Looking forward to seeing you all this coming Saturday 3rd Dec at our Christmas Open day - the Pet Empawrium, East Kilbride. Loads of fun for all the family, including an amazing Santa's grotto, face painter and lots of pet-related fun! And of course lots of tasty goodies and a free glass or two of probably the most scrumptious mulled wine going down in East Kilbride this Christmas! See you this Saturday 12 til 4. Bring the family, and the dogs....and grannie http://ow.ly/i/prPLw

Interesting article on the BBC reporting the concern of some vets about potential "over vaccination" of dogs when they go for their boosters.
It has been the policy of Champion Vets for a long time to vaccinate only once every four years against the "core" diseases - that is Parvovirus, Distemper and Hepatitis. This is following current data sheet recommendations but ensures dogs are not given vaccines too often. We still vaccinate against Leptospirosis annually due to its short duration of immunity and the seriousness of the disease and of course every dog receives a comprehensive health check annually when they come for their booster. We also tailor each vaccination to the perceived individual risk - our vet may have been doing this even without you realising whilst drawing up the appropriate vaccine!
We now also offer TITRE TESTING for the core diseases. Using a blood test we can tell you whether your dog needs a booster or has adequate protection without it. (Either way we still advise the Lepto part is given annually as we cannot test for this.) Please ask Champion Vets East Kilbride for details - we are happy to advise.

Meet our vet at Champion Vets Paisley - Martin Liddell MRCVS. Martin has worked in a senior role at the PDSA in Glasgow for over 20 years before we were lucky enough to recruit him. Since PDSA vets are generally unable to refer to specialists due to cost, they develop a very high level of medical and surgical skill, because all types of conditions are treated "in house". Martin is an excellent surgeon and this means at Champion Vets Paisley we are able to provide exceptional care for cases requiring either soft tissue or orthopaedic (bones and joints) surgery. This can often be done considerably cheaper than referral and at shorter notice which is particularly relevant in an emergency when suffering is involved. We would be delighted for you to contact us at the Paisley surgery on 0141 889 7638 should you have any questions or would like to make an appointment. http://ow.ly/7ZPp301uDvg

Thought we'd like to share these x-ray pictures with you. These are of "Morse" a beautiful 7 month old kitten who unfortunately had an accident causing a serious and painful fracture of his right foreleg - shown in the first picture. When Morse came to our clinic we referred him to our Paisley vet Martin, who is a highly experienced and gifted surgeon, with over 20 years in the Glasgow PDSA repairing broken bones before he came to Champion Vets. Martin repaired the leg using a complicated set of bars, pins and bolts called an external fixator - seen in the second picture - and at the four week follow-up Morse is doing very well! Martin is a great asset to our team and allows us to expand the range of surgeries we can do without having to refer to specialists which can often cost owners thousands of pounds. Martin is happy to see cases from any of the Champion Vets practices or other practices and offer economical solutions to non-insured cases. http://ow.ly/i/ksyEw
