dave cumber vets – september 2016

September is here, the children are back at school and we are getting ever nearer to moving to our brand new surgery in Link Park.  Several clients have asked why we need to move and so Dave has made a short video to explain.

The builders are getting on well with the fit out and it is really beginning to take shape.  There have been  few delays but the flooring should be going in any minute now and then the specialist wall coverings.  We hope to be able to give our staff a guided tour soon but  it’s still all hard hats and work boots on site!

We will be keeping you constantly updated about our move here in our news section and on our facebook page.

In these summer months we and our pets all tend to be out and about more.  Or maybe you are dave cumbers dog margot
going on holiday and your pet is going to the kennels or cattery.  We have 2 very useful articles which are relevant to this time of year which you may find helpful – pets on holiday and first aid for your pets.  Please remember that summer does have its potential problems – adder bites, ticks and of course grass seeds getting where they shouldn’t!  Make sure you check your pet regularly and if you are concerned then just give us a call at either our Weymouth or Dorchester surgery.  The other thing to remember especially with the recent hot weather is the danger of pets over heating.  It is important to make sure that caged birds and small furries are not placed in full sun and obviously dogs should NEVER be left in cars in this weather.  One thing we saw recently which might not be immediately obvious was a dog wearing the sort of cone-shaped muzzle that stops it opening its mouth properly.  Dogs cool down by panting and if the mouth is stopped from opening properly they cannot pant effectively so please do not take your dog out in the hot weather wearing that type of muzzle.

Just to remind you that we are now well past the deadline for micro-chipping your dog, so please, if you haven’t acted yet you need to.  You can read all about the changes in our news item.  We are extending our £10 offer for micro-chipping for a few more weeks so just ring our Weymouth or Dorchester surgery to make an appointment
