Three Years of Protection!

Did you know that there is a vaccination for dogs which will give 3 years protection against Parvovirus, Distemper and Hepatitis? Sounds great doesn’t it? But this doesn’t mean that we should skip our yearly checkups. It is vital that dogs still have a yearly check up as well as a yearly Kennel Cough vaccination. So why should you consider changing?

My Pet has a Lump - Should I be worried?

***WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS IMAGES OF A VETERINARY PROCEDURE*** Skin lumps can range from harmless to serious and the problem is they can all look the same. All lumps should have diagnostic testing. This involves introducing a needle into the lump and harvesting cells to examine under a microscope (cytology). The cell types determine if the lump is due to infection, inflammation or cancer. Some lumps may require surgical removal to get the diagnosis.
