Our caring Medivet duo has put their spare time to good use by volunteering to help Carmarthen’s animals in need.
The rescue takes in and rehomes ex-breeding dogs, some on ‘death row’ in pounds and others whose owners are no longer able to keep them. It does not have funds for a full-time vet so welcomes occasional veterinary volunteers.
During the day, Ciara and Ceri notched up 4 spays, 8 castrations, 2 pregnancy scans and treated several sick animals.
Ciara said: “As a Regional Director, I don’t do surgery as often as I used to so thought a volunteer day with MTAR would be a great way to support its work while helping me to refresh my skills.
"Ceri and I really enjoyed the day and were impressed at MTAR’s efficiency and organisation. The dogs they receive are often in a terrible state but you can tell that they are used to coping with a heavy work load and the MTAR team provides fantastic care to these long-suffering animals.
“It was great to be back at the operating table and to help so many animals in need. We hope to do it again before too long.”
