Hot hedgehogs!

Donview Automated

During this lovely weather please have a think of the wildlife that may appear in your garden. A shallow bowl of water can save a wee hedgehog from becoming dehydrated. 🦔☀️

This hedgehog is not dancing! He’s suffering from dehydration, causing an unsteady, weak walk. Please put a shallow dish of water out for animals to enjoy, it is so important in such hot dry weather! Note that dehydrated hogs can be found at any time of the year and in any weather, as illness or injury can also result in dehydration. Always pick up and find help as soon as possible for a hedgehog like this, or any out in the daytime that are small, and or sleepy/slow moving, they will need specialist treatment.

FREE CANINE HEART HEALTH CHECKS IN MARCH!

Donview Practice News

Our staff are all partaking in the British Heart Foundation sponsored Dechox in March! So we thought it would be good to offer our canine friends free heart checks. Of course our Vets would also check out everything as well at the same time for you! Heart failure is fairly common in dogs, but if picked up early there is a lot we can do these days. If you are concerned about your dog in anyway, the signs to look out for regarding heart disease are – less able to exercise, coughing, sometimes breathing faster, wheezing etc.

Call us on 01467621429 (Inverurie) or 01467 634803 (Kintore) now to book your dog in.

Also if you would like to sponsor our Dechox, heres our just giving page!

Introducing our quiet room!

Donview

We have just completed our quiet room! We wanted to have a room in our Inverurie branch away from our main consulting rooms where people can have the time, space and comfort to say goodbye to their pets when the time comes. Also to allow owners to visit their pets when they are hospitalised and undergoing treatment. The difficult time when we have to break bad news was something we also wanted to do in a comfortable environment where people would have the time and space they need.

Our quiet room won’t be used for normal appointments so owners can spend as long as they wish in the room with their pets. Comfortable soft furnishings and lighting make it feel less clinical; more of a homely feel.

It’s important to us that at the most difficult times owners can be given the time and space they need and the quiet room will provide this.

Thanks to our nurses for the excellent idea they had of setting up the quiet room for everyone!

We love cats at Donview Vets!

Donview Practice News

We understand that cats get easily stressed when visiting the vets so we have a cat only waiting area and a cat only ward at our Inverurie practice! Jennifer our head nurse is a feline specialist and works hard to make sure all our feline friends are as happy as we can make them when they are in!

A few of our vets have interests in feline medicine so you can be sure they will get the best care at Donview!
