Carlos (my daughter's Shar Pei) was taken ill one night whilst I was looking after him, I wasn't too worried but decided to ring the vet anyway. On examination she said it could be bloat (or GDV) which can be potentially fatal. He didn't seem too bad at the time but things rapidly went downhill and he needed emergency surgery as an xray showed his stomach was twisted.
Prince Bishop's were wonderful even calling in a vet who was actually on holiday to perform the surgery. Thankfully Carlos survived the surgery but it was still touch and go for a while.
He's now fully recovered and I'll be eternally grateful to the vet's at Prince Bishop's for saving his life. If they hadn't acted so quickly he wouldn't have survived.

hello, i was at prince bishops last week with a poorly one week old shih tzu pup, the vet explained that she thought the pup had colic through taking in air while suckling from her mum,. she gave me some good advice on what to do to keep her bowles open & some medicine to get rid of the gasses inside her abdomen, i beleive without the vets help, the puppy would not be here today, although the vets bill had to be paid, it was nothing to the price of losing a pedigree pup, the pup is now a thriving 2 week old& seems no worse for her colic. thank you prince bishops vets
