Recently we had a serious case of snail bait toxicity when a dog ate a whole 500g pack of a snail bait product. There are a few types of products and all are very toxic and harmful to pets no matter what it is says on the packet.  The most common snail baits attack the nervous system causing uncontrollable seizures, salivation and diarrhoea which can be rapidly fatal. There is also an iron based bait that when eaten by pets causes liver failure and intestinal ulceration that is also commonly fatal. The problem with the iron based bait is it that unless you notice the pet has eaten the bait they may not show clinical signs until it may be too late to save them. There is a very expensive iron absorbing medication that may save a pet but many still don’t survive.

Given the sheer size and weight of a horse, choosing to take your puppy around horses can be an extremely dangerous situation if not handled correctly.

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition of one or more joints. Damage within the joint results in inflammation that causes decreased mobility and pain. As the signs of arthritis can be exacerbated by cold weather, many people start to notice changes in their pets due to arthritis as the weather begins to cool down.
