In Guernsey a case of Strangles has recently been identified and the GSPCA are asking all equine owners to take care to ensure their animals are kept safe and well.

Strangles is a commonly diagnosed infectious disease that affects all equidae worldwide.  Caused by the bacterium Streptococcus equi.  

The disease is highly contagious and is spread by direct or indirect contact. It can affect any age, sex or breed of horse and remains a widely feared disease because of its debilitating effects and its potential economic impact on equestrian businesses.

After the BIGGEST ever GSPCA event on Easter Sunday a call came into our GSPCA emergency line not for what you would expect such as an Easter bunny but instead for a Christmas turkey.

A stray turkey had been spotted in St Martins and GSPCA Ambulance Warden had to rescue the bird while many around Guernsey enjoyed their Easter Eggs.

The bird is doing very well at the GSPCA and we are currently appealing for the owner to come forward.
