Application Form for Grant
At Sussex Pet Rescue, we appreciate that some owners of companion animals find it hard to cope with the increasing cost of Veterinary treatment.
Although it is a very good idea to take out Insurance for your companion animal, not all medical conditions are covered, especially if the condition is pre-existing. If you are finding it difficult to cover the cost of Veterinary treatment and would like to speak to us about receiving financial help towards the costs then please call Jan on 01403 864742 or Marcia on 01273 551815. We do appreciate that every case and every circumstance is different and for that reason we assess everyone on an individual basis.

Dog disease Alabama Rot discovered in Sussex!

Please note: the dog disease ‘Alabama Rot’ has been recently reported in the area (please see below).
https://www.chichester.co.uk/news/cases-of-alabama-rot-confirmed-in-sussex-1-8332337
As you may know, the cause of the disease is still unknown and it’s caught predominantly during the winter months. This is a very serious issue as the fatality rate upon contracting it is around 80% for dogs. The positive is that it is still very rare but with cases in 2017 over doubling compared to the previous year, dog owners need to be made aware of the precautions, signs and available treatments.
Vet Ashley Gray from Vetsure has recently put together a complete 2018 guide with the latest statistics, aimed at informing the public of the disease. The guide is below (along with a section on Lyme Disease, too) should you wish to view it.

“Dr Les” and Chris delivered a fascinating workshop for Sussex Pet Rescue on Sunday. Dog rescuers, fosterers, board members and our founder, Marcia Harris attended with dogs of all ages and breeds.  The training was very much “hands on” and Les had put together a special home massage routine for Sussex Pet Rescue comprising 13 massage techniques.  The workshop finished with some Canine Pilates stretching the dogs out before their trips home.
AchyPaws is based in Saltdean near Brighton.  This is how they describe their work:
Dr Les Ellam and I use specialised knowledge and training from both canine and human massage skills and experience to detect and target troublesome areas in your dog. This will benefit both function and range of movement of their limbs while easing any associated pain. Regular massage for your dog offers a drug free form of pain relief that can help to prevent recurrence of the conditions that caused the pain, keep your pet in top condition, help to maintain their health and comfort and improve their quality of life.”
