in walk with 3x steps between the bounce poles and 6x steps between the stride poles, before moving into trot with 2x steps between the bounce poles and 4x steps between the stride poles. I find this a really good test into how well I’ve spaced the poles as these should fit in perfectly 👌🏼 We then moved up to canter before working on shallow loops with the 3x 1 stride poles and going across the diagonal poles in canter.
Don’t panic, I didn’t forget to also do this with no stirrups 🤪😉 it was ruddy tough but my gosh did we both work hard 💪🏼
This exercise is great for:

ИСКУССТВЕННЫЙ ИНТЕЛЛЕКТ ОБНАРУЖИТ БОЛЬ⠀
Собаки породы кавалер-кинг-чарльз-спаниель предрасположены к Киари-подобному пороку развития (мальформации Киари) – заболеванию, которое вызывает деформацию черепа, шейных позвонков и в крайних случаях приводит к повреждению спинного мозга, называемому сирингомиелией (SM). В то время как SM легко диагностировать, боль, связанную с мальформацией Киари, подтвердить трудно.⠀
Новая методика на базе искусственного интеллекта (ИИ), разработанная Университетом Суррея, поможет ветеринарам определить у собак это заболевание. При разработке были определены изменения облика, связанные с аномалиями Киари.⠀
Тот же метод идентифицирует биомаркеры, которые дают возможность дальнейших исследований лицевых изменений у собак, страдающих от Киари-подобных пороков развития.⠀
В Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine исследователи из Центра зрения, речевой и сигнальной обработки (Surrey’s Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP)) Суррея и Школы ветеринарной медицины (SVM) рассказывают, как они использовали полностью автоматизированный метод картирования изображений для обнаружения паттернов в данных МРТ.⠀
Исследование помогло выявить различия в изображениях МРТ собак с клиническими признаками боли, связанной с мальформацией Киари, животных с сирингомиелией и здоровых собак. ИИ идентифицировал дно третьего желудочка и окружающую нервную ткань, а также область рядом с клиновидной костью как биомаркеры боли, связанной с мальформацией Киари. Для сирингомиелии как биомаркеры определены пресфеноид и область между мягким нёбом и языком.⠀
Дальнейшие исследования показали, что у собак с болью, связанной с сирингомиелией, были более выражены брахицефальные особенности с редукцией мягких тканей носовой полости и чётко выраженным переходом от лба к морде.⠀
Оба исследования были профинансированы Фондом памяти Ханны Хасти. Исследование ИИ также было поддержано благотворительным фондом Pet Plan.⠀

Hey Everyone – I am so so sad to share that 3 pups today in our community are in need of our help. These 3 dogs have a chance to live, but they need funding to pay for treatment. Can you please help us spread the word? Dogs in the US that can’t be funded could face euthanasia – just heartbreaking.
In our book series, we are trying to help spread the word about how important pet insurance is from day one on bringing a pup into one’s life due to preexisting condition clauses. If you don’t have #petinsurance , please get it ASAP. In the meantime, so many pups need help to live and we will do our best to help spread the word. 🚨🚨🚨 on our highlight bar will have GoFundMe linked funding campaigns.
If you know 1) organizations who can help our #pawrents fund their pups treatments and/or 2) accounts willing to help us spread the word about our pups in need, please let me know! We can create a viral #petwork to help our pups have the fighting chance that they deserve.
On Halloween a few years ago, Dusty gave his pet parents a real scare when he swallowed a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser® cleaning sponge — no chewing, just swallowed it whole!
After six hours in the emergency clinic and three sets of X-rays, the eraser was just sitting in the bottom of his stomach. Several of the vets at the clinic and poison control concurred that the only option was to do emergency surgery to remove the sponge.
Dusty spent three days in intensive care before his vet cleared him to go home. Dusty’s Fright Night trick had his pet parents sick with fear, but he made a full recovery — and the following Halloween was trick-free and full of treats thanks to a $1,592 reimbursement from Petplan.
To all our Instagram friends and family- our little baby bear is very unwell and in with the veterinary specialists as I post this. His pain has come on suddenly and what was originally thought to be upset tummy has now been suspected to be meningitis (which is reported to be a high risk for certain breeds including Bernese- due to their genes). We are ensuring everything that can be done will be done but it’s a very stressful and sleepless time for us all and we hope for positive results with his treatment. A huge thank you 🙏 to the vets and nurses who are making sure Kahuna is taken care of and gets lots of cuddles. More posts to follow when we have information to share... #kahunasjourney#berneselove#bernesepuppy#bernersennenpuppy#bernese#bernersennen#puppy#dogmeningitis#puppymeningitis#petplanprotected#petplan
