    There's concern for the well being of a ginger pomeranian dog that was taken to a vet in Long Eaton with a serious hernia.

    Ashfield House was told the dog - checked in under the name Frankie and like the one below - had been hit by a car when she was brought last week.

    But an examination found the dog actually had a serious hernia, which is so severe that her intestines were coming out of her body.

    Plans were made to operate but the next day three men collected the dog saying they were taking her to a cheaper vets.

    The veterinary practice where the dog was supposed to be going has not received the dog, prompting the RSPCA to investigate.

    Quote Message: We are very concerned about the dog as she was very poorly and she urgently needs treatment. We don’t know where she is at all, we have made enquiries but we have not been able to find the dog. The poor dog will die if she does not get any treatment." from Sarah Gardner RSPCA Inspector
