We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our latest addition to our veterinary practice – a special dog sensory planter designed to enrich and stimulate our patients during their visits, or if they are just walking past.
A sensory garden incorporates various plants and elements that engage a dog’s senses, offering them a more enjoyable and calming experience during their time at the vet. By catering to dogs heightened senses of smell, sight, and touch we aim to make their time at the practice more enjoyable and less stressful.
Currently the planter features a mix of herbs including energising mint, calming lavender and refreshing lemon balm.
