Goodbye Freda

Freda was brought to us last month severely emaciated. At some point in her life she had broken a front leg which had fused itself back together but not quite right. This may have been the start of her decline as she wouldn’t have been able to forage correctly, though she could now walk successfully.


As she was unwell, the parasites she’d contracted from eating inappropriate foodstuffs (slugs and snails) were a large burden to bear. Though through her treatment for this, it’s been a steep uphill battle to get her to eat and she’s been losing weight steadily passing some blood too. Occasionally we had success but not enough to make sufficient difference.

Unfortunately last night she haemorrhaged heavily leaving us no option but to put her to sleep.

Sorry, Freda, that we were unable to help.

Rest in peace.
