WEATHER WARNING FROM THE GSPCA - Hot Cars Kill Dogs & hot pavements damage feet

Submitted by Steve on 09:03, 7th Sep, 2021 | 0

With hot weather the GSPCA always receives calls and reports from the public that have seen dogs locked in cars, dogs being walked on hot pavements, animals in direct sunlight and we want to remind all pet owners of the real dangers to their pets.

With the warm weather and direct sunlight, dogs and other animals whether in cars or their pens are potentially in a situation where you could kill your pet if it is left, regardless of the situation.

Submitted by Steve on 14:53, 1st Sep, 2021 | 0

At the GSPCA we have offered microchipping for your cat, rabbit or dog for only £4.99 for nearly 10 years.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “The GSPCA helps over 1500 domestic animals every year and sadly only 80% of dogs and cats are microchipped meaning of the 200 stray dogs and 3-400 stray cats we help we struggle with many to quickly identify owners and some of the microchip details aren’t up to date.”

We would be delighted if any stalls or buskers would like to join us to help celebrate animals in Guernsey.


WARNING TO ALL RABBIT OWNERS – Diseases killing rabbits in Guernsey and advice

Submitted by Steve on 10:38, 1st Sep, 2021 | 0

The GSPCA is asking all rabbits to take great care as Rabbit Haemorraghic Viral Disease (RHVD2) variant 2 is being seen once again here in Guernsey and a surge of rabbits with myxomatosis are being seen with the large numbers of rabbits around Guernsey.

These fatal diseases are a huge risk to unvaccinated rabbits and especially to those in outside enclosures.

The GSPCA helps over 150 wild and domestic rabbits every year, although this year we have already had over 323 through our doors since the 1st January.

What is RHVD2?
