Why you can trust Sky News

Cats and dogs will soon be united in a battle against a mass outbreak of fleas.

The recent Europe-wide heatwave that gripped the UK, followed by a period of heavy rain and flooding, is said to have created an ideal breeding ground for the insects, which could have pets up and down the country scratching at their fur with extreme vigour within the next few weeks.

Other possible symptoms include hair loss, spots and redness, with humans also a potential target for bites.

According to the boss of retailer Pets At Home, the tiny creatures will begin to make their presence felt among our furry friends well before the end of the month.

Chief executive Peter Pritchard said: “In about three weeks’ time, we will see a mass outbreak of fleas.”

The RSPCA says that pets can be hypersensitive to flea saliva and suffer an allergic reaction, while younger and frail animals could become weak or even die as a result of blood loss.

Pets that are infected should also be treated for worms, as flea larvae can become infected with tapeworm eggs.

Dogs in hot cars

A reminder to all dog lovers. Please do not leave your pets in cars. It takes just a few minutes for a car to turn into an oven! The best choice is to leave your pets at home in a cool room. If you are taking them for a walk do it as early as possible to avoid the midday heat.
 
If you have any questions or emergencies please contact our team on 0127 22193 or 01252 837154

Ticks are here!

Ticks are here!

With everything flourishing, so is the tick population. We have had an unusual number of concerned owners of both dogs and cats asking us about ticks on their beloved pets.

Due to relatively mild winter this year’s tick population is much worse than previous years.

A tick can cause localised reactions (even after they are removed or let go), they can cause noticeable discomfort to animals especially if attached on face or ears, and they can carry diseases – Lymes disease.

Best way to avoid this is prevention. There are several very effective treatments for both dogs and cats. For advice in the best one for your pet ask one of our nurses for advice.

If you want to try and remove a tick, make sure you use an appropriate too – a hook. Do not try to pull it off as it may leave part of the tick embedded.

If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to call 0127622193 or 01252837154 and our nurses will be very happy to help.

February is our senior pet month

With advances in veterinary medicine our pets are enjoying longer lives. Sometimes this means an increased incidence of age-related conditions. This should not stop them from enjoying a good quality of life in their golden years. However, it could mean a need for some changes to be made. It’s  not always “just getting old”

 

Please take advantage of our FREE nurse checks if your pet is over 10 years old, during month of February. Call one of our surgeries and our friendly nurses will make an appointment to have your pet checked.

What You’re Saying

I was very happy with the care my cats received…the vet gave me a great deal of time and treated my girls like his own. I also received a lot of help from the head nurse who gave me a diet plan to follow which has helped them lose weight. They are now a lot healthier and much more active.
