Goings on at Amity this Winter

What makes you different makes you beautiful

At Amity we offer a wide range of services from acupuncture and laparoscopy to microchipping and vaccinations. Did you know that we also have a special interest in exotic pets? Lennon has embraced these animals for their diversity and as a result has worked with a wide range of exotics, so you can feel at ease bringing your small/scaly/feathered/furry companions to Amity. Just take a look at a few of our friends we have recently had the pleasure of meeting.

Winter Blues

We are in the midst of winter cold temperatures and short days can cause a few problems for our pets. Here are a few things to watch out for:

Cold temperatures outside means heating is on inside to thaw out those toes. Unfortunately the increased heat indoors also brings alive the flea! Remember to keep on top of flea treatment throughout the year to keep those pests at bay!

The cold can also make our furry friends a little stiff in the joints. How about trying our joint care supplements to help maintain healthy joints? Find out more here.

Don’t forget to give some extra protection to any outdoor pets by adding an extra layer over enclosures to keep out the cold bitterness of winter.

Over indulging is common practice for us and our pets at Christmas. Many of us are keen to get out and start moving again but are often having to walk in the dark. Always make sure you can be seen and don’t forget your Hi-Viz!

Microchipping

A recent study from the British Veterinary Association (BVA) shows that a whopping 40% of vets say that they are unable to reunite lost dogs with their owners due to incorrect contact details on the microchip database.

Make sure your pet can be reunited by checking the microchip is working and contact information is correct. There are a few data bases out there so don’t hesitate to contact us to check your pet’s microchip!

Alabama Rot

By now most will have heard of this deadly disease, it’s been in the news quite a lot. Very little is known about Alabama rot making it difficult to identify and treat. There is evidence that suggests cases are more dominant between November and June so now’s the time to educate ourselves and keep watch. Here is a useful website providing more information.

Family Matters

We ended 2017 with a little client get together just before Christmas with festive treats and a chance to have a chat to really get to know everyone! It was lovely listening to all of your stories from dog walks to travelling, truly inspiring. With the start of 2018 we would like to say a big thank you to all of our clients for your continued support. Our numbers have been growing steadily, showing hard work and dedication does pay off. A big thank you to all that have left us lovely reviews on our Facebook and website, we always welcome feedback to help us to keep the innovation flowing, so don’t hesitate to get in touch. We wish you all the best for the New Year ahead and look forward to seeing you and your pets soon!

Lennon, Lorraine and Charlie

Family Matters.
