Every year we see rabbits with the distressing disease myxomatosis. These cases are more common in spring, summer and early autumn while the weather is still warm.
Myxomatosis is a viral disease spread by direct contact with affected rabbits or carried by fleas and mosquitoes which have fed on an affected rabbit. The first signs seen are usually swollen eyes and genitals, conjunctivitis and the rabbit becomes lethargic and loses their appetite.
Myxomatosis is usually fatal and there is no specific treatment for it. The most that can be done for an affected rabbit is to alleviate their suffering.
The good news is that you protect your rabbit from this horrible disease with a simple vaccination. Now is the time to act before fleas and biting insects become active in the warm spring and summer weather and cause pet rabbits to become ill.
Just mention this offer when booking during March 2016 to qualify for £5 off the myxomatosis vaccine at MayfieldVet.
From April 2016 it is a legal requirement to have your dog microchipped.
Microchipping is a quick procedure which can be carried out during any routine visit to the practice. Here at MayfieldVet we find many dogs do not even notice the microchip being implanted as they are giving all their attention to the tasty biscuits we are offering them at the same time!
Once a microchip is implanted our reception team ensure all details are registered on the database so that your pet can be reunited with you should they wander or get lost.
During March and April 2016 we are offering microchips for the discounted price of £20.
Spring is a great time to welcome a bouncy new puppy into your family.
At MayfieldVet we want to help your new canine friend get the best start in life.
New puppies have a lot to learn and it can be a stressful time for them when they have just left their mum and all their brothers and sisters to come to a new envirmonment. With so many changes going on it is important to ensure they are in the best of health.
At MayfieldVet we offer a full health check and vaccinations for your new puppy against diseases such as parvovirus, distemper and leptospirosis. We can also offer advice about the optimal nutrition for your puppy as well as tips for helping your new pup settle in and get house trained.
During March and April 2016 we are running a special half price vaccination offer for all our new puppies. Don’t forget your new puppy needs to have a microchip too!
