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!

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.
