With the warmer weather and longer days many people take the opportunity to go camping. This can also be a time that dogs love to get out in nature with their owners. In order to make the trip as safe and enjoyable as possible there are a few things to take into consideration before you leave and at the campsite.

Feliway

For some of our patients a trip to the vets can be stressful and this is turn can make the whole exercise difficult for owners too. We are always striving to minimise pet (and owner) stress levels at our clinic. We are excited to announce we are partnering with Ceva Animal Health to use Feliway® and Adaptil® continuously in our clinic to reduce pet stress and make visits as comfortable as possible. Dogs and cats naturally use pheromones as a method of communication. Feliway® and Adaptil® are synthetic pheromones that mimic a pet’s own pheromones they naturally release when feeling safe and calm.

This months blog discusses allergic skin disease and dietary management. While this information is of a general nature, please contact the clinic to discuss the individual recommendations for your pet.

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.
