*PARVO ALERT!* January 2017


Sadly in the local area there has been an outbreak of parvo virus. This is a nasty, potentially fatal disease in unvaccinated dogs. Symptoms can include vomiting, bloody diarrhoea, fever and sadly in some cases sudden death. 

Puppies are more at risk from this disease but any unvaccinated dog is at high risk. 

Good news is that a vaccine is available and if your dog is up to date with their vaccines then you have little to worry about. If your dogs vaccine has run out or you're unsure about your dogs vaccine status please call us ASAP and we can make an appointment if necessary. 

Please do the best thing you can for your dog by vaccinating them and preventing this disease.
