This clinic is available to anyone who has a dog or cat coming in for their second vaccination after already having the first vaccination with a veterinary surgeon. Your pet will be given a general health and weight check and advice will be given on the following topics;
Puppy and kitten checks
All new puppies and kittens to the clinic are entitled to a free full check up to ensure that you are giving your pet the very best care right from the start. During this check you will be given information specific to your pets vaccination, worming, dietary requirement, micro chipping and neutering. We also offer behavioural advice. You will also be entitled to a free wormer and frontline pipette.
Nearly 1 in 5 pets in the UK are now thought to be clinically overweight. Obesity affects the general health of pets, as well as predisposing animals to diseases such as diabetes and arthritis. Practical and realistic advice is given to help your pet get into the ideal condition. Once a suitable feeding regime and diet is worked out, we encourage regular clinics to have your pet weighed and to discuss your pets progress.
New pet clinics
This clinic is provided to any new owner that has registered with us. It provides advice on all aspects of the care of your new pet whatever their age. The nurse will give your new addition a health and weight check and be able to answer any general questions you might have.
The technique of implanting and identifying animals by a computer chip, is a clever and lifelong method of retrieving your lost pet. The procedure involves a simple injection and can be done from the age of 8 weeks. No general anaesthetic or sedations are required for the implantation of a microchip and should cause no more discomfort than a standard vaccination. Having a microchip implanted is quick, simple and very cost effective. It will give you the peace of mind that, if your pet does become lost, you will have more chance of being reunited faster. You may also avoid the possibility of your pet being rehomed or kept in a shelter.
Dental hygiene is very important for animals. 70% of dogs and cats have some form of dental disease which, if left untreated, can cause problems for the heart, liver and kidneys. During a dental check your pet will have a thorough examination of its mouth including its teeth, gums and tongue. You will also receive dental care advice appropriate for your pet. There are many ways to look after your pets teeth including suitable toys, chews, diet and teeth cleaning.
Senior Well Pet clinic
A free consultation with the nurse for cats and dogs over eight years of age. This will enable you to understand the changes in your pets lifestyle once they have reached the age of eight or more.
At this age it becomes more important to maintain regular health checks to help detect any potential problems at an early stage and to ensure your pets quality of life.
A FREE urine analysis will also be performed.
This clinic is aimed at dogs between the age of 6-18 months. At this clinic advice will be given on preventative health care, neutering, micro chipping and diets. You may also find that your pet, at this age, may be showing behavioural changes that may be challenging to resolve and therefore we can offer helpful tips to try and correct this behaviour.
Healthy Hopper clinics
This clinic is for rabbits of any age to come along and have a general health and weight check. The topics of discussion are husbandry, dietary, neutering, handling and companionship.
Healthy hopper evenings will also take place every 4 months which will give you, your children and rabbit the opportunity to take part in a fun evening. We will be offering health checks, FREE nail clips, one to one advice and a group talk on general rabbit care and handling with a question and answer session. There will also be fun and games for the children and goodies to take home.
Administration of Worming Tablets
This clinic is intended for anybody who struggles to give worming tablets to their pets. Cats are often the most difficult but some dogs can be a handful also. As well as administering the worming tablet, the nurse will give your pet a general health and weight check.
This is a specialist clinic offered to clients whose animals would benefit from physiotherapy to hasten their recovery after surgery or to improve their general mobility and movement. The clinic is carried out by one of our qualified veterinary nurses Gemma Harvey Bsc RVN. During the consultation your animal will be thoroughly assessed and a individual care plan formulated based on your animals specific needs most of which will be carried out at home from the guidance notes with periodic checks at the surgery.
