Glaucoma In Dogs
Glaucoma occurs when the pressure inside the eye increases past normal. This happens because the normal drainage of fluid from within the eye is reduced.
Giardia And Your Dog
Dogs affected by Giardia can get nasty diarrhoea, as well as spreading the parasite to others – including us! Read our advice here.
Teaching our dogs that their resources are safe is important, as guarding behaviour can become aggressive and difficult to control if left unmanaged.
Fatty Lumps And Lipomas
Lipomas, or fatty lumps, are very common in dogs.While they are tumours, lipomas are just made up of fat cells and so are mostly completely benign.
Conker Hazards In Dogs
While many dogs ignore conkers on walks, some like to play with them or even try to eat them. Conkers can cause blockages or poisoning when ingested by dogs.
What To Do If Your Dog Is Incontinent
If your dog begins accidentally urinating where it shouldn't, find out if it is suffering from incontinence as bladder infections or USMI could be the cause.
