May is proving to be an action packed month. Who would have thought that last month’s article on adder bites would generate so much interest in the press. Following the flurry of interest from local and regional media we have now been contacted again by the BBC as they have received a report from a vet in the New Forest where they had 4 dogs bitten by adders in one day and also had a fatality. Take a look at our original news item on the danger of adders and our 15 minutes of fame!
We have been working very hard on improving the veterinary experience for our cat patients and it is now official – we are a Gold Standard Cat Friendly practice! You can see just how this affects you and your cat by reading all about it in our news item.
We are delighted to be sponsoring 2 different pet related awards in the next few months. Last year we sponsored the Animal & Rural award in Wessex FM’s Local Hero Awards which was won by Hayley’s Hedgehogs. This year the category has been changed to just the Animal Award and you have the chance to nominate a person or an animal that you feel has gone above and beyond or overcome a particularly difficult situation. We are sure there must be some very worthy candidates out there, so click here to read more about it and nominate your Animal Hero. Nominations close on Sunday 4th June.
The second award we are sponsoring is in Dorset magazine’s annual Food Drink and Farming awards where entries close on 30th June for your favourite, Dorset, dog-friendly establishment. Check out our news item for details.
