  • March's Pet of the Month
    March's Pet of the Month


    March's Pet of the Month Award goes to Toby a 5 year old Pug cross Jack Russel Terrier.

    Toby has been a patient of the practice since March 2015 when his owners adopted Toby from Dog Watch Rescue.

    Last year Toby had an appointment with the practice to have his throat examined under a general anaesthetic as a swelling has appeared.  A biospy was taken and examined by an external laboratory, with no action needing to be taken at this point.  A couple of months later Toby was back, this time to have a dental procedure with Dr Haseler.  A larger swelling was identified extending from his incisors to his tonsils.

    Mr Haseler carried out a further biopsy of this area and advised further tests as the area was suspicious.  Unfortunately for Toby the swelling turned out to be cancerous.  Toby was referred from ourselves to an Oncologist at Willows Veterinary Hospital.  Toby started a course of chemotherapy treatment at Willows with regular check ups and blood tests with us to monitor his progress.

    Toby has now finished his chemotherapy treatment and we are pleased to say he is doing well.

    Toby still comes into the practice for health checks and blood tests to monitor his parameters and to check on his progress.

    We are all so pleased for Toby and his owners that he is doing well.

    Well done Toby for being so brave throughout all your treatment!

  • Spring Poisons
    Spring Poisons

    ‘Spring Poisons’Chocolate

    • Chocolate: contains a stimulant called theobromine (a bit like caffeine) that is poisonous to dogs.
    • Raisins: don’t forget that treats such as hot-cross buns contain raisins.
    • Spring flowers: daffodils can be toxic, most often after ingestion of the bulb but occasionally after ingestion of flower heads and can cause vomiting, diarrhoea and lethargy.  In severe cases may result in dehydration, tremors and convulsions.
    • Ivy: dogs that eat ivy (Hedera helix) commonly develop salivation, vomiting or diarrhoea.
    • Bluebells: all parts of the plant are poisonous to dogs.Daffodil
    • Adder bites: the European adder is the only venomous snake seen in the UK. Adults are around 50-60cm long and are characterised by having a black/brown zigzag pattern along their back and V shaped marking on the back of their head.
    • Toad toxicity: we see occasional cases of exposure to toads in the summer months when the toads are spawning.

    Slug and snail pellets: the toxic compound is metaldehyde (note – not all slug pellets contain metaldehyde).  Only small amounts of pellets are needed to cause significant poisoning
