Practice News

Parvo is a common & potentially serious viral disease in dogs. The virus is officially known as parvovirus. The virus is transmitted through the mouth or nose from faeces. Signs usually consist of depression, severe vomiting, refusal of food and water, abdominal pain and profuse smelly, bloody diarrhoea. This can result in rapid and severe dehydration and ultimately death.

There is no specific treatment for canine Parvovirus, so it is important to ensure that your dog is fully vaccinated in both puppyhood and adult life.

Virus Warning!

Please be aware we have had a confirmed case of parvovirus in this area. It is known to last in the environment for up to two years. This disease can be prevented easily with a simple yearly vaccination! Ask at reception for more details.

Autumn Alarm!

Autumn is upon us and as the weather cools down bees and wasps become dozy and are easily caught by dogs and cats, but can still give a nasty sting! Fleas are also an ever present problem, so please remember to still guard against these pests!

Remember Remember the 5th of November!

Bonfire night is nearly here and can pose a problem for many pet owners. Barking, hiding, shaking, panting, refusing to eat or drink are all behavioral signs of stress. However there are ways in which you can help your pet feel more relaxed around this time of year including:

  • Pheromone diffusers e.g. DAP for Dogs and Feliway for Cats
  • Prescribed medication

  • For any advice about helping your animal please ask at reception.
