A PDSA spokesperson told the Mirror : "We are aware of the extremely sad case this weekend involving the puppy and extend our deepest sympathies to the owner. We want to reassure everyone that if any pet owner rings or attends one of our Pet Hospitals or a Vets Now emergency clinicâ€”or indeed any vetâ€”with a pet in need of emergency care, they will always be offered to be seen and provided with emergency treatment."
"With the limited information we have for this particular case, we have checked all of our call logs and spoken to the vet team members on duty over the weekend. As far as we are currently able to tell, the correct processes for all those who contacted us over the weekend were followed."
