Bullseye was taken into charity care on Tuesday 14th February along with his field companion, Lasso, who sadly, had to be put to sleep on Friday.
Unfortunately, the decision was made with the vets on Saturday to also have Bullseye put to sleep. Although Bullseye was wormed and had begun his treatment, he began to deteriorate and became very weak.
More bloods were taken from Bullseye and tested, with the aim of producing an urgent treatment plan for him. From the results, he was given an antibiotic injection and plasma transfusion. Sadly, during the plasma transfusion, Bullseye struggled to stand and his body was just too weak to cope.
The team at our Animal Reception Centre (ARC) along with our Vet Nurse, worked tirelessly to try and give him the best possible chance, but sadly, the odds were against him.
Thank you to everyone for their support, it is only with your help that we can be here for horses like Bullseye and Lasso.
