Wonderful Vet's. David has a lovely kind and caring manner. It's so easy to make appointments too using their online website. There's also an app so you can easily contact the vet about any worries or concerns. A must download. Their Best Buddy Unlimited Care Plan covers unlimited free consultations and lots more. Look it up!! The best vets by miles. Thank you Stellar Vets for all you do for my 4 cats. I wouldn't go anywhere else now.

David and his team have been brilliant, he’s seen 3 of my dogs and I couldn’t wish for anyone better to look after them. Diagnosis and treatments were very professional and all the care received from the team was outstanding. I found the App very useful for messaging the practice and getting in touch. I highly recommend stellar vets and their wonderful team.

Our dogs are part of the family and an important part at that, so it's really reassuring that they are also part of Stellar Vets family too. Very happy indeed!!!

Took my little dog for the first time and, what a fantastic vet. He explained very succintly what was happening. I am so happy I left my previous vet for here. I now know my Dottie will see the same Vet every visit and they will build a rapport. Thank you all very much. I visited David with my new puppy Dora (03/10/22) fantastic experience again. He is amazing explaining what all her shot's are for and offering advice. If you are looking for a kind, friendly, informative vet practice look no further. I cannot highly reccommend this practice enough. Thank you all.

"Tyson had been a problem for some time. To be honest we, as a family, were getting to the end of our tether. It looked like we would have to give up Tyson . David was very open with us and said that Tyson's journey would be long and would require an immense amount of hard work on our part. He stressed that we had to commit and do all the exercises that he set for us. We really did not want to give up Tyson so we agreed to do what ever it took. Well three months later and yes a lot of hard work, Tyson is a new dog. We are all so happy. Thank you Dr. Dave"

Let's find a home for Persia, For further details - and for those of other cats looking for their forever homes - please contact adoption@worthingcatwelfaretrust.org Persia was a happy, friendly cat who loved her home until her family's circumstances sadly changed and she refused to come indoors. She opted to live in the garden and when she came to us, she was suffering from a chest infection but is now fully recovered. Persia is now seeking a quiet, adult-only home where she can flourish and enjoy life as she did before. As she celebrated her 12th birthday in August, she qualifies for our Golden Oldie support scheme - Golden Oldies – Worthing Cat Welfare Trust For further details - and for those of other cats looking for their forever homes - please contact adoption@worthingcatwelfaretrust.org

Let's find a home for Judah !

For further details - and for those of other cats looking for their forever homes - please contact adoption@worthingcatwelfaretrust.org

Judah is an easy-going, happy cat who is very friendly and playful.



Aged five, he has been undergoing treatment while in Worthing Cat Welfare Trust’s care, and is now back to a healthy weight, with a lovely coat that needs regular grooming.

Judah should be fine with children, aged 8 plus, or even with younger ones if they’re calm and have experience of cats.

He needs to be the only pet in the household.

Common Poisons in Dogs. Just last week we lost a dog that we strongly suspect had been poisoned by rat bait. Lots of things are toxic to dogs, however the toxicities we see in practice reflect those toxins that are around the home and are readily accessible. The most common we see are 1. Chocolate poisoning. - Very common around Easter and Christmas. Dark Chocolate worse than milk. White chocolate hardly an issue at all. Some chocolates designed for diabetics contain Xylitol ( see later) which is a double whammy. 2. Ibuprofen - dogs are very sensitive to this non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Renal failure, liver failure, vomiting, diarrhoea, seizuring and death all being symptoms depending on the doses ingested. 3. Xylitol is used as a sweetener in foods , including some peanut butter, and confectionery, especially chewing gum. It is also known as (E967). It causes rapid hypoglycaemia ( low

Following up on our post about rabbit behaviours and husbandry. We said that rabbits are generally happier living in groups. But introducing two rabbits together is not always plain sailing. A pair of rabbits can fight, even to the death! So what can we do? The latest evidence from the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund is as follows. They recommend that both/all the rabbits are neutered. Male - Female pair seems to be the easiest to form and least likely to break down. This is the best pairing. Mixed groups are the next most successful to form happy bonds. ie 3 or more. Female - Female pairs are less likely to be successful than mixed groups. Finally Male - Male pairs are the most likely to have trouble bonding. They are 5.4 times more likely, than a male - female pairing, to have a bond break down. It should be

Let's find a home for Smokey and Bandit. For further details - and for those of other cats who are ready for adoption - please contact adoption@worthingcatwelfaretrust.org Smokey and Bandit - We are looking for caring owners for these two beautiful black cats, who need to find a loving home together. Smokey and her sister, Bandit, are just two years old and need kindness and continuity in order to flourish and build their confidence. They are both affectionate cats but a little nervous - Smokey more so than Bandit. They should be fine to live with other cats, as they came from a multiple-cat household, and also with children aged 12, or over.

Great pictures of a femoral head excision op. Unfortunately this poor cat had been hit by a car and had a dislocated hip that would not relocate. A femoral head excision op removes the “ball” of the ball and socket joint and relieves all the pain. The remaining muscles stabilise the joint. The procedure was very successful and the cat is doing well and already using her leg like nothing had happened.
