Hammy's Appeal - Sir Hamish McTavish Intensive Care Intern
We have an opportunity to make a huge difference to the care the our furry friends in memory of our dearly loved Hamish.
Hamish was cared for by his highly skilled and caring specialist, Dr Scott, and his colleagues at the University of Edinburgh Hospital for Small Animals. This is a world renowned facility where specialist care is given to some very poorly pets with complex health needs. Without this facility it is unlikely that Hamish would have been able to live the happy fulfilled life that he did.
As well as providing direct care to these most vulnerable pups, the Hospital for Small Animals is part of the prestigious School of Veterinary Studies and this is where veterinary students from around the world complete their training before returning to their home countries to practice.
Throughout Hamish's time under the care of Dr Scott and the Hospital for Small Animals we, his family and friends, were grateful for the skill, compassion, care and expertise of the Hospital staff. We often commented that every pup should have a "Dr Scott"!
The Intensive Care Unit of the Hospital is a first class facility which provides expert one to one specialist care for pets and provides an intensive training opportunity for its students. It is limited only by the number of specialist staff available to provide this level of care.
The University of Edinburgh has allowed us to partner with them to undertake what for us is a major fundraising appeal to fund the creation of the post of Intensive Care Veterinary Intern which will introduce a full time vet working exclusively within the Intensive Care Unit under the mentorship of the Hospital specialists and who will also provide support and training to the students in the unit. In honour of Sir Hamish and his fundraising activities this post would be the Sir Hamish McTavish Intensive Care Intern - a living memorial to a wonderful little guy!!!
