Celebrating “Veterinary Nurse Awareness Month”
May is VETERINARY NURSING AWARENESS MONTH!
Throughout the month of May we will be sharing advice about each and every service our amazing Nurses provide here at Bay Vets!
Veterinary nurses play an important role in the care of your pet, and are a vital member of the veterinary team. They carry out technical work and are skilled in undertaking a range of diagnostic tests, medical treatments and minor surgical procedures, under veterinary surgeon direction.
Veterinary nurses also advise on keeping pets healthy and in many practices run their own nursing consultations and out-patient checks.
Take a look at just how skilled our nursing team are here at Bay Vets by visiting the following webpage: https://www.bayvets.co.uk/nurse-clinics/
Brush up on the facts of your pets dental hygiene
NATIONAL PET DENTAL HEALTH MONTH – FEB 2017
To celebrate National pet dental health month, here at Bay Vets we will be hosting “FREE DENTAL HEALTH CHECKS” with our Veterinary Surgeons for the month of February only.
Brushing your pets teeth isn’t just about fresh breath. Gum Disease is a common, serious problem in pets, yet brushing can prevent it.
Vets estimate that 85% of dogs over 5 years of age suffer from periodontal disease, which develops when food particles and bacteria collect along the gum line and form soft deposits called plaque.
Over time plaque develops into hard tartar and this can cause gum inflammation. As the inflamed gums begin to separate from the teeth, pockets form in which bacteria grow, causing periodontal disease to get worse. This can lead to pain, loss of teeth and bacterial infection which can speak to kidneys, liver or their brain.
Periodontal disease is irreversible so prevention is the key to keeping your pet healthy & happy.
It is ideal to brush your pets teeth daily like you would your own, but if you schedule doesn’t allow this then aim to brush at least several times a week.
If you are unsure on your pets dental hygiene or have any concerns, simply contact your nearest Bay Vets surgery to book your free check up.

Calling all Wildlife enthusiasts!!!
The popular BBC television series Autumnwatch is currently being filmed this week at Leighton Moss in Silverdale, and Vicky, Jo and Ellie from our Milnthorpe Surgery have been invited along tonight to their Live BBC show.
Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch are annual BBC television series which chart the fortunes of British wildlife during the changing of the seasons in the United Kingdom. The programmes are broadcast live from locations around the country in a primetime evening slot on BBC Two and BBC Two HD. They require a crew of 100 and over 50 cameras, making them the BBC’s largest British outside broadcast events. Many of the cameras are hidden and operated remotely to record natural behaviour, for example, of birds in their nests and badgers outside their set.
So why not head over to BBC2 tonight at 8pm and see what the girls are up to.
