Did you know that dental disease is slow to develop, so many pets adjust their eating habits to cope with discomfort? ๐Ÿ˜ฟ Your pet could be suffering from dental pain in silence. Only when the disease is severe, along with chronic pain, receding gums and tooth loss, might they let you know that theyโ€™re in pain. At least 80% of cats and dogs will suffer some form of dental disease before the age of three. Talk to us about prevention. ๐Ÿฆท

Thankfully, we do not see some diseases as commonly in the UK anymore because, as responsible pet owners, weโ€™re great at vaccinating our pets. ๐Ÿ’‰ However, theyโ€™re still out there, so any unvaccinated dog is still potentially at risk. โš  Do you have any queries about vaccinating your pet?

Have you ever noticed green or brown blooms on the surface of water bodies? ๐Ÿค” You might have been looking at blue-green algae.

These organisms are not algae, but a particular type of bacteria called cyanobacteria. Many of them are toxic to our pets, and this means dog owners need to be aware if local bodies of water have blooms before going out for a countryside walk โš 

Any lake, pond or river that has water that doesnโ€™t move a lot is prone to having these bacteria, and they are a common mainstay during the warmer months. If a pet drinks from contaminated water or licks the coat after a swim and ingests these, it might cause vomiting, drooling, disorientation and seizures. If untreated, it may cause liver failure and even death.

There is no antidote for blue-green algae toxin, so if you suspect your pet is intoxicated, contact us immediately.

Did you know there are approximately 12 million dogs in the UK? Since 2016, it has been the law that all dogs in England, Scotland and Wales must be microchipped. Having your pet microchipped is great but always make sure that your details are always updated after a house move or telephone number change. When did you last update your dog's microchip details?
