dave cumber vets – winter 2017

The first snow of the year (albeit a bit sleety here in Dorset), really makes it feel like Christmas is coming.  There’s always so much to do and not nearly enough time, but if you have a minute, take a look at our “12 days of Christmas” – a potted guide to what to watch out for with your pet as the festivities get into full swing!  It’s all too easy for your pet to get a bit forgotten in the hurly burly which surrounds the holidays, but our quick guide will help to jog your memory about the possible dangers.

We really hope that your pet stays happy and healthy over Christmas, but should you need us, we are only a phone call away, 24 hours a day, every day.  Click here for a full list of our surgery opening times over the holidays.

We are again supporting the Scout Christmas Post which is excellent value at a suggested donation of 25p per card with all donations going to Scout funds.  You will find their post boxes in many locations in Dorchester & the surrounding villages including our Dorchester surgery in Mellstock Road.  Last collection before Christmas is 12 noon on 19th December.

we are planning to organise some more tours of our great new Weymouth surgery but if you missed out on our surgery tours at the open day, why not take a virtual tour of our Link Park surgery.  Click here for a behind the scenes look at what we have to offer.

Wednesday Morning closures – from now on we are closing every Wednesday from 9am to 10am for staff training.  Please have a look at the news item to see how this may affect you and your pet.  We will of course still be available for emergencies.

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.

Finally all the team at Dave cumber Vets would like to wish you and your pets a very Happy & Healthy Christmas!
