Story

Meet Zeus, the big friendly giant. Zeus arrived in our care as an unloved stray. Not letting that hold him back, this beautiful boy loves nothing more than a big cuddle and carrying around his teddy. He has stolen everyones hearts at the centre!

Recently, we had to rush Zeus to the vets. Zeus was suffering from bloat, one of the most serious emergencies in dogs that vets face. Whilst rare, bloat is life-threatening and can kill within a few hours if left untreated.

Bloat is extremely painful for dogs. It happens when the stomach fills with gas and twists. It is more common in deep-chested dogs who exercise soon after eating. At HULA, we ensure we give smaller meals more often throughout the day, and always wait for an hour after a dog has eaten before we take them out. When the vet operated on Zeus, they found Zeus' stomach was full of water. It seems that the bloat occurred as Zeus exercised on a stomach full of water.

Luckily, one of our staff noticed Zeus was in pain and knew there was nothing else for it but an emergency trip to the vets. Zeus arrived in time to receive the lifesaving operation.

This operation has left us with a £3,000 bill, which is a huge expense for a charity like ours. Your donation will go towards Zeus' bill, ensuring pets can continue to receive lifesaving treatment.

Since being discharged, Zeus has been wearing one of our HULA jumpers to stop him from chewing his stitches. Normally, dogs wear items specifically designed for them, but we didn't have one big enough, so a staff member gave him their shirt!

Zeus seems to be over his ordeal, but we're keeping a really close eye on him to ensure this doesn't happen again.
