Free heart consultation checks for dogs! (aiding early detection of heart disease) - David our vet has developed a passionate interest in a broad range of areas including soft tissue surgery and heart scans, and as so many heart conditions go unnoticed he has decided to run free heart consultations until the end of January. New research has changed the way we treat the most common heart condition (mitral valve disease) in dogs. This condition causes a valve in the heart to thicken and as it changes shape a leak develops. There is a long period where from the outside you wouldn’t think anything is wrong but, unfortunately, the leak becomes so bad that heart failure will develop.” Traditionally these dogs would only be treated once they became unwell, showing signs such as coughing, lethargy and exercise intolerance.

I love this time of year with the leaves changing colour, cosy jumpers, tasty coffees and frosty mornings. October and November can be a particularly stressful time for pets with the ever-more ongoing bonfire and Halloween parties - the loud sudden bangs and pops produced by fireworks can reduce many animals to nervous wrecks. The good news is there's lots we can do to prepare them and reduce that anxiety in advance. Signs of stress in cats: Hiding away behind or on top of furniture Trying to run away Soiling or urinating in the house Refusing meals Signs of stress in dogs: Tension in body, tail clamped/between legs Trembling and shaking Whining and/or barking Clinginess Hiding away under or behind furniture Trying to run away Messing in the house Restlessness, unable to settle Panting Refusing meals Signs of an anxious rabbit: Thumping back feet Frozen in fear - motionless Trying to frantically dig / escape What can I do to prepare? Many dogs and cats will try to hide when they hear fireworks - help them by creating a special hiding place where they can feel safe and cope with their ... Canine Arthritis Management - We're delighted to say that we've teamed up with Hannah and Gwen over at Canine Arthritis Management to try to improve the lives of dogs who suffer from this debilitating disease. Rather than focusing on pain killers, we're aiming to offer a more holistic service including advice on nutritional supplements, physiotherapy, weight loss, and easily achievable alterations within the home. Our canine arthritis scheme will run as a fixed monthly fee- this will entitle you to as many consults as you like around arthritis, free follow up blood tests and xrays as well as cost price painkillers and free prescriptions and prescription checks. If your dog suffers from arthritis why not become one of our trailblazers? Drop me a line here on the website and I'll give you a call when we start our clinics. The first 45 minute consult is completely free and places will be limited, so put your name down now! Badly managed arthritis is a leading cause of dogs losing their lives earlier than they should- we owe them something better.
