Pet of the Month - Timmy

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Congratulations to Timmy, our first hamster to win Pet of the Month! Timmy is an exceptionally cute 7-month-old Syrian hamster nominated by his adoring owner Tori Mounsey after he had an abscess removed at Highcroft under general anaesthetic. This was followed by several visits for check-ups and after care and Tori says “In particular I’d like to thank exotic species vet, Jemma Young, for her excellent handling of Timmy. It is so good to know there are exotics vets there to help”

Tori continues, “Timmy is on three different medications and gets cleaned up twice a day, but he is such a good boy and just puts up with it! I am amazed.  If I was him I would have nipped but I can safely say when people ask me 'Does he bite?' the answer is "No, he's super friendly!'"

As you can see Timmy is also super handsome. Well done Timmy!
