Milo the Cockapoo puppy visited us this week for his monthly weight check and worming treatment. 🐶
We encourage all owners to make regular visits with their new puppies. It important to monitor their growth and ensure that worm treatments are dosed correctly. These visits are also excellent from a socialisation point of view and are a great way to prevent anxiety when visiting the vets. Our nurses always make sure puppies have a positive experience with lots of fuss and treats!
Milo was such a good boy and was particularly fond of nurse Nicola! 😊🥰 ... See MoreSee Less
Yes deffinately. Some dogs have a more nervous temperament than others and startle easily. When I walked dogs up at rescue, I would do a mock examination. Only mock -- as I am not a vet -- just gentley having dog stand in the posture it would at vets, to check their paws, nails, teeth, belly, etc, while calm and happy. 🙂 (they actually enjoyed the attention.)
We have just rehomed a very anxious 1 year old. She had her boosters last Monday and I had to carry her in as she was so scared. She could do with more socialisation at the vets before her spaying operation in November. Should I ring in advance to arrange some visits?
Vet Claire had an eventful night on call this week! Claire was called out by one of our farm clients to attend to a cow struggling to calve during the early hours of Tuesday morning. It became apparent that the cow would not be able to calve naturally. Claire had to perform an emergency caesarean section in order to save the life of both cow and calf. To the delight of all, a healthy live calf was delivered 😃............ and it was evident why the cow was struggling to calve! Take a look at this HUGE calf!! 😱 🐮🐮🐮 ... See MoreSee Less
Snug as a bug in a rug 😄. Bentley was enjoying his snuggly blanket this morning after his Pre-med. All dogs having a General Anesthetic have a Pre-medication injection which is to help relax and support a smooth anaesthetic 💉💊. Safe to say Bentley was very chilled 😆 ... See MoreSee Less

This lovely lady is Eula May. Recently she has been rather poorly with a chest infection. 😢
Luckily the team at Shepley were able to help her recover with the help of our very own small animal nebuliser! Nebulisers work by turning liquid medications into a mist which is then inhaled. They are often useful in the treatment of patients with respiratory problems.
After several nebulisation sessions, Eula May is feeling more herself again! 😊🐔 ... See MoreSee Less
This incredibly handsome chap is Rohan the Irish Wolfhound, checking out the new treadmill and monitoring his own stats during his session at our Animal Rehabilitation Centre. He’s particularly impressed with the flat walk-in, as he finds ramps difficult due to his condition although he’s come on amazingly.
And, at 88kg, the ARC team are glad he doesn’t need to be lifted any more.....! 😃 ... See MoreSee Less
