Sadly, Hermes was attacked whilst in his garden and lost three of his feet. Devoted tortoise lover Helen adopted Hermes two years ago from another family.
This week over 6, families and their dogs join him in Cheshire, for a massive celebration of the shared love they have for their dogs.

Noel's challenge is to save as much of the leg as possible to give Orla the chance of a new prosthetic foot, and a future running around with all four limbs.
The risks are high, but Orla's family are prepared to do whatever it takes. Kane is a big part of the family in more ways than one; he's even muscled his way into the marital bed with Cherie, whilst hubby Jason is relegated to the spare room!

Now he's back at the practice after they noticed a problem with his back legs. When scans show the cause is not one, but two bulging discs, it's a crushing blow for Angela and Stuart.
It's a risky operation and the pressure is on Noel; if he succeeds, he will halt the onset of paralysis. If he fails, Blu may be permanently impaired.

He has fractured his knee, but the surgery is tricky as Co-Pee is only 5 months old and hasn't finished growing.
Pauline has lost two other Westies before so she is determined to give him the best chance of healing, which involves keeping Co-Pee calm and preventing him from running about, but with a young Westie pup that's easier said than done.
Both Pauline and the staff at Fitzpatrick's have their work cut out! Noel pushes the boundaries of his lifesaving medicine on a month-old golden retriever.
Olaf helps five-year-old Alice by reducing her anxiety which predisposes her epilepsy, but lameness has made him unable to complete his necessary training for epilepsy detection.

In this episode a wild buzzard with a broken wing throws up new challenges for Noel. The delicate hollow bones in the bird's wing make fixing it with a conventional splint far from straightforward.
It leaves Noel with limited options, as he strives to save the bird's life — and give him back his freedom. Rose's pampered Maine Coon Baros is used to enjoying the finer things in a cat's life.
And when Noel diagnoses slipping knee caps, Rose naturally wants the best for him. But when Baros is admitted for surgery Rose finds parting with her beloved pet harder than she imagined.

Hermes suffered traumatic injuries to his legs when he was attacked by rats in the garden. His two front legs have already been amputated to the elbow and his right back leg has been partially amputated but is severely infected.
His mobility has been completely affected so he needs the help of a tube to feed. Helen wants Hermes to have the chance to walk again and live a full happy life and hopes that Noel can offer all the options available.
Realistically there were only two options — he operates to try and give Hermes three new feet or Hermes is put to sleep.
Helen was determined to do all she could to give Hermes every chance and asked Noel to go ahead with the surgery, knowing that he had very few alternative options.
Before the operation could go ahead, Hermes needed to recover from the infection and went home with Helen to recover.
Tortoises have very slow metabolisms and therefore their recovery time is longer, but finally Hermes returned to Fitzpatrick Referrals to undergo the surgery to give him three new feet, and hopefully, a new lease of life.
They were joined by exotic animal expert, Neil Forbes to ensure Hermes had all necessary and unique support required.
Hermes returned home to recover under the watchful care of his loving mum Helen. She immediately consulted a local exotic vet, knowing in her heart that she may not see him again.
Helen received the heart-breaking news the following morning that Hermes had passed away from internal organ failure during the night.
Noel and the team at Fitzpatrick Referrals were devastated to hear the news of Hermes passing. Helen and her husband Robert laid Hermes to rest in his favourite spot in the garden and will always remember how much of a fighter he was.
