Anne Elizabeth Walton

Anne Elizabeth Walton 23/05/64– 15/09/21

Anne’s funeral will be held at 12:00 on 14th October in Salisbury Crematorium for those that wish to attend.

Our Salisbury practice will be closed on the 14th but our Marlborough staff will be answering the phone for any queries.

To all our clients at Pet Practice Salisbury and beyond I sadly pen this to inform you of the loss of Anne, an amazing vet and much loved colleague and friend. It’s early days and we don’t have all the facts yet but as loyal clients I know Anne would want you all to have some context as to her sad loss. Anne sustained significant knee damage some weeks ago from a horse injury. After the period of preoperative convalescence Anne underwent extensive reconstructive surgery on her knee a little over a week ago. Her recovery had been going well but sadly, late last week, she passed away in the night to what looks like unexpected complications. This is such devastating news for all of us.

We have placed a book of remembrance for any of her clients who wish to sign it in our reception. Should you be unable to come into the practice but would still like to contribute please email us your words and we can add them for you. We feel it would be a lovely thing to pass onto her family, knowing how highly she was regarded.

Work was everything to Anne and as fellow colleagues we are doing all we can to help her family, friends and animals. Our staff are touched by the support and condolences we have been receiving and we will of course keep you updated as to any arrangements put in place.

Best Wishes to you all at this difficult time.

Ben & the Team.

Peppy's Journey at Pet Practice Salisbury

Peppy, an eight year old Cocker Spaniel cross Jack Russel, was not feeling his usual bouncy self. Over Easter he’d stopped eating, was losing weight and occasionally vomiting

A brief trial with medications did not help Peppy so he was admitted to Pet Practice for further investigations where blood tests were run in the in-house laboratory. His cell and protein counts were high indicating dehydration would need to be corrected with fluid therapy but fortunately all other vital parameters were normal. Intravenous fluids were instigated and Peppy was prepped for further investigations.

Abdominal radiographs were taken as thoughts turned to a possible ingested foreign body. X-rays can highlight a lot of things but some objects are radiolucent, meaning the x-ray beam passes through, hiding their presence. Although Peppy’s radiograph didn’t show an obvious foreign body there were some clues such as the dilated loops of intestines. Peppy was taken to theatre for exploratory abdominal surgery where a large piece of tennis ball was located and removed from a section of small intestine.

Peppy has made a full recovery and is back to his usual lively self. He is however under strict instructions that tennis balls are for chasing not eating!
