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: //www.bayvets.co.uk/nurse-clinics/

HOME OR AWAY
People without pets can easily go away on holiday and do not need to worry about what to do with their pets. No expensive kennels and cattery costs but what would we do without our cherished pets.
Planning a holiday is fun, but don’t forget to plan your pets holiday as well. Do not leave it to the last minute to make provisions for them. If you plan to leave them in the kennels or cattery they stayed in last time remember that good ones fill quickly as we have just found out. Also, most importantly check that the booster vaccines are up to date or the kennels may have to refuse them or put them in quarantine.
PETS AND COMFORT EATING
For pet owners it can be a difficult decision whether to grant a demanding animal more food and when to say enough is enough.
One of Britain’s leading vets has attacked research reported recently, claiming that dogs and cats were becoming obese by “comfort eating” to cope with emotional distress.
