It became a legal requirement in April 2016 for all dogs in England to be microchipped. Make sure your dog has been microchipped.
If your dog has not already been microchipped, then ring the surgery to organise it
Bravecto is a THREE month flea and tick treatment delivered by a single tablet. Flea control is very effective and tick control is rapid enough to prevent the tick regurgitating its blood meal. This is imporant as infectious diseases, like Lymme disease, carried by ticks are delivered during this regurgitant phase.
As it is a tablet, dogs can be washed or go swimming as often as they want. Enquire at reception about this exciting product.
We have Heyrex collars, for rent or sale, to monitor the activity of dogs. These collars give an accurate record of your dog's movements, both running and scratching!
They offer the ability to record exercise improvement in arthritic dogs, following the start of new medication. They allow monitoring of exercise levels in weight loss programmes, setting targets. They also allow monitoring of levels of scratching during treatment for skin conditions, especially during food trials.
The collars link to a receiver connected to the internet router in your house. Data from the collar is sent daily to Heyrex, who produce an online record of the information, to which both you and your vet can access. Progress can be seen easily and any alerts of abnormalities are emailed to you both.
The collars can be rented per month, which includes the monthly analysis fee by Heyrex,or can be bought to keep.
