As the nights draw in and the leaves start to change colour, it is a reminder to all rabbit owners to prepare for the winter months ahead. Autumn can be a beautiful season, but it can also be very damp, windy and cold. Even though extreme, snowy weather usually doesn’t hit us until after Christmas, it is a good idea to be prepared. This is especially so if your rabbits normally live outdoors.

The increase in pet ownership, in particular kittens, has resulted in temporary cat vaccine supply-demand imbalance across the UK and Europe. The good news is that we have secured an allocation of vaccines and, with the stock we already have, we will be able to continue to vaccinate a large number of cats.
We humans are probably not looking forward to the shorter days of autumn and winter. For many people this often means getting up in the dark and coming home in the dark too. It can have implications for our pets as well, so now is a good time to review what we can do to keep our pets safe in the dark.
The winner of our September Pet’s Corner Posing Pets competition with the North Devon Journal is pretty kitty, Bubbles.
We are pleased to say that we will be reopening our practices from Monday 9th August but with continued reduced staffing we will prioritise emergencies, urgent appointments and 1st vaccinations. We continue to experience a high volume of calls and your patience is appreciated.
Due to COVID-19, we are experiencing considerable disruption to staffing levels and have had to close our Bridge House Pilton surgery from Friday 30th July for at least the next 10 days. We also have reduced staffing at Roundswell, Barnstaple and Mullacott, Ilfracombe. To help keep us all safe, please do not attend either practice unless you have a pre-booked appointment or have arranged to collected food/medication. If you have an appointment, you will still not be permitted to enter the building with your pet.
MiNightVet Due to Covid, the out of hours emergency service will be moving to the Arygll Barnstaple practice for tonight. The contact telephone number remains the same: 01271 318050.
