We say 'au revoir' to Janet Patrick. Janet has been with the Practice for almost 40 years and is the longest serving member of the Practice Team. Janet and her Dairy Farming husband, Ian, have moved to their new farm in Bolton where Janet is going to work around the farm and look after the office side of the business. We wish them both love and good luck in their new venture.
Nurse Club of the Month - March 2015: Kitten Club
New kitten? Congratulations. Cats make great pets but if you are new to the cat world or not had a kitten for a long time there is lots of help and advice we can offer. The first few months are full of fun but it is also really important that they are cared for properly, fed well for optimum development and trained to become a well-adjusted and good member of the family :-). You also want to ensure they and your family are kept disease free and as healthy as possible.
Our Nurses run a FREE KITTEN CLUB where they will teach you all you need to know about your new furry friend- healthy eating, development, play, behaviour and preventive health. Ask questions, make a new friend and walk away with a FREE information pack, various free samples and, as a club member, receive 10% discount on all Preventive Health Treatments, including DENTAL HEALTH products, FLEA products, WORM products and LIFESTAGE DIETS, in fact everything except vaccines. Ask at reception or contact us to find out what we have to offer.

Gunner had a small, innocuous nodule which had been present on his ear flap, slowly growing, over a period of months. When we saw him it wasn't bothering him but we thought we had better do some simple tests to find out what it was. What we found was quite scary......
Whenever we have an interesting or special case we will try and make then 'famous' by publishing their story on these pages. If you think your pet has had heroic treatment or surgery let us know.
