Kindness .

I have been absent due to many reasons lately , to which I apologise . 

However , one of the reasons is that I’m busy . 

I’ve been going through one hell of a lot with my health and I found I started to spiral with my mental health , so I decided to do something positive . 

If you have read my blogs in the past , you would know I have a charity which I hold close to my heart . 

Many Tears Animal Rescue . 

They have been struggling lately for money due to their food supplier not being able to donate anymore . So all of their money is being stretched out over many things . One major thing being life saving operations . 

They have asked for help on their Facebook page :  https://www.facebook.com/manytearsrescue/

So I have decided to start up a Facebook page of my own , with raffles to help get some pennies for them . 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/395115930823972/

On the page is the go fund me link which I also set up for them 🙂 

https://www.gofundme.com/wp2arwjs-help-many-tears-animal-rescue

Every penny I raise will go to them . 

If you enter the raffles and live in the UK, I will post the prize to you (if you don’t live near) and the money will come out of my own pocket 🙂 

Doing something good has really helped me cope better with what I am going through . 

Since losing Ellie back in 2015 , I have chosen to help this charity because of their amazing work . They do so much for the animals . All staff work on minimum wage and never ask for a penny more . They even put their hard earned cash back in to the rescue to help the animals . Cleaning products etc . 


If you could please take some time to have a look , donate / share either this blog , the links or just the go fund me page . I would be extremely great-full . 


Thank you all so far for your support 💜💜

A little positive from a big negative

Well I did it !! I managed to pull a lovely group of amazing people together & get them to donate dog & cat bits for Many Tears Animal Rescue in Llanelli 😀

I am overwhelmed by how much we have managed to pull together !! Honestly did not expect this 🙂
What was going to be a small hamper , has turned out to be something larger 😀

I am so happy !!

Considering this year started off rubbish , & it’s been getting worse & worse , I can see us ending it on a high with this donation to an amazing cause 🙂
Cannot wait to take this hamper in to them tomorrow .
We also managed to raise £22
which may not seem like much , but it will help them with food / blankets / etc .

I cannot thank everyone enough !!!!

Previcox (Firocoxib) 227mg nearly killed my dog !!

These last few weeks my dog , Ellie , has been up and down . She had a major ear infection which wasn’t fun at all 😦 She got given drops and Previcox .
At first , all was great , her ears were clearing up nicely and she was beginning to get a lot better.
We went back to the vets after 10 days and things were looking up . 


Then after 20 days she went down hill and FAST !!


She had hurt her paw which was causing her some discomfort . The vet thought it was a problem with her nerves . He put her on more Previcox for another 20 days .

Ellie was on them for about 25 days in all (including ear infection) and we had to stop giving them to her .
She was very lame . Not wanting to go out to pee or poo .
She was eating but we had to feed her and water her in her bed or where ever she was lying .
She couldn’t walk straight . Ellie looked liked she had been drinking alcohol heavily and bumped into every wall , fell over hitting her legs and face on the floor . She would walk into doors / door frames and she would hurt herself .
We decided to pull her off the meds as it kept getting worse . To the point it took 2 of us to help her walk !!
It was like her whole body was giving up on her !!

Yet her nose was wet and her eyes were bright . She just couldn’t function .

After being off her meds for a little over 72 hours , she has now FINALLY started to walk alright again . She is eating from her bowl , wanting to go for walks and being herself …. Minus the slight depression . She isn’t as bright today . 

I am furious that we weren’t told about the side effects of this medication .
One gentleman wrote a review about them saying his dog went through everything my Ellie has been . But a lot of people ripped into him for it as they helped their dog etc etc .

The thing is , not every dog is the same . Just like every human-being .
There are side effects to any medication and we should know about it !!
We are told with a child , that if symptoms occur , to go and seek medical advice . Why aren’t we told this with animals ? We did not know that it was the medication at first . If we had kept my Ellie on these meds , she would have died … WITHOUT A DOUBT SHE WOULD HAVE DIED !!

Ellie is 10 in June . She is an older dog , so we do have to be more careful with her . But age shouldn’t matter.

When you get meds as dangerous as these , they should come with a warning . Not just a brown paper envelope with her name on !! 

Please , any dog owner who gets given these meds for their baby. Please please please be careful ! Keep a close eye on them and if they seem off in any way , STOP using them and take them back for different medication .

It’s not fair what my baby has gone through . It’s been a horrible road .
I for sure , will NOT be giving her these meds EVER again .

Sorry this isn’t my usual blog , but I felt it was important to share this horrible experience with everyone .
