Despite the very summery start, October at last seems to be turning autumnal!  Our garden is still full of flowers that should have faded a month ago and there are still outdoor tomatoes ripening on the plant - not for much longer I suspect as the days get shorter and the nights colder.

Autumn can be a lovely time of year but it brings with it a couple of potential hazards.  Firstly, as you are out and about you will probably have noticed all the wild funghi that appear as the weather becomes damper.  These unfortunately can be extremely dangerous so have a read of our news item about them and if you have any concerns get in touch sooner rather than later.

The other hazard at this time of year is the approach of firework night.  November 5th is approaching fast and many pets do not enjoy it at all.  The secret is to be prepared in good time.  Our staff at the Dorchester and Weymouth surgeries are on hand to give you lots of good advice on how to keep your pet safe and minimise any distress and we have re-run our firework article written by Ruth which is very helpful.  Our leaflet on firework phobia products will also give you an idea of what products are available. The message is to get sorted in plenty of time and your pet will thank you for it.

We have loads going on at the surgery at the moment.  We are especially pleased to launch our new Puppy Packages.  We have developed these to run alongside our pet health club.  They are a great way to make sure your puppy gets the best start you can give them and with 3 levels to choose from they represent great value as well.  Check out the details via the pet health club link.

You may have noticed that we have had no new monthly articles for the past couple of months. This is because Ruth who writes them is having some time off for family reasons. We hope we will be able to restart them soon but in the meantime you can see all the previous very interesting articles in our article archive.  

Dave does occasionally take time off to relax as you can see fom this photo of Dave & Gru on holiday in Somerset last month!
