Little Piglet urgently needs our help!

Teckels is asking for help with funding a lifesaving operation for Piglet the French bulldog.

Piglet arrived at Teckels two weeks ago with a breathing problem, and it quickly became apparent she needed veterinary help. She has just had an operation to widen her nostrils and some minor surgery to her throat, but she sadly has stage 2 Laryngeal collapse. This will require her to be referred to a specialist centre and could cost up to £3000.

I'd like to help

Pet insurance


Why do I need pet insurance?

One in three pets may require unexpected veterinary treatment each year (source: Petplan). While advances in veterinary medicine mean vets can do more for your pet, treatment costs can soon mount up. At Teckels we believe that pet insurance is an important part of responsible pet ownership, allowing owners to go ahead with veterinary treatment at the earliest opportunity knowing that help is there for the unexpected costs.

Which type of policy should I choose?

It is important to be aware that not all pet insurance is the same. Some policies limit the amount of time or money that you can claim for. Don't just shop around on price alone because the cheapest deal may not provide the right cover and may cost you more in the long term.

Which pet insurance does Teckels recommend?

At Teckels we recommend Petplan insurance for the following reasons:

CANCELLED EVENT - Howl-o-ween dog parade - Thursday 25th October - The lovely volunteer who has organised this event has desperately been trying to find an alternative location for this event due to the report of Parvovirus at Robinswood Country Park.

Unfortunately it has not been possible to find a new venue at such short notice therefore the organiser has decided to cancel this event.

If you are aware of a suitable venue and have a contact at the venue then please email us at and let us know. We would love to keep this event as the money is so vital to our cats and dogs!
