Ruby is a Yorkie who had a scratch on her eye that developed an infection and ulcer that needed an emergency corneal graft. Mike Rhodes agreed to do the operation at very short notice and out of hours at Banbury surgery. The kindness Mike showed to us at an extremely upsetting time will not be forgotten. Ruby was close to losing her eye and we would like to thank Mike for saving her sight, after her check up today 2 weeks after the operation we are happy that Mike is very pleased with the graft and Ruby’s recovery. May I add Ruby does not let anyone near her face but on her check up today she allowed Mike to do a full examination! I would also like to say thank you to Serena who looked after Ruby and who called me personally to check on Ruby’s progress. I would recommend Mike as he is very professional and caring. He did a great job of calming us down at a stressful time and reassuring us he would do his best for Ruby and look after her. Thank you very much.
