Beware 'Jerky' Treats from China - added 23/08/2017

 

If your dog is unwell, usually vomiting and diarrhoea and increased drinking, following the ingestion of jerky treats from China, then contact us. Often dogs recover when the treats are no longer fed, but it can be more serious.

 

Alabama Rot - added 31/03/2017

 

Unfortunately there has been a case of this disease confirmed in Malvern.

 

The disease starts with skin lesions, often ulcers or raised nodules, generally on the legs or paws, but they can also be on the body, mouth or tongue. This develops within a few days to kidney disease, and ultimately kidney failure. It is fatal in nine dogs out of ten. It can occur in dogs of any breed or age and has occurred throughout the country, although most cases have been in Hampshire, Greater Manchester, and Dorst. It was first recognised in the UK in 2012, since when there have been 102 confirmed cases, ie about 20 cases  a year.

 

No environmental triggers have been identified and the cause is unknown. Not knowing the cause makes prevention difficult, but it has been suggested that washing your dog's paws thoroughly after a walk might help.

There is a possible winter/spring seasonality

 

If your dog suddenly develops skin lesions, make an appointment to see us as soon as you can (and we are now open on Sunday mornings 10 am to 12 noon).
