What's better than one G-Pig? Well, two of course!🥰 We can't think of a much better way to brighten up your morning.
These two cuties, Luna and Fluff, came in for a nail clip back in April!✂️ Nail trimming is important for Piggies as their nails tend to curl round as they grow and potentially grow into their pads. This can damage their skin and cause open wounds, not forgetting reducing their ability to wander around.
⚠️We are open this week 8.30am-6pm, Saturday 10am-2pm, still by appointment only. Our Rugeley branch is open 10am-6pm.
Please bear with us with the phone lines on a Monday, they are always busier than normal. Thank you for your ongoing patience.

Crush it and mix it
We put medication in creamy cheese and it works everytime.
I had a cat just like that. You could put pill in food. Still there. Put it in its mouth and rub throat. Still there. Wrap cat in a towel and repeat. Still there. Crush it in foil or milk still there. Crafty little buggers. X
Quiff no problem - if it's in his bowl it IS food! Ginny however can leave a saccharin sized tablet in an otherwise well cleaned bowl xx
Meet Doodle the Labradoodle!😍 He was only 11 weeks here, being a brave boy for (what looks like) a boring health check with vet Steve.🙊 He'll be 17 weeks now, and no doubt just as handsome!💙

We have already seen THREE cases this morning of dogs with heat stroke.
🆘We can’t stress enough the importance of reminding you how to deal with your animals in the heat.
🆘We still see cases of heat stroke regularly and it is PREVENTABLE!
🆘Don’t take your dogs out in this weather, especially at the hottest times of the day (10am-7pm – later on some days). It’s not worth the risk! See the handy guide from vets now below when it is safe to take your dogs with you. Dogs who are overweight, flat-faced or already have an underlying health condition are at much higher risk even in what is considered lower temperature.
❌NEVER leave dogs in cars.
🆘Make sure your small animals have shade and cool, fresh water.
❗️❗️❗️If you’re concerned your pet may have heat stroke, contact the practice IMMEDIATELY❗️❗️❗️
Signs include panting excessively or struggles with breathing, increased body temperature, drooling and sometimes vomiting. This can lead to collapse, seizures and death.
