This month's star pet is Sally, a 12 month old Staffordshire Bull Terrier - who elegantly dispells any myths that Staffie's are routinely aggressive; we're more likely to be licked to death by Sally! It's more knees this month, but a different problem in a different species.

This month's star pet is Minnie, a 9 month old, female, black, domestic shorthaired cat who had sustained a fracture to her left hind leg. Minnie is a nervous little creature and is much loved by her owner who brought her into the practice as she had suddenly become lame on her left hind leg and she appeared to be in a lot of pain.

We'll have been open for business for five years on the 6th of March! How time flies!!
To celebrate (what we feel is an achievement….) for the whole of March any dog or cat that comes in for neutering will receive a FREE identichip. Should your pet go missing and is scanned with a reader the unique ID code will allow your pet to be traced to you. ID chipping usually costs £15. So if you have been putting off getting your pet neutered, do it now and get your free identichip. Please contact the surgery for neutering prices and to book your pet in for surgery.

This month's star pet is Michael, a 13 year old Collie cross Whippet. He belongs to one of our veterinary surgeons; he's Will's dog (he's had him since a puppy) and a lot of regular clients may have seen him around the surgery as he comes to work with Will every day. We have decided it's about time Michael featured as the Star Pet!

It's that time of year; the temperature has fallen, along with the leaves, and colder weather is very much with us. Luckily, we can wrap up warm, but it's not so easy for our pets.
Did you know that winter can be particularly tough on cats and dogs? Cold and icy weather can not only be hazardous, it can also make conditions such as arthritis much worse.
With these simple ideas, we hope we can help you make sure your pet is happy and comfortable this winter!

Christmas is nearly upon us…. and tomorrow is the shortest day! This news article follows that of 'Autumn Poisons' published in October. It is a client friendly version of the regular articles produced for veterinary surgeons by the Veterinary Poisons Information Service (VPIS) based at Guy's and St. Thomas' Hospital. We often turn to the poisons professionals at VPIS for advice in cases of poisoning in pets. We hope that you find this article of interest - it concerns sources of poisons commonly reported around Christmas time.
Please remember the information provided below is for your interest only. If you are at all concerned that your pet has had access to any of the substances described then please call the surgery for advice.
