WE ARE NOW OPEN FULL HOURS FOR ALL PATIENTS AND ARE INVITING PEOPLE INTO THE PRACTICE ONCE AGAIN. As of the 24th July 2020, we have been welcoming a limited number of clients into the practice. Video consults are still available for those who wish to reduce their contact with others or who are self isolating. For the safety of all people who enter the practice, we have installed perspex screens in certain areas. We are only allowing a maximum of 2 households (2 people per household max.) into the premises at any one time. Please be aware that only one person may be able to accompany a pet into the consultation room itself (the other person may need to wait in reception). We are also asking that all visitors and clients wear a mask at all times when in the practice. There are exceptions for those who may struggle with these measures and please do call if you have any concerns. Please see here for the information emails sent to our clients about this situation.
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.
