Big Bear Award – Brook

brook, devon rexBrook is a gorgeous Devon Rex cat who is much loved by all of us here at the clinic.  Since 2015 Brook has been in and out of the clinic for investigations of breathing problems and lumps.  Unfortunately back in July, he was diagnosed with dendritic histiocytoma which is a type of low grade skin cancer.

Brook had surgery and we removed a lump from his back leg.  Because there is not much skin in this area the surgical technique is more complicated, meaning Brook needed to have a bandage on his leg which required frequent replacement.  He has been very brave throughout all of his treatment, taking his medication without complaint and he is still friendly and happy when he comes for visits.

One month ago Brook celebrated his 16th Birthday and enjoyed a party, complete with special cake and candles, at home with his family.
