We helped Bailey just in time. Help us help more pets like her.

When Bailey came to our Inchicore clinic we could see she wasn’t well. Our vet found she had a sore and swollen tummy.

An ultrasound scan revealed why. Bailey had a pyometra, an infection of the womb. This was a potentially fatal medical emergency, and we had to act fast. We brought Bailey into surgery to remove her ovaries and womb, saving her life in the process.

Bailey recovered well from her ordeal, helped with a course of antibiotics and painkillers for a week after the surgery. She had stitches in her tummy for ten days to help her heal. During this time, her pet parents looked after her, spoiling her with kindness and keeping her comfortable.

Bailey survived her infection and recovered, thanks to the quick intervention of the Irish Blue Cross. Luckily for Bailey, we were there.

Our emergency surgery saved Bailey’s life. This is a vital part of what we do.

Pets like Bailey Need our help. So we need yours. Thank you!

Our veterinary teams are amazing. Thanks to them, we could share countless success stories just like Bailey’s. Next year is our 75th anniversary, a major milestone for the charity, and an opportunity to celebrate this wonderful work.

What keeps us going is knowing that we’re helping pets who need our low-cost care. We help owners who might not otherwise be able to afford veterinary care for their beloved pets.

We rely on our many supporters to help us continue this work. This year, as well as delivering care through our clinics we were able to extensively refurbish the veterinary facilities at our Inchicore Clinic. The new facilities will bring a major boost to our patient care in 2020 and beyond.

Your wonderful ongoing support is vital. Your belief, and your donations, mean that our charity can keep doing what it does best. Whatever the challenges ahead, our priority remains to help as many pets as possible. Please support us again this Christmas to help patients like Bailey and make 2020 an even better year for pets in need!

Yours sincerely,

Christina Conneely
Chief Executive Officer
