Firstly I'd like to thank Karlin for her valuable advice which has influenced my decision to cut all ties with the previously mentioned veterinary surgeon

As a result Holly's surgery will not be preformed at christmas as hoped but i am hoping we will be able to secure an appointment at easter time when I have two weeks off

In the meantime I am going to continue taking Holly to hydrotherapy once a week to build up/maintain her muscles..

Thanks again for all of your support
