Weight management clinics
These specialist weight clinics give advice on the best way to tackle any issues, whether your pet is underweight or overweight. Obesity is an increasing problem in our pets and can lead to, or worsen, many health problems such as arthritis, diabetes and heart conditions.
We know managing our pets’ weight can be challenging, so we provide regular weight checks and discuss different ways to help reduce or maintain your pet’s weight, such as exercise.
Post-operative care clinic
Following veterinary procedures involving a general anaesthetic or sedation, your pet will need a post-operative nurse clinic with lots of TLC. These clinics are your reassurance that:
- Wounds are healing correctly.
- Stitches have been removed safely and dressings changed correctly.
- Any dental work, especially extractions, are looking good.
- In overall terms, your pet has recovered well from the procedure.
We’ll also talk to you about any aftercare you can do, such as preventative care following veterinary dental work.
Post-op checks are included in the cost of all routine operations.
Fleas, ticks and worming treatments
Prevention is definitely cheaper than cure when it comes to flea, tick and worm treatments. But there are so many different brands that do different things and often need to be administered differently. Which one is right for your pet and how often do you need to use them?
In our specialist clinics, we’ll talk you through all the options and demonstrate the cheap, easy way to remove ticks should your pet ever get one.
Giving your pet regular flea and worm treatment is important for you, your pet and the environment. Get some expert advice today.
Puppies and kittens clubs
At these clinics, a dedicated nurse will go through everything you need to know about preventative health care and diet advice. You’ll also get some invaluable advice about getting through those first, nerve-wracking weeks!
Kitten and puppies club
Getting a new puppy or kitten can be a very exciting time and we are here to help. To give them the best start and help keep them happy and healthy, we keep an eye on their weight, discuss neutering, talk about and administer flea and worm treatment, get them socialised by coming into the vet practice, demonstrate dental care and discuss behaviour.
Puppy socialising parties
Essential to your puppy’s successful integration into the larger pack outside your home. He or she can meet other pups and get used to strangers. There are also talks on behaviour, diet, neutering and basic first aid, among other topics.
- Find out more about these essential parties, available after your pup’s first vaccination.
Qualified nurses may take blood samples if recommended by a vet. We recommend regular blood samples for all older animals and those on certain medications.
Some pets may need their nails trimmed if they are not wearing down normally. This can be done by our nurses.
