March is our dental month

Dental problems are the most common health problem of our pets! About 3/4 of middle-aged and senior dogs and cats are affected. However, it is often overlooked and poorly understood.

Common signs of dental problems in cats and dogs are:
• Smelly breath
• Salivating
• Pain when the mouth is touched

• Inflamed/red gums
• Rubbing or pawing at the mouth

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.

How to help your pets which are scared of fireworks

Fireworks season is around the corner. This can be fun for humans, but more than 40% of pets in UK have a degree of phobia of fireworks!
There are a lot of simple steps we can take to prevent anxiety and help our pets. But you have to think ahead and prepare for firework nights. Please do not hesitate to ask our staff for advice and here are a few useful tips:

Tips to help your dog:

1. Make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise earlier in the day.
2. Keep your dogs inside during fireworks, preferably with human companionship. Bringing your dogs to a fireworks display is never a good idea.
3. Provide a safe place inside for your dogs to retreat. When scared of sounds they can’t orient, dogs often prefer small enclosed areas. If your dog is comfortable in a crate, that is a good option.
4. If possible, keep the windows and curtains closed. Covering the crate or lowering the blinds can also be helpful. Removing visual stimulation can also help calm dogs.
5. Make sure all your dogs are micro-chipped and chips registered to your current address and phone number.
6. Leave your dog something fun to do – like a frozen Kong filled with his favourite treats.
7. Put on soft music in the background (classical music is a good idea)
8. Using supplements like Zylkine, Calm food and Adaptil can be very useful if used in appropriately and together with other modifications

Tips to help your cat:

1. Provide hiding places in your home
2. Cats can become more stressed if they’re outside during fireworks
3. Microchip your cats in case they’re startled and escape outside
4. Using supplements like Zylkine, Calm food and Feliway can be very useful if used in appropriately and together with other modifications

Tips to help your rabbits and guinea pigs

1. Partly cover outside cages and pens with blankets so an area is soundproofed and hidden, but allow another area for the animals to look out
2. Provide bedding small animals can burrow in
3. Consider bringing them indoors – this will need to be done gradually so plan ahead

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.
