Dogs are one of the most popular domestic pets in the UK.
At Hillside Vets we have tried to provide you with helpful, informative guidance sheets on everything to do with your dog. Dogs like all other animals can’t tell us when something is wrong, so we hope these sheets will help you if you are uncertain about something.There are many different breeds of dog and each breed can have its own peculiarities; we are here to help and advise you.
We always recommend that when you get a lovely new puppy you book on to one of our puppy parties. These are huge amounts of fun for everyone (including us!) and a great place for socialisation for your new pup. We will also give you top tips to ensure you and your new puppy are best set up for a healthy and happy life together.
The type and breed of dog you choose is likely to have a big influence on the care it needs, so it's important to make sure that your dog is suitable for your lifestyle. We are always more than happy to discuss breeds and suitability with you before you even buy your puppy - just ask to speak to one of our qualified veterinary nurses.
As always, these guidance sheets are for information purposes and you should always seek veterinary advice if you are at all concerned about your dog.
Our guidance sheets are continually being added to, so please re-visit this page regularly for up-dates.
