Lovely Oscar went on his holidays to France and came back with an abscess under his foot due to an embedded grass seed!
Just after his second birthday party with his brothers and sisters we sedated him to examine and clip the fur around his feet and we found more than a dozen other grass seeds, as well as one in his ear canal.
In recent weeks at Vale Vets we have seen several grass seeds working their way into different dogs ears, feet & even eyes - ouch!!
Check your pets over thoroughly after walking them in grass in the summer, especially if they have long or curly fur.
We are fortunate at Vale Vets to have an amazing team of committed, talented and enthusuastic staff.
