ALICE - FOSTER HOME NEEDED
**** PLEASE READ ALL BEFORE FALLING IN LOVE WITH A PHOTO AND APPLYING ****
We are looking for an extremely kind person with lots of time on their hands and MUST be LOCAL to us to take on (administer) the continued treatment of ALICE for us - details below. You will need to be able to get to our vets either in Blackmore, Billericay or Writtle. INITALLY this is on a FOSTER HOME basis but with view to adopt.
A bit about her - Alice is a 6 year old Cocker Spaniel with the sweetest temperament and nature. She absolutely adores cuddles and affection, travels well, is house trained, walks well on the lead and is pet friendly but she needs to be the ONLY pet in the home for now. We would prefer a child free home whilst she is on medication. She really does not deserve to be stuck in kennels. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.
The reason we require a foster home for Alice is:-
* She needs bathing 3 times a week to help with her skin condition (special shampoo supplied)- it is now getting too cold for this to be practical here - we are heated but not 24/7.
* She needs medication is her ear twice a day BUT there are 2 different medications which need administering 1 hour apart from each other e.g. 8.30am and 9.30am and then 5.30pm and 6.30pm (supplied - these are not the exact times just an example of what would be entailed)
* Antibiotics to be given twice a day to help with skin and ear (supplied)
Obviously we will supply food and anything else she needs to make her comfortable.
Alice loves her walks so someone at the foster home needs to be able to take her out for a walk. We are ideally looking for someone who is home and not out at work all day.
If you think you could help Alice on the road to recovery for us then please could you complete the application form in the first instance and we can go from there. Should the treatment fail - worst case scenario is an operation to remove her inner ear which we definitely will not be undertaking in a kennel environment so it is vital that we get Alice in to the correct foster home.
