Declan Donnelly has thanked Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick for looking after his poorly dog, Rocky, once again – and pal David Walliams got a cheeky joke in about Dec riding the canine!
Dec posted a picture on Instagram of himself alongside Noel with Rocky all wrapped up in a fluffy blanket.
Beside the snap, he wrote: “Another thank you to this legend and the amazing staff @fitzpatrick_referrals for taking care of Rocky after the silly sausage hurt his back again!
“We never fail to be impressed by the kindness and care shown by all. You’re heroes! D x #dachshund #dachshundsofinstagram #supervet

Fans rushed to comment that they are totally in awe of Professor Noel and the work he does with animals.
“Noel really seems to be one of the most remarkable vets you can find. His good reputation is known even here in Germany (I know him from Channel 4). I’m glad he was able to help Rocky and hope you all are well and happy again! 😍😊 ,” wrote one.
Another added: “Got to love the best vet I think ever.”
But Dec’s colleague on Britain’s Got Talent David Walliams was quick to make a quip about the cause of Rocky’s back problems, commenting:
“Well stop trying to ride around on him then.”
Quick to respond, Dec wrote back: “How else am I supposed to get to the vets brain box?”
These two are hilarious!
It’s not the first time Dec has had to taken his beloved pooch to visit the Supervet, in May 2017 he praised Noel for coming to his rescue.
The Takeaway star shared a pic of him and his Dachshund outside the clinic.
Alongside the snap was a heartfelt thank-you message: “HUGE thanks to Noel and the whole team for fixing our Rocky.
“We are in awe of the amazing and ground-breaking work you do every single day to save and fix our beloved pets.
“We are so happy to have him home. Thank you.”
Noel replied to Dec’s gratitude: “Pleasure to meet Rocky and get him home again. Animals are family.”
