RABBIT AWARENESS WEEK 17TH – 25TH JUNE 2017

To celebrate Rabbit Awareness Week (17th-25th June) here at Bay Vets, we will be holding FREE Rabbit Health Checks for the whole month of June.

What is RAW 2017?
This year’s Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW) is running from June 17th -25th, and this year we will be addressing the fact that rabbits remain one of the most misunderstood pets in the UK.

The key issue for the 2017 campaign is the lack of pet owner understanding around the importance of a hay-led, fibre-rich diet in supporting good digestive health, dental health and behavior, after the news that only 30% of owners report that their rabbits have constant access to fresh feeding hay for eating.

For more information speak to your nearest Bay Vets surgery to book in for a FREE rabbit health check.

The fireworks are coming!!

SLIMPOSSIBLE WITH BAY VETS 

Your pet’s quality of life will be dramatically reduced if you allow them to become overweight

Contact us now for guidance on your pets weight management

 

Just like humans, animals can become overweight if they eat too much, are fed an incorrect diet or don’t exercise regularly. As well as being bad for their waistline, becoming overweight will put your pet at risk of developing serious health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Animals have a tendency to eat whatever they are given until it is gone. It’s extremely important that your pet eats the correct amount of food for their breed and size. You should also ensure that the diet they are being fed doesn’t contain more energy than your pet uses.

Lots of factors can contribute to your pet gaining weight. Your furry friends’ age, breed, sex and neuter status can all play a part in becoming overweight.

Making sure your pet exercises regularly has a number of benefits. Not only will it prevent them from putting on weight, but their joints will remain in good health and you will have plenty of opportunity to spend quality time with your four legged friend.

If you’re concerned about your pet’s weight, we can help. At Bay Vets our nurses and veterinary surgeons work closely together, and can create personalised diet plans for your pet; whether they need to gain or lose weight. You will also be invited along to one of our FREE Slimpossible clinics that work similarly to the human meetings.

In the meantime, if you are concerned about your pet’s weight you can monitor it in between their annual visit to the vet. You should be able to see the outline of their ribs, see and feel their waist, and when you look at them from the side, their stomach should be tucked up out of view. If these points do not apply to your furry friend, bring them to see one of our friendly professionals at Bay Vets.

If you would like more information about which diet you should be feeding your pet, or you are concerned that they are gaining or losing too much weight, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can book a free consultation with one of our nurses who will provide you will lots of great information and tips on how to manage your pet’s waistline effectively.

Bay Vets Celebrating “International Day Of Charity”

Mon 5th Sept 2016 was “International Day Of Charity

To celebrate this day we “donated” 4 Bay Vets team members to our very hardworking local animal charities being: Wolfwood, Cats Protection, Save-A-Pet & Animal Care for the entire day to give a helping hand.

We had our RVN Head Nurse from Milnthorpe Vicky who worked with Animal Care, our puppy party queen/receptionist Charlotte who worked with Wolfwood, our Development Manager Sarah with Cats Protection and our Boutique Assistant Linda with Save-A-Pet. All 4 ladies thoroughly enjoyed their day with each charity.

Charity Day

Later in the afternoon Bay Vets Chairman then attended a meeting with each animal charity representative to meet Cooky from The Bay Radio. Cooky then interviewed each member and asked various questions about each charity and business.

Sarah the Development Manager from Bay Vets then presented each charity representative with a large chocolate hamper and thank you card for them to share with all of the volunteer team of each charity. We feel that each and every one of the volunteers of each animal charity work extremely hard and all their time given is unpaid for and in their own time and we wanted to share how much we value this.
