A hermaphrodite dog has undergone surgery to make her female and boost the chances of her finding a new home.  Manchester Dogs’ Home said the condition was putting people off homing Georgie, a stray Staffordshire bull terrier cross.

Manager Lisa Graham said: “Georgie received a lot of interest but when people found out she had both male and female organs they backed away.”  Now Georgie has had her male organs removed they are hoping to re-home her.

    Hi Jasmine
    I started Charlies Parlour because I was concerned about leaving Charlie at the Vet to arrange a cremation for him.
    When I researched the issues of Pet Cremation I was appalled at how Vet driven the Pet disposal Industry is, and how Veterinarians profit from their relationship with the Industry.
    At present, there are only 32 APPCC approved private pet cremation services in UK which guarantee that a pet will be cremated on its own and that 100% of its uncontaminated remains will be terurned to the pet Owner. Almost all pet cremations are arranged by Veterinarians and carried out by the industry which is only regulated to comply with environmental licensing regarding waste disposal not the quality of service provided.
    I put in a search on your site for Pet Cremation, but could find nothing. Pet owners must become more informed if they are not to be continually duped by a profession that is charging (and profiting) them for a service they are not recieving ie: the guarantee that their pet is cremated on its own, alone in the cremator and that all its uncontaminated remains are returned. Every caring pet owner assumes that this is what they are getting when the Vet asks them if they want their ashes backs. The Industry is unregulated and is known to practice “Token Ash” At present it is a situation of “Buyer Beware”
    Surely this is a topic that affects all pet owners and needs to be investigated.

    Kind Regards
