20th February is annually recognised as Love Your Pet Day and is a great reason to spend extra time and attention on our pets and to reflect on the special part they play in our lives.

This is 10 year old whippet Toby who was recently diagnosed with a cancerous lump and came to see us last week for reparative surgery. Here is gorgeous Toby post-op, ready and waiting for mum to arrive! Toby is an extra special patient as he is one of our furthest visitors, coming all the way from Gloucestershire – a 140 mile round trip – to see us! His mum used our new PetsApp facility (downloadable free from Google Play and the Apple App Store) for us to check his wound remotely post op and we’re delighted he’s doing really well. We know he will be extra pampered today!
