‘Hands On Cumnock’ Community Event

We’re pleased to be part of the ‘Hands On Cumnock’ event that’s being held in the town this coming Saturday, 27th April. We’ll be having an open morning between 11a.m – 1p.m. (not 12-2 as advertised on the leaflet).

Crossriggs Information Evenings

Our first aid course was extremely popular and was enjoyed by all who attended. We then continued with an evening on managing arthritis, again run by Agatha with the help of our nursing team. This was also very well received by those who attended and we will be putting together a programme of further events for 2019.

The first information evening of 2019 was held on 30th January and was all about taking the stress out of giving pills/drops/spot on treatments to your pet at home. This evening was really well attended and we would like to thank everyone who came out on a rather snowy evening.

Our next open evening was all about poisons and we enjoyed seeing around a dozen clients for a really interesting talk and a cuppa! Agatha has produced an information booklet on this topic and all of the above – please just pick one up in practice if you missed the talk.

Here’s some further info on things to keep your pets away from at this time of year:

Comic Relief 2019

We held a sponsored ‘spin-a-thon’ to raise money for Comic Relief 2019. We cycled 200 miles on the day, raising a whopping £235! Thank you to every one of our clients who supported us on the day.

Virtual Practice Tours

In addition to ‘Meet the team Mondays’, Beth has been working hard on putting together a series of virtual tours on our Facebook page, called ‘Practice Tour Tuesdays’. You can also find these here.

Greenmill Primary School Visit

Agatha and Jennifer visited the Primary 6 class at Greenmill to talk about genetics. The young people all had fun sorting out hereditary colours of labrador puppies!

Community talk

Agatha’s been a busy bee lately! She and Beth went to a local hospital at the end of March to talk about keeping chickens. We do see chickens at the surgery and our vets are happy to advise on caring for poultry.

Puppy Party

Puppy Playgroup is for puppies who have been fully vaccinated and are aged 14-20 weeks old. The first few months of your puppy’s life are very important for both socialisation and habituation. Our nurses are on hand to answer any questions and provide information on development, basic training and healthcare for your puppy in a safe and positive environment.
Please call us to book a place for you puppy as spaces are limited.
