One of the most common things  clients ask us to check are “lumps” on the skin.  Lumps are common in our pets but they can vary widely in their nature and importance. Because of the possibility that a lump may be malignant (nasty cancer), we always recommend that we look at any lumps your pet develops. In our exam we will have a look at its shape, size, colour and  location.  We will also check to see if there are any other lumps present.  But we will take into account some information from you.  It is always helpful if you are able to tell us; When you first n ..read more

We all love Summer (well at least that’s how I feel) with the longer, warmer days, beautiful flowers and relaxing holidays, however, for dogs especially,   Summer can bring challenges. Many of these can be mitigated or avoided entirely with a little knowledge, preparation and alternative action from their owners. Heat Stroke: Dogs don’t do well if they are out in the Summer Sun for too long because panting isn’t a very efficient way to cool air.   This is worsened if; your dog being trapped in a car with little fresh air, your dog is overweight or long haired, your dog i ..read more
