***UPDATED**** We have had no further cases of this reported to the practice which is great news. An owner has managed to obtain a sample of the substance concerned and this will be passed onto the police for their follow-up.

We need to make clients aware of some possible toxic substances in the Lees area at the moment. We do not have any specific details other than having seen some animals presented in the past few days, collapsing for no reason and having been previously well. Our best advise is to keep a close eye on dogs when walking and, particularly if they scavenge a lot, maybe to keep them on a lead. Obviously we will update this information regularly and will be contacting the local authorities. In the meantime (and again NOT to cause any undue panic or distress) please could you share this information with dog owners. Let’s all be the people our pets want us to be. Thanks.

Please be alert
