    Looking for local trusted pet services?

    Introducing Pet Hub

    If you have pets you will know that when looking for suitable services for them you want above all to find someone you can trust.

    At Wangford Veterinary Practice we are asked all the time if we can recommend local pet services such as groomers, pet boarding, pet sitters, walkers, photographers, shops and suppliers etc. The most important thing to them all is finding a service that not only is very good at what it does, but is also one that they can trust.

    Online Repeat Prescriptions from Wangford Vets

    Help us to help you

    If your pet is on long-term medication you can order a Repeat Prescription Online.

    This means ordering your pets repeat medication has never been easier. Through our website you have 24 hour access ordering medication, veterinary diets, supplements as well as flea and worm treatments

    Each application for a repeat prescription (however it is received) has to be checked against the animal’s history by a veterinary surgeon and Initialled as this is a legal requirement. Therefore, as the applications have to be processed carefully, we need adequate time to complete the dispensing. Please allow at least 2 working days (this excludes weekends and Bank Holidays), for your request to be processed.

    All rabbit owners should know about these serious diseases

    There are two main infectious diseases seen in rabbits which we can vaccinate against.

    The first is myxomatosis and the second is viral haemorrhagic disease(vhd), also called rabbit haemorrhagic disease (rhd).

    Both are caused by viruses and both can kill rabbits.

    Man's (and Woman's) Best Friend

    Our Poppies on 4 Paws Appeal runs until November the 11th and we are asking pet owners to show their support by displaying a special clip on poppy on their dog’s collar or harness. These poppies are plastic, quite durable and florescent so perfectly suitable for a dog to wear.

    Dogs truly are man’s best friend, they have for many years and still do serve alongside human soldiers so it’s appropriate that we should in return, show our support and thanks by commemorating them in this way.

    IS IT SAFE to give my dog ice cubes and frozen treats?

    Addressing your concerns about NexGard flea &tick treatment

    It has come to our attention that concerns have been raised by members of the
    public about the use of NexGard / NexGard Spectra to treat our dogs against
    ticks and fleas.

    Facebook is a valuable tool for circulating information, however, the NexGard
    information in the post we saw is not validated nor put into context and so has
    led to confusion and unnecessary concern. As you will see later in this article not treating your pet may actually be detrimental to its health.

    Puppy parties - the best possible kind of socialising experience

    Puppies learn a lot when they play. We provide a safe place for them to socialise and have a positive encounter with other pups. They also get to meet our vets and nurses while experiencing a variety of new sights, sounds and smells. Things we take for granted - like hats or umbrellas - or men with beards - can seem strange and maybe even scary to young dogs. At the puppy party they’ll encounter these things and more - they’ll even learn about letters coming through the letterbox and landing on the floor!

    Animal charities tell us: “Christmas is always a sad time of year – more dogs are brought in during this time and it can be difficult re-homing them, not least because families have little money left at this year to take on the responsibility and cost of a new pet.

    All rescue homes/ charities are completely reliant on the generosity of the public to feed homeless dogs and cats 365 days a year and that amounts to enormous quantities of food that have to be found.
