And tonight...Rabbits and small furries 🐰🐹 Our small furry friends are very easily stressed by loud noises such as fireworks. Bring their hutch inside if possible. If not in the house, inside a garage or a shed may help. If you can't bring them inside at all, turn their hutch to face the wall. This may help black out the lights from the fireworks and dull the sounds. You can cover their hutch with a thick blanket to help dull the sounds, but ensure they have enough ventilation. If they are inside or if you have a house Rabbit or guinea pig, draw the curtains to help block out the flashes. Close the windows to muffle the bangs outside and put the TV or radio to help drown out the sounds. But not too loud, they aren't used to any loud noise. Give them lots of extra bedding so they can burrow down in it and hide if they want Perhaps a cardboard box filled with hay, with holes cut in it could provide an extra place to hide. Rabbits are social animals so keep them with their companion if they have one to limit the stress of firework fear. If they are not used to human contact, try to leave them alone as handling them may stress them even more so. Please speak to us at the surgery if you have any concerns for your small furry friends this firework season.

Tonight we talk about our feline friends 🐱 Before fireworks night, consider getting your cat microchipped or if they already are then check the details are up to date. They may get spooked by the loud noises and find themselves lost. We would advise keeping your cat inside at night during the fireworks. You can help to block out some of the firework noise by switching on the TV or radio but make sure it’s not too loud. Keeping the curtains closed will help to block out the bright lights accompanying the bangs. Let your cat pace around your home and miaow if they want to. Your cat may hide in a 'den' for example under your bed. This is a safe place for them so try not to disturb them. Don’t get angry with your cat if you they have toileted in the house after being left on their own, or during the fireworks noise. Shouting at them will only make them more stressed. It's tough to see your cat scared and anxious but its best to remain as calm as possible. Try to act normally, cuddle and stroke them if it helps them relax but leave them alone if they prefer to hide instead. Speak to us if you are concerned about your cats behaviour around the firework season. There may be medications we can prescribe to help calm them during this difficult time. There are also a number of natural therapies such as pheromone adapters and sprays.

Each year thousands of pets are severely affected by fireworks. Over the next few days we will be posting tips on how to keep your pets safe and happy during this stressful time. Let's focus on Dogs! 🐶 🐾Try to walk earlier in the day before the fireworks start. Keep your dog on a lead and ensure they have some form of identification incase they are spooked by any fireworks going off early. Make sure microchip details are up to date but consider an identity tag as this can bring them home to you quicker. Keep your dog indoors when fireworks are being let off. 🐾Having the TV or radio on might help to muffle the sound but don't have it up too loud or this may frighten them. Keep the curtains closed to help hide any flashing lights outside. 🐾Dogs show they are stressed or anxious in lots of ways, including panting excessively, drooling, shaking, yawning, ears back and putting their tail between their legs. If your dog drinks more, don't worry, they can do this when they are scared. 🐾Let them pace around, whine and hide if they want to. Once they have found a safe space try not to disturb them. They may find a 'den' such as under the bed. If they do, try to leave them alone but add some of your clothes around them and this may comfort them. 🐾I know how difficult it is to watch your dog stress over fireworks. But try not to let them sense that you are also worried. Remain calm, act normally. If they seek attention give them it. Try to praise calm behaviour. Never get angry at them for their behaviour, it will only make them more stressed. 🐾If your dog is anxious around this time, please speak to us this week and we will be able prescribe calming medication that may help them. We can try herbal calming remedies if their anxiety is mild or if your dog is like mine and their fear is intense, they may need a sedative to help them get through this weekend.

Sadly this week a beautiful puppy in our area lost her life to Lungworm. This is only the second confirmed case at our practice in a number of years and may be a sign that the disease has become more widespread. There's no way to know if this puppy contracted it down south or in Scotland but we should all be aware of the possibility of Lungworm. If your dog eats snails, slugs, licks slime trails, eats other dogs faeces or even eats grass-then there's a risk of this fatal disease. Symptoms are vague and include; Breathing problems and coughing Tiredness, depression Poor blood clotting-Excessive bleeding from even minor wounds and cuts General sickness Weight loss Poor appetite Vomiting Diarrhoea Changes in behaviour Seizures (fits) Traditionally worming is quarterly but to prevent this disease we need to worm your dog monthly with specific licenced products. Please speak to us at the surgery for further information regarding prevention of Lungworm. For more info visit; https://www.lungworm.co.uk

🐾🐾 We are delighted to announce that we have finally started our practice extension and refurbishment! We are expecting the building works to take a few months to complete and hope that the disruption will be kept to a minimum. There may be parts of the car park blocked off at certain times, we will maximise the remaining space as best we can, but please bear with us. To help see as many patients as possible at more disruptive times, we may be able to offer home visits for routine appointments. The extension will give us two new consulting rooms, increasing from 3 to 5, enabling us to help more patients and reduce waiting times. One room will be a dedicated nurse consult room, allowing us to run nurse-led clinics. We are also building a brand new kennel room. Our existing kennel room will become a new prep room, and the existing prep room will become an imaging suite for use of our x-ray, endoscopy, dental x-ray and ultrasound machines. There will also be many other internal refurbishments, as well as the addition of a customer toilet. Over and above increasing and optimising the size of the practice, we hope that these much anticipated changes improve workflow, patient care and overall client experience! 🐾🐾

This month marks Rebecca Davidson's 20th year at The Veterinary Centre. Lorna employed Rebecca as a fresh new graduate in 1997. The practice was very different then with Lorna working full time, vet Alison working part time and nurses Shirley, Bernie and Angela dealing with the patients and running front of house! The practice was based in the house, but the side extension had not yet been built. There was a garden and washing line out back and the Sunvic factory out front. Not the houses you see today! Lorna left the practice in good hands when she went on maternity leave and the clients quickly got to know Rebecca well. Becca soon flourished into the chatty, compassionate vet we all know, who loves nothing more than a good chin wag with all her regulars! After 10 years Rebecca went into partnership with Lorna and 'Lorna Gray Vets' transformed into 'The Veterinary Centre' Uddingston. In Lorna's own words - '20 years! And I couldn't have chosen a more lovely vet'. On behalf of the staff at the practice, we want to congratulate Rebecca on a fantastic 20 years...here's to many more! Xx 🐾❤
