We are always looking for ways in which we can improve the service we offer you and your pets and Dave and Malcolm have just been away at a veterinary congress in Wales to catch up on all the latest ideas.  It is a great way to find out what other vets around the country are doing and there is always something new to learn.  Talks covered a wide range of topics, from how we can help, reassure and inform you on your first visit with your new pet right through to how we can help and support you at the end of your pet's life.  There was also a very interesting discussion around how we can improve the veterinary experience for our cat owning clients and their feline friends.  We are already working towards the status of "Cat Friendly Practice" and 2 of our vets - Sarah and Amy - are especially interested.  Amy has just started working towards a specialist certificate in feline medicine and as a practice we will be reviewing the service we offer to our cat patients in the next few months.

Whilst on the subject of training we have our head nurse, Sam, doing a specialist course in anaesthesia and she has already come back with some great ideas which we have put into practice.  James who many of you will know has a particular interest in orthopaedics, will be starting an advanced course later this year so it's all go here at the surgery.

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!
