We recently had a very poorly puppy in called Nala, she unfortunately was suffering from Parvovirus which can be deadly for pups like her. Luckily her owners brought her in very quickly, where she had some very intensive treatment and we’re pleased to say made a good recovery 😊 it’s a reminder that these diseases are still about and it’s important to keep your pets vaccinations up to date

BRAVERY AWARD.

A few weeks ago Caspar was sadly suffering from a blocked bladder. This meant he was unable to urinate due to a build-up of urinary crystals, mucous, cells and inflammation that had then blocked his urethra. He had to be hospitalised with emergency, intensive nursing care for 4 days.
We are giving the bravery award to Caspar because throughout all his care he was always very brave and well behaved. He was the best patient we could ask for!

Countryside rules: Enjoy the beautiful countryside responsibly with your dog.

Keep dogs on leads …. Dog walkers are being urged to keep dogs on a lead and under control in the countryside after a series of dog attacks on sheep.

Your dog may be having fun chasing the livestock but it can have massive consequences:
1. Abortions and loss of unborn lambs or calves.
2. Farmers are allowed by law to shoot any dogs that are worrying livestock
3. The dog owner or person responsible for the animal at the time is guilty of an offence under the Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Act 1953 and may be sued for compensation by the farmer.


Bag it – Bin it! ….Dog poo can spread disease to farm animals causing fertility problems and abortions. Please bag it and dispose of it properly in a poo bin or at home.

What to do if you find a
Dog by law dogs must be kept under close control at all times, be microchipped and wearing an ID tag on a collar. You can be fined if they stray and are found to have no ID tag or microchip. Contact your local council dog warden if you find a healthy stray dog. Vets can check the dog for a microchip and contact the owner if the details registered to the microchip are up to date. Contact the RSPCA before taking the dog to the vets if you find an injured or unwell dog.
Cat If it looks healthy and well fed then the chances are it has an owner. Cats often dont wear collars and regularly visit neighbouring gardens/houses so are often thought to be a stray when they do belong to someone. Feeding these cats will just encourage them to return. If the cat is healthy - knock on local doors to see if its from the area or take it to the vets to be scanned for a microchip. If you find an injured or unwell cat call the RSPCA before taking to the vets.
If you think a wild animal/bird needs emergency first aid, they can be taken to the vets but Secret World and the RSPCA have specialist skills and facilities to treat wildlife.
RSPCAs 24hr phone line is 0300 1234 999
Secret World is 01278 783250/07954036687
Baby birds - Leave it alone as their mother will usually be close by. If you are worried you could go back to the area later check if its still alone. If you find a fledgling in immediate danger you can move it a short distance out of harms way. Orphaned/sick/injured or un-feathered baby birds - place in a well ventilated cardboard box and take to your local wildlife rescue.
Deer - If you find a fawn do not touch! This could leave an unfamiliar scent on the fawn and may lead the mother to abandon it. They are often left for long periods alone but are being cared for. If a fawn is sick or injured then call Secret World or the RSPCA.
Hedgehogs - If you see a Hedgehog out during the day, is sick or injured please contact Secret World or the RSPCA.
Fox or badger cubs - Do not handle the cub (they can bite when frightened) unless it is in immediate danger, in which case move it to a safe spot nearby and make an exact note where you found it. If its eyes are open then they are usually fine and the parents will be nearby. You can leave a supply of water and dog food near by and return in 24hrs if concerned. If it is obviously sick or injured then call Secret World or the RSPCA.
