Puppies are trained to become Super Dogs at Puppy Preschool, with Nurses Liz Wilson and Tara Carnall. Puppies learn how to to become an obedient family member, full of fun and mischief, but destructive habits discouraged. These lessons in life skills are there for a lifetime. Puppies from both Winmalee and Faulconbridge come to Winmalee for their lessons, and it an evening of fun and frolics for everyone. New puppy owners learn the basics of puppy training, and our nurse are always happy to answer questions on all aspects of puppy care.

Glaucoma2

Dr Russel checking Daisy's eye for glaucoma - Dr Russel is shown using the new tonometer, the very effective instrument used to measure the eye pressure in pets. All eye problems should be checked with the tonometer, as glaucoma can be very difficult to detect unless a tonometer is used. Daisy has already had to have one eye removed due to the pain and loss of vision caused by glaucoma. Daisy's remaining eye is also affected by glaucoma, so prevent further damage and pain, Daisy needs daily treatment, and regular checkups to ensure that the pressure inside the eye is controlled by the medication. PetFriends have the most effective equipment to check for glaucoma - this equipment is usually only available at specialist hospitals. The test is very quick, and does not upset the patient.
