FIREWORK PHOBIC PET?

The fireworks seem to have already started, and you can be sure they will be appearing randomly from now until the new year. Treating a noise phobic pet is a long term job, with the quieter parts of the year used to desensitise them to the problem using routines and sound therapy and trailing remedies to find the one that best suits your pet. Many anti-anxiety treatments are best started well in advance, so give us a call to see how we can help today!

Cardiology Campaign

During October and November we are running a cardiology campaign, to raise awareness of the recently published EPIC study, which showed that dogs with mitral valve disease benefitted massively from receiving medication BEFORE the external signs of heart disease were evident, if evidence of heart enlargement was detected.

Mitral valve disease particularly affects Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and similar breeds of dog, and is common beyond the age of 6. If you have a Cavalier or other small dog and would like to attend the practice for a FREE consultation with a vet to check their heart, please ring the surgery to book an appointment. If a heart murmur is detected, we are offering reduced price assessment to detect enlargement of the heart. If this is detected then this hugely beneficial medication can then be given to your dog.
