A sad case of poisoning has been brought to our attention via a veterinary practice in Hemel Hempstead – unfortunately Dexter the Cockerpoo died as a result of eating mouldy food from his owner’s recycling bin. We would like to assure our clients that this is an unusual incident, however please do be aware that dogs (particularly those prone to scavenging) will not distinguish between fresh and mouldy food, and may try to eat things we don’t want them to. If you do have a food recycling bin, please ensure that it is kept out of the way of your pets, emptied regularly and cleaned thoroughly to avoid mould building up. If your pet does get hold of mouldy food, or anything they shouldn’t have, please phone us straight away for advice. In some instances we may need to administer medication or induce vomiting.
Saturday 1st October:
We are looking for a new home for our stray kitten, Marie. She is approximately 4 months old, very playful and good natured. Marie will need to have a full course of vaccinations, which comprises two vaccinations 3 weeks apart. She will also be neutered before she leaves us. If you are interested in adopting Marie please call us on 01204 525066.
Tuesday 6th September:
We have a stray rabbit with us at the surgery at the moment, who was handed in just before the weekend. She was found in the Heaton area of Bolton. She does have a microchip but unfortunately it has not been registered, so we are unable to contact her owners. If you recognise bunny or have any information please get in touch with us on 01204 525066
Saturday 6th February:
Did you know that the law around microchipping is changing on 8th April 2016? All puppies and dogs must be microchipped by 8 weeks of age. However it doesn’t just apply to puppies, the law change applies to all dogs. So if your dog, regardless of age, isn’t microchipped, you have another 2 months to get this done. We don’t recommend leaving it until the last minute, so we are running an offer until the end of February to have any pet microchipped for just £15. Please phone us on 01204 525066 or check out our Facebook page here for details on how to take us up on this offer.

Hello, My name is Stripy and I need a new home!
Stripy is 1 of 5 kittens, unfortunately her 4 litter mates have passed away and little Stripy had a severe flea infestation to the point of her being anaemic! Her owner had used supermarket flea preparations (most of which repel fleas not kill them!). Stripy has been signed over to us and has been treated for her flea and is doing much better!
