September is Animal Pain Awareness Month - see our News section for info on recognising pain in your pet

And they call it... Puppy Love

If anyone needed cheering up this week after Blue Monday (when unhappiness is at its peak after Christmas, so we are told), this should do it - a photo of vet Rebecca Verity with her gorgeous new puppy Percy, a miniature Dachshund. 

Percy is four weeks old, and came in to see us today with his mum Beryl. He will be staying with Beryl until he's old enough to go to his new home with Rebecca! Isn't he adorable?
