Dedicated Cat Ward

We are very pleased to announce the opening of our dedicated cat ward in November 2013.  Hospitalised cats will now be treated and housed in a dedicated ward with no access to dogs.  They won't have to hear any noisy barking or smell canine pheromones that dogs produce.  This will greatly reduces the stress felt by our feline patients and increase their comfort levels while staying with us.

Pet Jerky Treats could be fatal

 

More than 3000 dogs have become ill and almost 600 have died as a result of eating Chinese-made dog treats.  Most cases have been reported in America and Australia.  The treats that have been causing the problems are marketed as 'chicken jerky' treats and have resulted in kidney failure and in severe cases, death.  Unfortunately authorities haven't been able to identify the toxin that is causing the illnesses.  We are advising all dogs owners to be extremel careful when choosing treats for their dogs.  Owners should remember that treats should only be a very small part of the diet, and the same care should be taken when choosing treats as when choosing your dog's main diet.  The FDA has released these guidelines to help pet owners avoid the dangerous treats: FDA Facts: Jerky Pet Treats.  If you are concerned that your pet may have been exposed or your pet is showing signs of vomiting, diarrhoea, increased water consumption or any other signs that are unusual, please contact us to arrange an appointment as soon as possible.
