Quick Guide To Some Common Emergencies

If your pet is;

Bleeding
Clean the dirty wound with warm salt water (1/2 teaspoon of salt in a glass of water) and apply a clean cloth with pressure over the wound.

Seizuring (having a fit)
Make the room as dark and as quiet as possible.  Position your pet out of the way of anything that could cause injury.  Remember to avoid touching your pet around its mouth as it may bite you.

Make a note of the length of time the seizure lasts.  Keep your pet as cool as possible as they can overheat during a seizure.
Call the surgery.

Overheating
Cool with tepid water and offer water to drink then call the surgery for advice.

If your pet has;

Been hit by a car
Keep them warm, wrap in a blanket, keeping the nose and mouth exposed.  

If you think there may be broken bones, keep them as still as possible and place them on a hard moveable surface and transport them to the nearest vet.

Been attacked by a dog
Keep them warm, wrap in a blanket, keeping the nose and mouth exposed.  Do not attempt to break up a dog fight yourself – douse both dogs with water.  If you think there may be broken bones, keep them as still as possible and place them on a hard moveable surface and transport them to the nearest vet.

Microchipping

Microchipping

Since 06 April 2016, it is a legal requirement for all dogs to be microchipped in England and this will likely soon be expanded to include all cats. We strongly advise all pets be microchipped, even those that are kept indoors. If your pet gets lost or sadly taken without a microchip, it is very unlikely they will be found and returned to you safely.

Dental Care

Dental Care

Dental health is often an overlooked issue in dog and cats. It is estimated that 85% of dogs and cats over the age of three years of age will have some degree of dental disease. Here at The Guildford Vet, we believe helping owners understand the impact dental health can have on your pet’s overall health is important. We can where necessary perform dental scale and polish procedures in house, and carry out any necessary tooth extractions to help restore your pet’s dental health.
