Open Day For Pet Awareness Week


At the end of National Pet Week, we held an Open Day on Saturday 6th May. Despite the wet weather, it went very well. Our Car Park was full, and you can't ask for much more than that!

We arranged a variety of demonstrations, displays and talks, aimed at increasing pet owner’s knowledge of how to improve their animal’s health and performance.

Hydrotherapy, chiropractic, massage, homeopathy were all demonstrated and discussed. Vav Simon, Clinical Director, had several dogs and a couple of ponies on hand to help her with this.

Modern hi-tech veterinary methods were also displayed, showing how these powerful new approaches can solve problems that other methods cannot. Roger Meacock, our specialist vet talked about the controversial ‘raw meaty bones’ diet, saying “modern pet food is such a poor diet that it actually increases the body’s vulnerability to illness”.

The Isle of Wight Dog Training Society put on displays of their ‘Good Citizen’ training programme and their agility training. Wight Wizards, now organising new flyball training, used their latest equipment to show how fast fit dogs can run!

Local Island manufacturer’s for raised dog feeders and a humane dog harness also demonstrated their products.

Several charities provided stalls, raising money for their causes. A raffle and collection box combined to raise £73.50 for charity. Leaflets listing the top ten tips for responsible pet ownership were handed out as part of the national campaign raising awareness on responsible pet ownership.
