With the nights getting lighter and the trees beginning to blossom, spring is a time for pet owners to cherish. That’s why we’ve compiled all the info you need to keep your pet safe from the hazards associated with this time of year, from chocolate eggs to nasty stings.

Last year we saw a 95% increase in pet emergencies during the Easter weekend*, so we always suggest making sure you’re prepared by taking down the details of your nearest Vets Now emergency clinic.

And if you need non-urgent veterinary advice from the comfort of your own home with expert advice and next steps, you can book your online video consultation today using Video Vets Now.
