This year Rabbit Awareness Week is happening between 19th-24th June.
During this week, we are running FREE Rabbit Health Checks with our Veterinary Nurses, Louise Martin and Cara Palacio, at our Walnut Tree Hospital. The clinics will be available during the week at selected times. Our nurses will discuss general husbandry, diet, weight, vaccinations and dental disease and answer any questions you may have.

Today, Wednesday 14th June, We are joining Pet Blood Bank UK in celebrating World Blood Donor day!
We are recognising brilliant, heroic hounds across the country who help save lives by donating blood.
Just like people, sick animals often need blood transfusions. In many cases a blood transfusion can save an animals life! Blood is used for many purposes including trauma,surgery and disease. One donation of blood can save up to four lives.
We have been holding sessions with Pet Blood Bank since February 2016 and would love to welcome more life savers to our next session on Saturday 12th August. To register,please visit www.petbloodbankuk.org or call the surgery on 01908 397777 and ask for Jess. Please help us spread the word on this important day.
Below are just a few of our amazing donors. # Heroic Hounds ❤
During the start of 2017, we welcomed two new additions to our veterinary team expanding and increasing our knowledge and expertise.
Heather Fordham joined us as a Saturday vet initially, however has now increased her hours with us. Heather graduated from Glasgow University in 1988 and has a special interest in feline and chicken medicine. Outside of work, she is a big netball enthusiast along with having two children, two cats and a husband to look after.
Marina Crockford joined us in January this year on a full-time basis after previously working in Cardiff for the last 29 years. She has a strong interest in surgery including orthopaedics. In her spare time, Marina likes to hit the slopes in the winter and go cycling for the rest of the year.
The manufacturer of our rabbit vaccines is currently experiencing a temporary shortage in supply.
However, we have managed to source a multi-dose vaccine. This multi-dose vaccine needs to be used within 4 hours of opening and therefore we need to group rabbits requiring vaccines together.
We are holding a rabbit vaccination clinic at our Walnut Tree Hospital on:
• Saturday 17th June – morning appointments
Due to the inconvenience this may cause, we are offering a 25% DISCOUNT* on Myxomatosis vaccinations until supplies return to normal.
We are anticipating normal stock to resume from the start of July.
Please call 01908 397777 to book an appointment.
*Discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer and can only be used on a Rabbit Vaccine Clinic date.
