Haywards Heath Town Day Dog Show

Haywards Heath Town Day is scheduled for Saturday September 11th in Victoria Park. And we will be back in action with our fun dog show. It has been two years since our last opportunity to meet lots of local canine friends, and send as many as possible home with a lovely rosette. We cannot wait […]

Freedom Day – however……..

*Please note that this weeks column in the Mid Sussex times was sent to print prior to us deciding to carry on operating as we have been since the start of the pandemic. Since late March 2020 we have not allowed almost anyone other than team members into the Clinic. Our wonderful, patient pet owners […]

Dangers of PPE

Who would have thought twelve months ago that facemasks and restrictions would have become so much a part of our lives? There have been some benefits in my role. I would say that I am seeing far less road traffic collisions involving cats, for instance, thanks to the reduced amount of traffic. It is a […]

Best vets in West Sussex: thank you!

We have been bowled over with the most amazing news! Last month we heard that we were the recipients of an award. The winners of the Best UK Vet Award 2021 were revealed with The Mewes Vets, being named as the Best in County. The awards are organised by VetHelpDirect.com and were running for the […]

New Parasiticides

But we have two who are passionate and proud guinea pig owners themselves. In fact, our vet Ali and our vet […]

Jazzie saves the day again

Charlie, the gorgeous ginger and white thirteen year old cat, recently developed diabetes. He had been visibly declining. The weight had dropped off him and he had started using the toilet as his personal drinking trough, which was not normal at all. A simple blood test showed his kidneys were healthy and that the problem […]

The first ever national guinea pig awareness week

I truly dislike using a microscope. When I was a student, I had to learn. I spent many hours a week in my first few years at Vet School attempting to identify specific cells, and then specific illnesses, germs and parasites. But unfortunately, it always set off my motion sickness, making it hard to concentrate. […]

This Saturday 20th February is national love your pet day

Of course, at The Mewes every day is a love your pet day. But I am happy to have an extra special day announced by the RSPCA to celebrate the special bond between people and their pets. It gives us an excuse to show our pets how much they mean to us. One of our […]
