Your team at Thompsons
Autumn is definitely here.
It is nice to walk your dog in autumn, not as hot as it has been.
The woods around us are lovely. Or are they?
Probably you have heard that in recent years we had problems with what they call now the Seasonal Canine Illness (SCI)
This disease has emerged in different areas including Clumber Park and Sherwood Forest.
We can not say for sure that it is only confined to those areas, but it seems to be mostly connected to wooden areas.
Dogs show a sudden onset of sickness and skin rash. They can quickly become very lethargic. The best is to see veterinary attention straight away.
There is still no cause found for SCI, but the Animal Health Trust is investigating. The only common themes seem to be an infestation with harvest mites and dogs which have travelled further.
Please check www.aht.org.uk/sci
We have definitely seen an increase in harvest mites. The mites as such do not cause the SCI, but they can be very irritating.
As shown they are tiny and bright orange. They are more like ticks. They can be removed by washing and direct application of Frontline spray.
Our lovely vet Michelle has given birth to her daughter Georgina.
On Sunday the 3rd of Feb, nearly on time, she decided to make her appearance.
We wish her all the best and hope to see her soon
Lots of love from Thompsons
Michelle and Emma
Michelle is busy with her little baby girl, so we have found a lovely vet to take her place.
We like to introduce you to Emma. She has been working in London, but is kind of going back to her home. She first started her working career in Nottingham. We are sure she can fill Michelle‘s shoes.
Senior cat clinics
How old is your cat?
Over 8 years? In their teens?
Cats do not seem to get older, they don‘t go grey, they don‘t complain. Unfortunately they are very good at hiding any old age signs. Of course, old age is not a disease, but your body does change. We see lots of osteoarthritis, chronic kidney disease, Hyperthyroidism and cognitive dysfunction. Hopefully your cat does not have any of those diseases. To make sure of that and to recognise signs early we offer a senior cat clinic.
Our nurses can talk to you about lots of things we can do to help your ageing cat. They can take your cat‘s blood pressure. Yes, cats can get high blood pressure too.
And we offer a free annual urine test for cats over 8 years old.
