Clinics & Classes!

Our new nurse, Sarah Towler, is settling in and will now be running a number of clinics alongside the vets.  These will include weight checks, continuation of vaccination courses, post-op checks, dressing changes, behavioural and nutritional advice, blood sampling and blood pressure checks.

Sarah has a particular interest in pet behaviour and will be holding puppy classes at the surgery on a Friday evening.  The sessions are aimed at puppies up to 4 months old, as this is the most beneficial time to start training.  The courses will run for 4 weeks and will cover basic training, successful training methods and "taking charge" as well as socialisation techniques and avoiding problem behaviour!  The classes are tailored to suit the needs of each group and will include the teaching of "nose-to-tail" checks and healthcare relating to the breeds in each class.  We are sure that experienced and first-time owners will find the sessions useful.  Well behaved children are also welcome.  

Be sure to book your place when you come in for your puppy's vaccination!

Lungworm update for dog owners


Some clients have approached us with questions about lungworm after seeing the recent advertising campaign on TV. We would like to assure everyone that the only cases we have seen in this area have been contracted when the dogs have traveled south. 
Therefore, if you travel further south with your dog and/or your dog tends to eat grass, your animal could become infected.
You can check the area you are travelling to onwww.lungworm.co.uk/map. Of course, Cumbria could become affected in the future.
A monthly dose of milbemycin (Milprazon is the tablet we use) will protect your dog and prevent the disease developing. Please speak to us for advise if you are worried about how these parasites may affect your pet.
