Medical issues such as obesity have a direct impact on how a dog feels and therefore how he or she behaves. Overweight dogs tire easily and can even be grumpy due to fatigue or aches and pains which are a direct result of excess weight. Joint pain is common in obese dogs and this can lead to pain induced aggression.
We were delighted to support Professor Noel Fitzpatrick’s Vet Festival for the third year running at Loseley Park last weekend. Over 1400 delegates attended this innovative and fun CPD (Continuing Professional Development) event for Vets, Vet Nurses and K9 professionals. The educational streams and speakers were world class and left our acting MD, Michelle Machin-Jefferies LLB (Hons.), wishing she could retrain as a vet!
