Spring is upon us and everyone will be enjoying spending more time outside. Our Spring Newsletter contains some fascinating articles, special offers and information that we hope you will find useful at this time of year.
Following reports of a number of deaths among dogs who have been walked in local woodland, a very current issue that we have been asked a lot about recently is 'Alabama Rot' or 'New Forest Disease'. We have added an article all about this in our News Section.
A very special congratulations to Rachael Jackson who, after years of hard study, was recently successful in her Veterinary Nursing examinations and visited the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons last week for her 'graduation' ceremony. She is now a Registered Veterinary Nurse.

Club of the Month - April: Kitten Club
Owning a kitten can bring great joy to you and your family but ownership of a cat also means taking responsibility for its care and ensuring the health of both your family and the kitten. This means feeding a proper diet for the varying stages of its life, taking preventive health seriously (worming, vaccination and flea control), microchipping, neutering, thinking about Insurance, inside and outside safety etc.
Make a FREE appointment to see our Nurses at the KITTEN CLUB. There you will learn about all of the above and more, take home a FREE goodie bag and money off vouchers for use against many of the products and services we have.
