I am a springer spaniel who is in love with life – too much I am told.
I came into the world full of fun – always in bother and often called a pain in the neck -still am!!
Was taken to my local vet at 18 months old as I had a lump in my neck – well I did love chewing bushes.

The lump was removed and that was supposed to be that !! – the lump went for testing -when it came back I was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer – null cell.

My owners were very upset – they had lost my big best friend Barney the previously year at 13yrs to cancer – couldn’t believe it could happen again in such a short time and with such a young dog…..

Why are we called Hawk and Dove?

The hawk and dove represent the two most important aspects we need to consider when providing veterinary cancer treatment.

The Hawk represents the need for a watchful and aggressive treatment directed at the pet’s tumour or cancer. The Dove represents the compassionate approach needed to ensure that the treatment recommended is the best option for the pet and its family.

Our belief is that through balancing these two aspects we will achieve the best quality of life possible, whilst also trying to give owners as long as possible with their beloved pet.
