Easter 2018

We would like to wish all of our pet patients and their owners a Happy Easter!

Please make sure you order sufficient medication and/or food to last your pet over the holiday period, as we do not get deliveries on the bank holidays.

Our Easter opening times are as follows:

Good Friday (30th March) – 10.30-11am Emergency Surgery at Torquay

Easter Saturday (31st March) – 9am-4pm Torquay (1.30pm-4pm Paignton for collection of meds/food only, due to refurbishment works)

Easter Sunday (1st April) – 10.30-11am Emergency Surgery at Torquay

Easter Monday (2nd April) – 10.30-11am Emergency Surgery at Torquay

IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY OUTSIDE OF OPENING HOURS PLEASE TELEPHONE 01803 606059 FOR CONTACT DETAILS OF THE DUTY VETERINARY SURGEON.

At this time of year, please remember about the dangers of chocolate consumption in pets!  Every year we see at least one unfortunate dog who has consumed a dangerous amount of chocolate. Dark chocolate is particularly toxic.  Make sure you keep Easter eggs well out of your dog’s reach.  If your pet has consumed chocolate, don’t delay in contacting us – prompt treatment can be very effective. We will need to know what type of chocolate they have eaten and how much.

Other spring-time dangers to be aware of are:
Hot cross buns – raisins, currants, sultanas and grapes are potentially toxic to dogs.
Slug bait – this can cause serious problems if a dog ingests the pellets.
Daffodils – the bulbs are the greatest risk, but all parts of the plant are potentially toxic.
Lilies – lilies are highly toxic to cats, even if they simply lick pollen off their paws

Again, if you know your pet has ingested something they shouldn’t have, don’t delay in seeking advice from us on 01803 606059.
