We just love his baffled expression! Does your cat follows you into the bathroom too?

Osteoarthritis is a painful and progressive disease involving joint inflammation, cartilage destruction and eventually bone changes. This is a common debilitating and progressive problem, with 8 to 20% of dogs suffering from it. This disease develops in a joint due to congenital (present at birth) or acquired abnormalities (e.g. traumatic damage) which lead to abnormal forces on the cartilage and start a vicious cycle of disease.
Osteoarthritis can affect one or more joints and since it is a painful disease dogs often become lame, reluctant to exercise and to get up, especially during the colder months. You may also notice your dog is sore when touched, yelping or whimpering in pain and even acting aggressively. This condition can result in a reduced quality of life and prevent dogs from fully participating in everyday activities such as walking, running and swimming. It is not uncommon for owners to attribute these subtle changes to old age.
Osteoarthritis is irreversible and requires lifelong management. Treatment focuses on minimizing pain and discomfort and much can be done to control the associated pain, slow the disease progression and improve the dog’s quality of life. Despite the unavoidable progression of this condition, the majority of dogs are able to have a good or excellent quality of life with appropriate management!

Don't neuter your dogs too early, them their bones and joints mature first.

Just like me! Can't get out of bed when it's cold outside 😘

Worse when you get up and your dogs stay put or steal the warm bit you where just in 😫 lol 😂

The foxes are active in my area at the moment and with two dogs, getting out of bed is about 2 am. 😀

Myxomatosis is a serious disease that is endemic to the wild rabbit population in the UK, and it is caused by a very contagious virus that can easily find itself in your bunnies. It can be transmitted by blood-sucking insects, such as fleas and mosquitoes as well as by contacting with infected rabbits or their bowls/beddings.
Sick rabbits may become lethargic and will develop characteristic swellings around the eyes, face, ears, lips and genital area. Unfortunately, it’s usually fatal!
Good news: There is a vaccine that protects your bunnies and there are also several other ways to make sure insects aren’t bothering your pets.
Not sure if your rabbits are adequately protected? Give us a call and schedule an appointment with us!

It’s tempting to want to give the gift of pet ownership to a loved one but springing this as a surprise to someone is usually not the best idea.
Pets are not gifts, they require many years of commitment and will be our stalwart companions long after the new puppy or kitty shine wears off and the Christmas high is no longer there. To be the owner of a pet is a big responsibility! All prospective owners should be aware that it’s not something to be taken lightly.
Consider carefully before offering a pet to a loved one or a child, perhaps its best they are involved in the decision making and everything has been discussed beforehand.
A boom of unwanted animals being carted off to pounds and sanctuaries always happens after the holiday season, so we would like to take this time to remind that while acquiring a pet during Christmas isn’t bad in and of itself, giving one thinking it will require the same responsibility as a new gadget is half way to a big problem.
Be responsible, make sure everyone understands what a pet entails and then make your decision.
