A dog is one of the most popular pets, in most cases it is a conscious decision to take on ownership of a dog. With this ownership comes a very special bond between family and dog. Taking ownership of a dog is also a great responsibility; you will be responsible for ensuring that the dog is fed, has access to fresh water and has plenty of opportunity for exercise and company. There is also the responsibility for the dog’s medical care. Veterinary bills can become expensive, for this reason we strongly recommend that you take out pet for your dog. It can be very confusing ensuring that you have taken out the correct for your budget and that is best for the dog. We are more than happy to discuss and advise you on the most suitable policy for you and you dog.

Also at the surgery we are very happy for you to come in and talk through any questions that you may have with regards to any aspects of the healthcare of your dog including food, vaccinations, neutering, behaviour, buying toys to keep them entertained, worming, flea treatment and other questions that you may have.

Depending on the breed of your dog, they can live for 10-16 years, the world’s oldest dog according to the Guinness book of records was 29 years old when he died! (insert link) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/japan/8942138/Worlds-oldest-dog-dies-in-Japan.html

We are all pet owners and pet lovers at the surgery just like you. We have repeatedly seen what happens when a pet owner cannot afford the veterinary treatment a pet so desperately needs; in the worst of cases, they may have to resort to putting their beloved pet to sleep. We can think of few things so awful, yet so preventable.
