 The White Cross Vets Three Peaks Challenge

In August, a vets and pets team of eight humans and two canine walkers completed the Three Peaks Challenge in aid of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and the MS Society.

Five team members from White Cross Vets, Guiseley (veterinary surgeons James, Vanessa and Rod, plus veterinary nurses Amanda and Holly) were joined by Cate, veterinary surgeon at White Cross Vets, Redcar, plus Lenka (Rod's wife) and Dave (Amanda's husband). Also present were James' and Vanessa's border terrier, Pip who enthusiastically tested the depths of the boggy bits, of which there were many, and Holly's large and amiable cross breed, Buddy who provided some much needed uphill traction at strategic moments! All completed the route in under 12 hours, which is especially pleasing as not everyone is a regular hill walker.

Looking after school pets

We regularly visit schools, community groups and churches to talk to children and students about caring for their pets. This is White Cross Veterinary Nurse, Hayley, with her pet Lurcher, Mackenna, who she rescued as a puppy.

Hayley is one of our team who explains to students how to look after pets properly and identify any potential problems. “The children absolutely love the sessions and there are always plenty of questions. We provide all of the children with a certificate, stickers and a colouring book and it’s always a very worthwhile and informative event.”

We also offer free pet care for school pets during the summer, so that the parents and teachers who look after them can be reassured they will receive the best treatment if they become unwell.
