Advice from John

Children and Dogs

Don’t just take it for granted that because your dog is good with your children that he or she will be fine with all children. Don’t be paranoid, however, exercise caution with dogs around children, particularly those under 8 years. Also be very careful with puppies and small children, often children don’t realise their strength and can damage internal organs on pup with a very affectionate cuddle.


Christmas time and lots of food around

Be certain to ask your guests not to feed your dog. Many foods that are fine for humans are not so good for dogs.
The last thing you want during the festive season is a sick dog and a big Vet bill.
Ask your Vet to provide you with a list of dangerous foods and plants and don’t over feed your dog.


Heat and Dogs

Dogs rarely die from cold, but often die from heat exhaustion. Please exercise plenty of care over the summer months, a dog can die locked in a hot car just as quickly as a child can. Also be very cautious on hot pavements, dogs pads are no tougher than our feet unless conditioned. Even then radiant heat from the pavement is not far from dogs vital organs. It is never a good idea to walk your dog in the heat of the day.
