Rugby & Management »
Rugby and Management Our practice manager recently returned from a rugby tour in Cape Town, where she got to play against the South African as part of the Nomads squad. We decided to ask her a few questions about her love of rugby and how it all started. Q. You've come a long way in a short time - how did you start playing rugby and who do you play for now? A. I've always had a passion for sport and before moving to the UK there was Aussie Rules. When I moved to London in 2002 I didn't think I would find a sport which could replace it, thankfully I was wrong. It was quite by accident that I started playing rugby union, but I haven't looked back. I joined London Welsh 7 years ago and made a move to Saracens 2 years ago. During the summer I play 7s for the Moody Cows.

If you couldn't attend on the day, and have wondered what you missed, we have a small video to highlight some of the day's entertainment. Hyde Park Veterinary Centre Dog Show 2012 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buU8lL4_H5s). Proceeds from the event go to the Mayhew Animal Home. This year we raised over £700 for the charity, well up on last year's effort. A massive thank-you to all those who made the day possible and to those who donated time and money to the event. "Thank-you so much for your support of The Mayhew at such a fantastic event!" The Mayhew Animal Home If you haven't already done so head to our Facebook page and have a look at the photos from the day. Hopefully they will be on the site soon, for now they can all be found at Facebook/HydeParkVet (http://www.facebook.com/hydeparkvet) A huge thank-you to Studio 1B (http://www.studio1b.co.uk/) who covered the event on film and put together the video. A great reminder of a great day.

The Complete Animal Unleashed »
The Complete Animal has officially been unleashed The Complete Animal L-R: Jeanette, Lynne, Annie, Janine, Martina and Mel Sunday the 27th of May saw the Hyde Park Veterinary Centre begin their fundraising efforts for the year. The clinic has decided that all team events entered for this year will be under the name 'The Complete Animal'. An alter ego for the members of the Hyde Park gang, but once a dream of Andrew's which involved calling the clinic this. Perhaps we should be happy for it to represent the people within the walls of the clinic and not the clinic itself?! In an effort to increase cancer awareness and raise money for Cancer Research UK, the girls ran 5km in Hyde Park. With temperatures souring to 29 degrees on the day, the team managed to finish in good spirits - albeit a little red-faced. To date, the target we set to raise £150 for the cause has been smashed and the team total is currently £536.36 plus Gift Aid. We must send out a big THANK YOU to all who have sponsored us and a special thank you to Davies Veterinary Specialists (http://www.veterinaryspecialists.co.uk/) who donated £250. It's not too late to donate, events like Race for Life are vital in funding Cancer Research UK's life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. By sponsoring us now you can help more people survive cancer. facebook (http://www.facebook.com/hydeparkvet) page. Enjoy!

Vets welcome launch of Davies London »
Vets welcome launch of Davies London Vets have welcomed the introduction of Davies London, the capital’s new private specialist veterinary practice based near Hyde Park. More than 60 attendees at the formal launch of the initiative last week showed enthusiasm for the increased choice and convenience that the new service provides. Davies London, a subsidiary of Davies Veterinary Specialists (DVS), Bedfordshire, is based at the premises of the centrally located Hyde Park Veterinary Centre on Connaught St W2. The new service conveniently allows clients to consult with a leading team of RCVS Recognised Specialists in the heart of London, thus avoiding the need to make the lengthy and sometimes stressful journey out to a distant referral centre.
Read All About It: Andrew Answers Questions for Sunday Times »
Read All About It: Andrew answers questions for the Sunday Times If you haven't already been following Andrew in the Sunday Times, it's best you rush out this weekend and grab yourself a copy! The Sunday Times now has a pet section amongst it's Home pages, and our very own Andrew Prentis writes for the Vet's Corner. Some of the questions answered to date include; Q. I am the proud owner of an English setter called Harvey. He is beautiful, charming and affectionate, with a great sense of humour, but the breed is in danger of dying out. How can we stop this? Joy Considine, by email A. What a good question! My great-grandfather was Tom Steadman, the celebrated breeder of the Mallwyd kennel of English setters around the turn of the 20th century. He had a multitude of show winners, including supreme champions at Crufts. One of the issues in the canine world now is that too few pedigree dogs are bred for their working abilities. The obsession with form over function has led to dozens of breeds and countless thousands of dogs being affected by inherited diseases. This animal-welfare issue has recently been highlighted by the BBC and is the subject of a dispute between the RSPCA and the Kennel Club. Rather than slavishly following fashion, where pets become accessories rather than necessities, let’s not forget some of the great old breeds. They were great for a reason.
