Two-year-old Rumple was presented to the hospital with severe pulmonary stenosis.

Vets and paediatricians treat Havanese with severe pulmonary stenosis

Veterinary surgeons and paediatricians in the US have joined forces to save a dog with a life-threatening heart condition. The collaboration is thought to be the first of its kind in veterinary medicine.

Two-year-old Rumple, a Havanese weighing around 14 pounds, was presented to the University of Florida (UF) Small Animal Hospital with severe pulmonary stenosis.  

Cardiologists at the hospital usually treat around 10-15 dogs a year with the condition, but on this occasion their standard approach did not work.

Rabbit Awareness Week set to return this summer

News Story 1
 Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW) is returning this summer, running from 24-28 June 2024. The theme for this year will be 'Healthy Diet, Happy Bunnies'.

The focus on rabbits' diet comes after the most recent PDSA Animal Wellbeing (PAW) Report report revealed that 42 per cent of veterinary professionals identified inappropriate diet as one of the five most important rabbit welfare issues that need to be address.

The campaign will include veterinary blogs, videos, and digital waiting room resources. Practices can sign up to receive updates about RAW.

CVS Group hit by cyber attack

CVS Group, which owns more than 450 veterinary practices in the UK, has been hit by a cyber attack.

In a statement, the group said the incident involved unauthorised external access to a limited number of its IT systems. As soon as the attack was discovered, the group took its IT systems temporarily offline, causing 'considerable operational disruption'.

It has warned that the security steps taken and ongoing plans to move its operational systems and IT infrastructure to the Cloud are likely to have an ongoing impact over a number of weeks.

Due to the risk that personal information was accessed, CVS has informed the Information Commissioner's Office. The company is working with third party consultants to investigate the incident.
