Important Lungworm Prevention Update
Attention all dog owners! Lungworm (Angiostrongylus vasorum) is becoming an increasing threat to your pet's health with several reported cases in the Merseyside area within the last few years. We advise all dog owners to make sure that you protect your pet against this parasite as part of your normal worming and flea treatment regime.
At present there are a few products that provide protection against Lungworm - we advise the use of Mipet Enderectid or Advocate every four weeks topical product on th eback of the neck If you do not like putting things on your dogs neck there is an alternativbe to use a tablet such as Milbemax every four weeks for lungworm protection - this differs from the three monthly dosing regime you may be familiar with. We have had confirmed cases in L25 post codes
Please contact us if you unsure whether your dog is protected or not and we will be happy to advise you.
New App for Heart Patients
If your pet has been diagnosed with a heart condition it is very important to keep up with regular appointments and reviews to make sure that they are on the correct dose of medication, otherwise their condition may get worse. It is also vital that owners keep a close eye on their pet at home and contact us as soon as they are concerned about them. To help make home-monitoring easier for owners, CEVA have produced an App for use with smartphones to monitor and record your pet's breathing rate quickly. A graph produced from these results can then be quickly emailed to us do that we can be kept up-to-date on how your pet is doing.
The App can be downloaded on iTunes and Google Play by searching for 'Cardalis'.

Earlier this month 4 of our dedicated staff members spent an entire weekend at the British Veterinary Zoological Society conference in Luton. The
weekend was filled with lectures, discussions and presentations about recent developments in the care of exotic species (birds, reptiles and mammals) and was greatly enjoyed by all attendees! At
these meetings we have the chance to talk with other exotics vets about new or advanced techniques that helps us to provide the very best standard of care available - we can even help to teach them a
thing or two!
We are already incorporating our new knowledge into our daily work and hope that you notice the benefits.
Dog and cat owners shouldn't feel that they are being left out, rest assured we will soon be embarking on more training adventures targeted towards their pets - after we have recovered fully from the exertion!!
