September 2012 – Myxomatosis
We are currently seeing a large number of cases of myxomatosis. This almost invariably fatal disease affects rabbits and can be vaccinated against. If your rabbit has not been vaccinated in the last year, please contact us for advice.
March 2012 – Parvovirus
There has been an outbreak of canine parvovirus in this area, as well as elsewhere in the UK. Its main signs are severe bloody diarrhoea and vomiting. Intensive treatment can save some dogs but many, mostly younger or weaker individuals, will die.
Vaccination against parvovirus should be routine for all dogs and provides good protection against this potentially fatal disease
If you are not sure, please ask at reception to confirm your dog’s vaccinations are up to date.
