Puppy and Kitten Checks
A new addition to the family is a very exciting time, but there can be an overwhelming amount to think about!
Book in with one of our lovely nurses for a chat about worming, flea treatment, insurance, neutering, toilet training, microchipping, socialisation and behavioural training.
When your new pet is around 5 months old, this is the perfect time to bring them back in to see the nurse as you may have more questions that you didn’t think of at the puppy/kitten chat.
During our adolescent check, a nurse can discuss neutering with you, along with other adolescent issues such as changing onto an adult diet, behaviour, and flea and worming treatments.
If your pet is older, this is a perfect time to talk to the nurses to see if neutering is the best option for your pet, as well as the pros and cons of the operation.
Senior Pet Clinic
Like us our pets will feel the signs of aging. We are very lucky that now there are many things that will help them to not only prolong their lives but improve their quality of life as well.
Cats from 7 years old, large dogs from 5 years old and small dogs from 8 years old will benefit from our senior pet clinic.
Our nurses will check the early signs of aging such as mobility and their teeth. They can advise on small changes that may help to keep your pet fit and healthy. Your pets long-term health is our first priority so if we are concerned about anything we will refer you onto a vet.
There are also optional extra’s available such as a pre ga blood test to check the kidney/liver. These can be discussed during the appointment and if they are necessary can be booked in.
It is estimated that 40% of dogs and 25% of cats in the UK are overweight! If you think your pet is too fat, you may want to consider our free weight clinic.
A nurse will weigh and body condition score your pet, and then calculate a target weight and devise a plan for your pet to shift those pounds!
Weight clinics are not just for weight loss, we can also help if you think your pet is underweight or you just want to keep an eye on your pets weight.
Dental Care Clinic
Going to the dentist is no fun for anyone and this is the same for our pets. By the age of 2 it has been shown that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some sign of dental disease.
If you want advice on how to minimise the amount of dental work you pet has to have over their lifetime then the dental care clinic is for you.
The nurse will not only show you how to brush their teeth they will also talk you through the different products available and diets that may help your pet. They can also give great advice as simple as using a carrot as a treat.
Having a diabetic pet can be a scary thing especially when it is first diagnosed. Our nurses our always here to help you learn to live with their condition.
They can give you advice on diet, exercise and insulin as well as the warning signs to look out for if your pet is not stable.
Many animals hate fireworks and at certain times of the year they can become increasingly stressed. There are different options available to them and this clinic is here so you can get advice on what the best option for your pet may be.
This clinic is available year round as the options all take differing lengths of time to work.
If your cat, dog, rabbit or guinea pig has overgrown nails, you can book in for a nail clip appointment with one of our nurses. Some animals have a real phobia of having their nails clipped, but our experienced nurses will take the time to help keep your pet calm.
Flea and Worming Treatments
If you struggle to administer a flea or worming treatment to your pet yourself, you can book in for one of our nurses to administer them for you.
"Pets that hate Vets"
We are a bit like marmite to some of our lovely clients and some pets are nervous to come see us. This is the perfect clinic for those pets that get stressed coming to visit.
This clinic is different from the rest as it involves more of the staff and less of the procedures…
Your pet will come in for fusses and treats to make the experience of coming to the vets a more pleasant one and once they are comfortable with us we will start getting them used to the things a vet may do to them at a pace they are happy with. This can include playing with their paws and ears so that when a vet examines them it is not such a shock.
