A healthy smile

Many dogs show signs of gum disease by the time they’re four years old because they aren’t provided with proper mouth care.

Doggie breath

Did you know that “doggie breath” is not normal? Bad breath may be a sign of serious internal problems. Bad breath is often the first noticeable symptom of dental disease. If you need advice, please speak to one of our team who will be happy to help.

No chocolate treats

Chocolate contains a substance known as theobromine which can kill dogs or at the very least make them violently ill.

One small biscuit

If you give your dog one small biscuit it is the same as you eating a hamburger! A healthy diet for your pet is crucial for a long and healthy life. For more information on healthy diets for your dog please speak to one of our Vets.

Protect against fleas

Fleas can live in your home several months without food - just waiting to jump onto their next victim! One female flea can lay as many as 10,000 eggs. Fleas not only cause discomfort by biting but they can transmit disease like tapeworm and one bite can cause severe allergic problems.

The sooner the better

Kidney disease is one of the most common diseases we see in cats. Most cats do not show any signs of the disease until 75% of their kidneys have been damaged. Regular annual health checks are crucial for picking up on the early stages of poor health – book an appointment today.

Worms the length of a bus

Some intestinal worms can grow to as long as 5 metres (the length of a bus)! Be sure to give your pets worming tablets regularly.
