Seasonal Advice – Keep your dogs away from Acorns (from the Oak Tree) & Conkers (from the Horse Chestnut Tree)

Conkers: Signs of poisoning usually appear within one to six hours.

Clinical signs are drooling, excessive drinking, vomiting, diarrhoea and abdominal pain, difficulty breathing.

Acorns: Acorns are highly toxic for pets and can easily be eaten.

They are most dangerous before they ripen, when they are still green. Signs include vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite and lethargy.

Speak to us immediately should you have any worries about either of these.

Thank you to my lovely vet Katy Dodson for popping your head in reception when you were running late to tell me not to worry. You knew exactly how panicked I was feeling waiting for those results x

And thank you for being extra daft and putting a colourful dressing on both nooks back paws (he’d licked a stitch out) just so he can look like a 80’s disco diva 😂😂😂 – you are the best vet ever, wouldn’t trust my babies with anyone else.
