Firstly a very Happy Easter to you all!

I'll get the nag over with early on - dogs and chocolate!!  There's likely to be a lot of chocolate around this holiday - I certainly intend to eat my share of eggs and bunnies but PLEASE make sure your dog doesn't get any of those easter goodies.  Dogs can die from chocolate poisoning and we hear of cases all the time and Easter really is a danger time so please be aware and keep them separate.  The high cocoa solid chocolate is most dangereous and the more they eat the worse it is, so if your dog does burgle some of those easter eggs get in touch with the surgery straight away.

On the subject of possible poisoning, our news section has a section on slugbait poisoning in pets (I bet many of you were out in the garden over the weekend dealing with slugs and snails!) and a report on lily poisoning in cats - it is potentially a real problem so if you have cats and flowers it's definitely worth a read.

We are very pleased to be welcoming Pablo Vila to the practice.  Pablo will join our team of vets in early May so read all about him in the news section.

We have lots of very exciting things in the pipeline for 2015 which we will be keeping you up to date with here on the website and on our facebook page so watch this space!  We will also be "fine tuning" our Puppy Packages which 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.  In the meantime we have re-run a rather topical but very useful article on overweight pets - most of us could do with shedding a few pounds after all the holiday eating and this often applies to our four-legged friends as well so have a read and make a slimmer, healthier and therefore happier pet your goal for spring 2015!

Here at Dave Cumber vets we are not just about cats and dogs - in the spirit of Easter, a picture of Dave with a bunny!

ps did you notice how I dropped in that new name - more about this in the very near future!!

happy easter from dave cumber vets
