Lost and found
We appreciate it can be a very distressing time when a pet goes missing. We offer the following advice to try and reunite you and your pet.
When losing a cat, we advise you to check in all the local garages, garden sheds etc. as they can easily be locked in without the owners knowing.
For both dogs and cats we recommend you contact the local RSPCA, Cats Protection, police station, dog warden, local newspaper and veterinary practices to advise them you have lost a pet and to check if they have any matching the description. You can also make up posters and place these in the local vicinity.
Should you find a stray pet, ask around the local area to check it does not live locally. We advise you bring it to the surgery se we can check to see if it has an identichip. Unfortunately we do not have the facilities to keep them at the surgery but suggest you contact the local RSPCA, Cats Protection, police station, dog warden and local newspaper.
We are able to post lost/found pets on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
We strongly recommend microchipping. Microchipping your pet is quick and cheap to perform and is the best way of reuniting a lost pet with its owner. Tweed House Vets offers a microchipping service. Contact us for further details.
