Chelsea & Bandit's story.

Meet Chelsea & Bandit, two valuable members of our team here at All Creatures Great & Small. Both horses are currently a worry for us, as they silently suffer with Cushings disease, a dysfunction of the pituitary gland.

Due to a rotated pedal bone and a rotation of the hoof, Bandit requires frequent visits from the farrier, while Chelsea is dependent on antibiotics and anti inflammatories daily. 

Vet fees alone over the past two months have cost the sanctuary over £1,000! But we believe they are worth every penny.

Could you extend a helping hand to our ponies?

Please help us!

Our equine veterinary bill for September is shown to the left. This amount is a large cost to us, but as we pride ourselves on our high standard of care for our animals, large vet bills like these are regular occurrence.
