fielding and cumber Veterinary Surgeons - july 2014Sugar with parsley

July has certainly started in a summery fashion - lets hope it continues when the children finish for the holidays.  As ever a note of caution if you are travelling with your pet in the hot weather - please do not leave them in the car for any length of time.  Dogs especially die every year in this terrible and unnecessary way.  So always have plenty of fresh air and water available when you are out in the car with your pet and try and park in the shade....lecture over!

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.

We do seem a bit puppy orientated at the moment, what with the new Cumber puppy Gru. But our Weymouth receptionist Layla pointed out that when I metioned Gru enjoyed gardening I should also flag up the potential dangers, especially lungworm.  Lungworm is potentially fatal and dogs can pick it up by eating infected slugs and snails which act as carriers.  So do watch your dog when they are out helping you garden!  If you are interested in finding out more about lungworm take a look at Ruth's article from 2012.

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.

This month it is Layla's dog "Sugar" who is gardening - at least it's parsley not the roses!
