Our cats, dogs and rabbits are an important part of the family and vaccinating them regularly is an easy way to help them remain happy and healthy throughout their lives.
Lots of us have busy lives though, so we've changed our reminder system to make it easier to stay on top of routine appointments.
We now send reminders one of three ways - email, text and postcard, depending on which contact details we hold for you.
If you would especially prefer an e-mail or text message, please get in touch and update your details.
One of our clients ran the London Marathon this year to raise money for the Dogs Trust. 26.2 miles is a long way and we're all impressed by her dedication!
She has a page for donations at www.virginmoneygiving.com if you would like to support her.
More News and Advice
Dog owners in the UK are being warned about an outbreak of an animal disease that is carried by ticks. It is the first time that experts have established an outbreak of babesiosis in the country.
In Essex, two dogs have died and three others needed blood transfusions after contracting the disease. Experts say that it will be impossible to stop the spread of the disease, which is caused by a single-celled parasite.
The ticks carrying the Babesia canis parasite have been found in fields in Harlow, Essex. The local council has put up a sign with a map defining the area and advising dog walkers not to enter.
Speak to us about the best form of tick protection for your dog.
We are pleased to announce that we can now accept Vet Vouchers
Vet Vouchers are gift vouchers that can be redeemed in registered practices such as ours.
They can be used towards annual routine healthcare, an outstanding vet bill or even an insurance excess charge.
They make brilliant presents for caring pet owners, helping to lessen the stress that unforeseen vet bills can sometimes bring or just freeing up a little bit of extra money to be used for pet treats or something special.
