|Staffie Dumped With Grapefruit Sized Tumour|
Kassie now receiving care at Putney Animal Hospital
The RSPCA is seeking more information about a dog found with a tumour the size of a grapefruit. The 11-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier was picked up as a stray on 25 July in the Oakridge Road area of Bromley, south-east London.
Initially cared for by Lewisham Council, the dog has now been transferred to the care of the RSPCA Putney Animal Hospital. Kassie is set to undergo further tests and x-rays to establish more information regarding the tumour.
A microchip revealed the animal’s name to be Kassie, but the other details were no longer valid.
RSPCA inspector Anthony Pulfer said: “How long Kassie has been living with this tumour we just don’t know, but clearly her owner(s) should have taken her to a vet for treatment.
“While the tumour looks awful, vets have said she is not in discomfort as it moves, so she is able to walk, sit and lay down on her side.”
“In the meantime, I would appeal to anyone who may recognise her, or know who owns her, to get in touch,” said inspector Pulfer.
Anyone with any information can telephone 0300 123 8018 and leave a message for inspector Pulfer.
