VETS!!! BE AWARE . . .
A case of Alabama Rot has been diagnosed in Northern Ireland. This is a devastating disease so your dog-owning clients may well be concerned. Please be ready to advise them of symptoms. Though the syndrome is not fully understood, an environmental link may be implicated therefore possible preventative measures such as rinsing dogs after a muddy/woodland walk may be helpful. Alabama Rot is still thankfully very rare and prompt action, ideally before renal symptoms occur, improves the chances of a successful outcome therefore be vigilant for any unexplained cuts/skin lesions, particularly on the legs and lower body.
With such highly sought after speakers as Adrian Boswood and Dan Brockman, how could it be anything but a success! A good turnout of vets from all over Northern Ireland came along to hear the two presentations. They also had the opportunity to take part in some practical human CPR training on the day too.
This event also saw the AVSPNI charity draw come to a close with Michael Woodside from Clare Vets winning the HeartSine defibrillator which was very kindly donated by HeartSine. All funds have been raised in aid of Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke and the Freeman Heart and Lung Transplant Association.

Vet Support Northern Ireland supporters can come to your practice/place of work and deliver hints and tips on stress management to your team.
A visit can be booked by contacting email@example.com and can be scheduled for a time to suit yourselves but it’s a beneficial topic for a spot of lunchtime learning for the whole team.
What we do…As this is a voluntary support network it is outside the capabilities of the volunteers to provide an emergency service and we encourage everyone to be continually aware of the availability of Vetlife a charity who provides a 24/7 phone and email helpline.
