‘Keep dogs on a lead around rivers and ponds’- Vets issue seasonal warning about deadly blue-green algae risks | British Veterinary Association

Hope you and your pups are all managing to stay cool in todays heat. ☀️🥵

I’m sure you are all aware of the dangers of this time of year but please as tempting as it is to let your dogs go for a paddle or swim in the lakes, ponds and rivers please don’t risk it.
Blue green algae can be a killer even in the smallest amounts.

https://www.bva.co.uk/news-and-blog/news-article/keep-dogs-on-a-lead-around-rivers-and-ponds-vets-issue-seasonal-warning-about-deadly-blue-green-algae-risks/

We have issued our annual warning to pet owners to take extra precautions when walking dogs around freshwater bodies, as warm weather conditions spark concerns about an increased risk of toxic blue green algae growth over the coming months.

Summer was in for a extra special pamper this morning ready for her big part as flower girl tomorrow on a very special day. Not all you have to do is stay clean!!

Thank you for being patient with me.

I am back at work but unfortunately due to family bereavement appointments are a bit all over the place and some days I will be working reduced hours. So I may not be able to see you quite as quickly as normal but I will do my best to get you in as soon as possible.

All appointments that are currently booked will go ahead as scheduled unless you hear from me directly.

Those of you which have had appointments cancelled I will be in contact with you in the next day or so to get you rebooked and you will obviously have priority of the first dates.

If you have sent me a message or left a answer phone message please bear with me a little longer i promise I will get you to you as soon as I possibly can.

We are coming in to seed season.

Last few days I’ve seen a increase of seeds of all kinds stuck in coats.
Seeds can cause all sorts of problems for dogs from irritation, matting and tangles, to entering the skin and embedding themselves whic can lead to unwanted trips to the vets and in some cases even surgery to remove.

Keeping paws and coats trimmed and regular brushing are all extra important this time of year after each walk make sure you are checking your dogs through thoroughly paying extra care and attention to between toes, ears - in, under and around, arm pits and groin area’s.

If you need a trim ready for the summer please drop a message or leave a comment

Please make yourselves aware of the adjustments I have had to make to booking and appointment terms.

Unfortunately I have had alot of clients book and not show up for their appointments.
As a small business this is causing me huge, huge losses and is no longer acceptable.

So from now on all future bookings will require a deposit at the time of booking. Appointments will not be confirmed until payment has been received.

First tick of the summer!! 🤢
Urgh they really make my skin crawl.

These nasty little critters can be so easily missed especially if your dog has a long coat.
Please sure your pups are up today with their flea, tick and worming treatments.

There are so many different products on the market but I highly recommended paying that little bit extra and get treatments from your vet and be sure in knowing it will do what is says in the packet and protect your dogs

❌ RAPESEED! ❌
It’s that time of year again where farmers fields have blossomed into pretty yellow flowers, these plants are called rapeseed. Although it may be tempting to place your dog in the mist to take a scenic photo, please avoid this at all costs!
Rapeseed is extremely poisonous for dogs, especially in highly sensitive canines.
Rapeseed is listed by Dogs Trust as toxic to our dogs if ingested and can cause symptoms such as:
❌Haemolytic Anaemia
❌ Blindness
❌ Damaged Nervous System
❌ Digestive Disorders
❌ Breathing Problems
Even walking through these fields should be avoided!

Please seek immediate veterinary attention if your dog shows any signs of rapeseed poisoning.

This evening after a rather soggy walk it was Reefs turn for a puppy intro.
She’d had a bath at home but this was first time she’s been done properly at work.
Considering she see’s all your pups in there all day every day she wasn’t impressed when it she had to go in. 🙈
She jumped straight in her bed and sulked 😂

But for now her white bits are white again, her spaniel ears are all floofed and I think she’s just about forgiven me 🥰

11/03/2022

Afternoon all, I have a lot of people message me asking what the nice prices will be and could they have a price list.
Which is fine and I completely understand you want to know who much future grooms will be.

Because every dog differs so much in size, coat thickness, coat conditionc, even siblings can be completely different to each other and everyone works to different schedules I don’t have a set piece list which is why I’ve tried to work out an average percent to try and make things a little simpler.

Most of my clients were currently at around £38 so with the price increase it will work out at £42

I’ve tried to keep the prices as low as possible it’s really not some thing I wanted to have to do and looking back at some of my older clients records it’s the first price increase in two years.

If you think of it this way a large Costa coffee is around £3.80 (other coffee shops are available) so my prices have increased by a large cuppa coffee hopefully that doesn’t seem quite as bad as put that way as “a 12% increase”. 😂

So far everyone I have spoken to has been supportive and understanding. I hope that continues.
I really don’t want to lose any of my doggy friends or my lovely clients but I have to be able to pay the bills.

So day one at Crufts and the Working and Pastrol winners are in.

Siberian Husky
And the
Border Collie

For those who want a big of fun I will run a competition and there will be a little prize at the end of it.

WHO WILL TAKE THE TROPHY HOME FOR CRUFTS 2022?! 🐾 🏆

Any entry’s placed after 5pm on Sunday won’t count so make sure you get you answer in by then.
If no one gets it right names will be put in a dog bowl and one drawn at random.

I’m going first obviously it’s going to be the English Springer Spaniel 😝😂

If more than one person gets it right, again names will go in a dog bowl.
(My guess doesn’t count)

Get your predictions in and good luck!

Here’s a little video of Reef watching the heel work to music on tonight’s crufts show. She was fascinated by it!

To all clients who pay via bank transfer.

ALL payments are required to be made in full before the dog/s leave the premises.

I really don’t enjoy having to keep chasing people requesting payment and I shouldn’t have to be waiting days/weeks for a response.
And I really don’t enjoy having to make posts like this.

Thank you for taking the time to read.
Enjoy your weekend
