Winter weather can be a bit unpredictable! But we’ve certainly had our fair share of wind and rain recently! And now an “arctic blast” might be on the way! Oh, the joys of winter! Keeping ourselves dry and warm at this time of year can be hard work, and caring for our pets through the winter has its own challenges.
Have you made any resolutions this new year? Do any of them involve your pets? If you’re still on the look out for a good new year resolution, how about resolving to teach your pets a new skill or giving them some extra special attention.
Christmas is a time for family. For some of us, that means travelling away from home to visit friends and relatives. Sometimes our pets can come along for the ride, but sometimes they need to have a little holiday of their own. As we’re getting close to the holiday season, we thought we’d share a couple of tips about choosing and using a kennels or cattery.
We’ll all have noticed the evenings drawing in since the clocks went back an hour. The shorter days mean that our pets will often be out and about in the dark.

We’ve put together a few tips for keeping us and our pets safe and happy after sunset.
It’s senior dog month at your Local Vets practice, so we thought we’d share with you some tips and advice to help you care for your older dog.
Summer Lane Vets is pleased to announce that we can now spay your female dog using key hole surgery. Known as a laparoscopic spay, this is an alternative to the traditional surgical method. As many of us will know from human medicine, keyhole surgery is less invasive and allows faster recovery time.
Our pets can’t understand what fireworks are about. To them, the loud noises and bright flashes are scary and unexpected and our pets often want to escape from what is a high-stress situation for them.
On average, cats spend two thirds of every day sleeping. That means a nine-year-old cat has been awake for only three years of its life! And cats tend to sleep more as they get older…
Most pet owners know that ticks are bad news for our furry family members. But did you know they are pose a risk to the rest of the family too?
