Recent Cases

There have been a spate of recent cases of gastro-enteritis in the summer

of 2015.  No pathogens have been identified specifically in these cases, but many have needed hospitalisation and intravenous fluids.  Fortunately, all have gone on to make a full recovery!

 

 

We would like to remind dog owners of the dangers of letting their pets drink from standing or still water in late summer.  Algal poisoning is not common but very serious!

 

We remain on the alert for cases of Alabama Rot, (also known as New Forest Disease or Sandringham Disease).  Fortunately very rare, but we have seen one case in the last 12 months.

Wellness Clinics

 

From March 2019, we are starting to run Wellness Clinics with nursing staff at our Shipston site for Cats and Dogs over 8. These are to check for hidden problems in older patients.  Finding problems early is the key to health in old age.

We are delighted to welcome Corina to join our practice as Veterinary Assistant. Corina has moved from Romania and already speaks english very well.  She is a caring and conscientious vet who is enjoying working with our friendly team! 

 

Jill Snape

 

Jill, our practice manager, was involved in a nasty car accident in October 2018 and is convalescing steadily. We have received many good wishes for her recovery and pass these on to her with our own good wishes.  We hope it will not be too many months before she can get back to the job that she loves!

 

Stephanie Hughes

 

Steph has decided she wants a change of scenery and hopes to advance her career into referral practice, finishing at SVC before Christmas 2018.  We wish her very well for the future.

 

Alex Pounder

 

We are delighted to welcome Alex to SVC from August 2018.  Alex qualified in 2017 and has been working in Devon.  He relishes the opportunities that working in a small and caring surgery offers.

 

Martin Foster

 

Martin decided in 2017 that he wanted to reduce to working a two day week as a prelude to leaving SVC after more than three decades.  As of August 2018 he has now left the practice to pursue his other interests of music-making, canoeing and music festival attendance!  We wish him very well for the future.
