Insurance company buys cancer treatment for Chelsea the Woodland horse
NEW medical equipment has been bought for a 34-year-old horse with cancer after a donation from a pet insurance company.
Petplan has given £500 to the Ark on the Edge animal sanctuary in Woodland, County Durham, to buy a new tracheotomy tube for critically ill horse Chelsea.
Chelsea first arrived at the charity 18 years ago with pregnancy complications, but with care and support from Ark on the Edge, she made a great recovery and later gave birth to a foal.
Now 34, Chelsea’s cancer diagnosis required treatment in the form of a new tracheotomy tube to boost her quality of life.
Pat Kingsnorth from Ark on the Edge said: “It was a fantastic surprise to win Petplan’s cheque this month.
“The money means so much to the charity as we are really struggling for donations at the moment.
"As well as helping Chelsea, the money will go towards other veterinary bills in response to the many animals we’ve seen recently who have unfortunately required medical treatment.”
Isabella Von Mesterhazy, head of marketing at Petplan said: “We work with more than 1,700 animal charities and understand the challenges they face.”
