Vets and nurses on the premises 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
If you need us for an urgent enquiry of an emergency just call, we answer the phone 24 hours a day (01235) 524 777. Emergencies in the night are seen at our Abingdon Veterinary Surgery. Please note we have a reduced staffing level at night so we would kindly ask that for routine enquiries and appointments you call during our main opening hours.
With this extremely hot weather we are still seeing too many owners taking unnecessary risks with their dogs.
We urge everyone not to walk your dogs after 8.30am or before 7.00 - 8.00pm as it is simply too hot!
We are still seeing dogs being walked at lunch time - the hottest point of the day.
How would you feel walking barefoot with a fur coat on in this heat?
Our dogs in the UK are not acclimatised to this heat so we need to protect them from it. We are still seeing dogs being left in cars - no amount of time is safe in this heat, no matter the time of day.
Our staff are treating cases of heat stroke every day, with some unlucky dogs not surviving.
Please don’t let your dog be the next victim of this heat. Help us to spread this important message - share our Facebook post, tell your friends and family, because the endless posts on social media still aren’t getting the message across.
Help us save lives and spread this message as our hearts are breaking with new case we see.
