Paws A While

National Veterinary Nurse’s Day


Friday 14th October 2022 is National Veterinary Nurse’s Day.
It is great to acknowledge the hard work and efforts of our veterinary nurses. The nurses do a lot of work behind the scenes that you do not see or hear about. The nurses monitor the patients whilst under general anaesthetic, medicate animals whilst in hospital, answer enquiries, clean the hospital, and ensure the smooth running of the veterinary hospital. Without the veterinary nurses, we would not be able to do our job as veterinarians.
We will be celebrating by having a long lunch on the day, which is hard to do in a busy veterinary hospital.
We have 24 nurses at the hospital, and I hope you get to know them as you come and visit our hospital.

Kitten Adoption. Adopt a Friend for Life!

Our Kitten Adoption Program enables us to find homes for stray and unwanted kittens.
We have 2 lovely kittens ready for adoption now!
The kittens are 21 weeks old. They are both males. One white and one ginger tabby.
They have playful personalities and are so much fun to watch when they play together.
Both kittens have a health check. They have had their kitten vaccinations, been desexed, microchipped and have a product called Advocate applied, which controls fleas, intestinal worms and heartworm. We also worm them for tapeworms.
When you adopt a kitten you are making a long term decision. Cats can live up to 20 years if provided with a loving caring home. Kittens have certain requirements including providing a balanced and nutritious diet which you will need to change to an adult formula after the age of 6 to 9 months.
Your kitten needs a yearly vaccination to protect it against diseases. Routine flea and worm medication must be also given.
If you are interested in adopting one of our kittens, feel free to pop in for a visit.
