The traditional quiet summer period in Farm animal practice didn’t ever seem to arrive this year- perhaps connected with the fact that we didn’t have much of a summer. Now it’s almost time to house the cows.
This Autumn we are running a cardiology campaign to help you identify the signs of heart disease in your pet. Certain breeds including Boxers, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Doberman and Dachshunds are at a higher risk of developing heart disease as well as any pets who have been identified with a heart murmur. Up to the end of November 2017 we are offering half price consultations with a vet to check your pet's heart and discuss what you can do at home to help identify any heart issues.
If there are any concerns re your pets heart we are also offering a discounted package of blood tests and x-rays to furher investigate and manage your pets condition. For more information please contact the surgery
We are so pleased to announce our new clinic is now OPEN. The new facility is the result of a lot of hard work behind the scenes, but we’re so proud of it. We feel our facility is as modern as anything in the country and our patients and their owners will benefit from a design that allows a much better flow of horses and people through the building.
We had a really great time at our Guts of the Matter Equine Skills day run by Claire Hodgson - the day was about learning how the horse's digestive system worked. Thank you to our friends at the Humane Education Society in Wilmslow where we ran the course. Here you can see Claire demonstrating use of a weigh tape on one of our friends there!
We're really delighted to announce we've achieved the criteria to be a rabbit friendly practice.
We're so happy to have bunny friendly status at our Macclesfield Surgery. This is awarded by the rabbit welfare association and fund. More more details go to... www.rabbitwelfare.co.uk
We have been made aware of an outbreak of Equine Influenza in Cheshire. This follows a number of other outbreaks in Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Northamptonshire. This gives us a good opportunity to remind our clients to check their horse's vaccinations are up to date.
What happens when your pet visits us for a teeth clean.
We recently had to clean up Millie's teeth which had developed large amounts of tartar covering the surface and decided that videoing her experience would help show what happens when your pet visits us.
