Do you ever wonder where to get advice you can trust regarding your pets? Where ever you look there will be someone giving you advice about everything for food to fleas. Who do you listen to and importantly who do you trust?

We all love our pets from the bottom of our hearts and want them to live forever. We all want the best for them.

I have been a vet at Albany Veterinary Hospital for almost 30 years and in that time I have been lucky enough to be involved with  many of your much loved pets. I have chosen to write a monthly blog to answer the most frequent questions that you have asked, reflect on Veterinary Practice life, to educate and build relationships and to ensure great veterinary care for our clients and their pets.

If you have something you would like to see written about or if you would like more information on a specific subject please email  Please note that I will endeavour to answer your questions here in the 'blog' but if you require urgent advice call the practice.

I personally say 'thank you' for reading our blog and hope that you find it informative, useful and entertaining.

Happy reading

Malcolm Webb

In this blog we're going to focus on the kidneys. Kidney disease, also call Renal disease, affects both cats and dogs (and exotic pets). This term is actually an umbrella term that can include a lot of different conditions such as Chronic Kidney Disease, Polycystic Kidney Disease or glomerulonephropathies to name a few. The most common form of the disease is Chronic Kidney Disease. Often considered an “old cat” disease. Don't be fooled though, there are many forms of disease that can occur at any time, in any species.

When most people think about behaviour, they go straight to the naughty things our pets do, mostly because those things are what annoys us and we want our pet to stop.
