We’re helping rescued pets!
There are many pets in rescue centres in this area. Could you spare some food/ a toy or some blankets to cheer up their days? Just drop them off to use (there’s a collection box in reception and we’ll make sure they are sent where they are needed). This year we are collecting for Appledown Rescue Kennels and our local branch of Cats Protection.
There have been varying local news reports about Alabama Rot. Dogs may present with area of red or ulcerated skin. Over a period of time kidney failure develops.
As yet the cause of this disease is unknown.
If you are concerned then please call us on 01525 373329
Cats Protection Rehoming Day – a great success!

ome can be found for the. They rely on help and funding from the general public.

Sadly we see poisoning with antifreeze every year. Even a very small amount of antifreeze can cause kidney failure and death.
To help prevent this:
- Please clean up any spillages immediately – no matter how small.
- Keep all containers tightly sealed and away from pets, clearly labelled.
- Check your car is not leaking coolant onto your driveway.
- Always dispose of antifreeze safely and responsibly.
- If you suspect your pet has been in contact with antifreeze contact us immediately. The signs of poisoning (vomiting, depression, seizures) do not show until 2 days or so after exposure – by which time it is often too late to save a pet.
Rock Salt Poisoning
Salt used on roads in cold weather can cause illness if pets lick the salt from their paws. Clean your pets paws with water or a mild shampoo after walking in rock salt. If you are concerned that your pet has eaten some rock salt please contact usimmediately
With so many great pet-friendly activities and fun days in this area we thought we could do with a guide to what’s going on locally.
