Pets’ Corner May 2015

April is designated Pet month where we, the veterinary profession, promote responsible pet ownership. Again this year we are holding a combined car boot sale & dog show at Selworthy on Sunday 3rd May. Please check our website for details. Proceeds are for the PDSA and this is the final push to raise money for Jacob’ and Natasha’s charity trek across Iceland. Please come and support them.

This spell of warm weather will wake up our old friend the flea. Don’t forget to start your pet’s flea control as early as possible. There are a number of treatment options available so please ask at the surgery for advice on the treatment that is most appropriate for your pet.

With summer in the air please dog owners take care where there are fishermen. Dogs are attracted to discarded bait often with hooks attached and these become lodged in the dog’s throat or stomach. Beware also of crabbing bait bags these can be swallowed whole by the dog. The dog we admitted the other evening had swallowed the bait bag but the trace line and the supporting metalwork was snagged in the dog’s oesophagus making recovery very complicated. My dog had a fish hook snagged in his tongue 2 months ago while we walked on the beach at Strete Gate.I appeal to fishermen & crabbers to be responsible and not leave bait and hooks for dogs to gain access to.
