We’ll have a raffle, tombola, refreshments, home made goodies for you to buy, a plant stall so you can stock up on your hanging baskets etc.

Lynn Byfield, Hart District Council’s Dog Warden will be talking about Dogs and the law and she’ll also be offering a free micro chipping service for dogs on the day.

Don’t let Lungworm kill your dog!

Please be aware of Lungworm, it’s a killer that many of you won’t necessarily have heard of. It is spreading fast in the UK and many dogs have already died from it. Don’t panic however as Lungworm is very easy to prevent and equally if diagnosed early it can be treated very successfully too. Late diagnosis of Lungworm does not always have a happy ending however.

The following link will take you to a Lungworm Information site. For preventative treatment of lungworm you will need to contact your vet. Treatment/prevention of  Lungworm is by prescription medication only.
