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.
Barney, who is normally a very happy dog full of beans, came in to see us as an urgent appointment after he all of a sudden developed very nasty bloody diarrhoea and had started vomiting.
Barney is a small dog and bloody diarrhoea in any dog but especially young and small breeds can become very serious very quickly and the dehydration that results can be life threatening. However, with prompt and appropriate treatment they normally recover just like Barney!
