Pet Trip Advisor ...

Reduced mobility, reduced activity, changes in grooming habits, changes in temperament? No, not you - your cat! The symptoms could be a sign that your cat is suffering from arthritis. If you think your cat is in pain please get in touch with us. See more at Free Treatment Offer

The pet passport rules they are a changing!

Your cat may well need an examination, but we will then give a week's treatment with a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug free.

From 1 January 2012 it will no longer be necessary to have a Rabies vaccination followed by a blood sample 3 weeks later to check that it has worked and then wait 6 months before you can bring your pet back into the country. Next year it will simply be a Rabies vaccination and a wait of 3 weeks - for more information see here. However, there are issues to consider before taking your pet abroad, as there are a number of diseases in Continental Europe that are not present here. Prevention is better than cure!

DANGER Cats and especially kittens and tinsel don't mix

So please discuss prevention with us before you go!

This Christmas be sure to read:

'Death by Chocolate'

Visit our web site for all the latest information and

Dark chocolate sales continue to increase as Brits follow the example of Mayan and other South American communities in enjoying the anti-oxidant filled cocoa derived product. BUT only 100g of dark chocolate can be lethal for a dog the size of a springer spaniel. So keep the high percentage of cocoa solid chocolate for yourselves and make sure your dog is protected. It would take 4kg of Roses/Quality Street or 1kg of milk chocolate to have the same effect - but don't risk the inevitable tummy upset...
