We are open for business to see emergencies and to dispense and deliver medication. However, due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we are making some changes and taking addtional steps to ensure that we can continue to stay open for emergencies and delivery of medication for as long as it is safe to do so. Therefore, for the time being , we are closed on Saturdays and will not be seeing any non-emergency patients in the practice at any time. However, please book a video or telephone consultation and if, following this, we think your pet needs to be examined urgently, we will make arrangements to see them in the practice or deliver medications to you. Please see here for the information emails sent to our clients about this situation and do call if you have any queries.
This little bird was brought in yesterday. We have been nursing it and it just today went to the RSPCA to continue its care.
Sadly though some birds raised in captivity will die and some will never be able to be released despite our best efforts.
Please, please, please do not pick up baby birds, many will fall from the nest at this time of year and some will continue to be fed by their mother UNLESS they have the scent of another animal or person. If you see a baby bird on the floor, please leave it alone. We all love animals and it can be really hard to watch a baby bird struggling but leaving it alone and letting do its thing gives them and the wider bird population the best chance of surviving.
