Honey hits the headlines!


Everyone who works at Millennium Vets already knows how special Honey, our lovable Dogue de Bordeaux, is!  She has been through so much since she came to us paralysed in April last year.  But she has made tremendous progress in her recovery and in March this year we started to search for a permanent home for Honey. We still need that special someone who can provide the care she needs. But why is Honey hitting the headlines?!  Bayer have chosen Honey to lead their  'Be Lungworm Aware' campaign ...

Honey was paralysed from the neck down as a result of lungworm.   Since she arrived at our Practice in April 2015, she has undergone months of round-the-clock care and has been coming on leaps and bounds thanks to our dedicated staff. Although still wobbly on her back legs, she is now able to move around independently and is finally ready to find a new permanent home to live. 

This week, Bayer are supporting Honey’s search for a forever home. You can share their posts to help us spread awareness, click here.

If you think you could be the new owner for Honey, please take the time to visit the links below - archive news and photo albums from this website.  If you still think you can offer Honey a home, then please contact us by email: admin@millenniumvets.co.uk.

We would like to thank Bayer for providing Honey with parasite treatment and food over the many months.  They have also committed to funding these costs until a new home has been found and will pay her physiotherapy costs for the first year in her new home - to assist her new owners in her recovery.  
As the leader in UK lungworm awareness, Bayer wanted to help Honey after hearing she had been diagnosed with lungworm.   She is now doing her bit in highlighting the need for treatment against lungworm, through Bayers Its a jungle out there campaign!

We would also like to thank staff at The Dogs Body, Canine Hydrotherapy (in Earls Colne, Colchester), for their support with the many months of hydrotherapy.
