Have you noticed your dog scratching a bit more than usual in Glasgow? This article covers the common reasons your dog might have itchy skin and some top tips from ourselves at Pets N Vets for providing relief.
If recent months in Glasgow meant you put your new pet plans on hold, you may now be starting to put the wheels in motion to extend your family and welcome a new member. Many people research reputable breeders or consider designer dogs based on celebrity social media profiles, however, considering adopting a rescue animal can be hugely rewarding.
As with any business, a vet practice such as ous in Glasgow needs a strong supporting team for the non-clinical business functions. The client care team will generally be the first and last port of call for pets and their owner. Depending on the size of the practice, this can include:
A patient care assistant works alongside and supports the whole practice team to achieve the highest standards of patient care. Under the direction and supervision of a veterinary surgeon or registered veterinary nurse (RVN) they will assist with monitoring of inpatients, infection control and handling animals safely for procedures such as injections, blood samples, bandage changes and nail clipping.
Spring is an exciting time for most of us, pets included! Lighter nights mean more opportunities for being outdoors. To ensure a happy and safe season for your animals, take a minute to make yourself aware of hidden dangers which could lead to a poorly pet.
Ask most veterinary practices and they will tell you that their Registered Veterinary Nurses (RVNs) are at the very heart of everything they do. Such is the respect for RVNs that a whole month is dedicated to celebrating their roles – Veterinary Nurse Awareness Month takes place every May and is recognised worldwide.
