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.
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!
