Nurse clinics

Our experienced staff members are able to give you lots of useful advice about your pet’s wellbeing and preventative health care.

Please telephone to make an appointment with a member of our nursing team to talk about any of the subjects below

Dental care

Dental care is extremely important and we would recommend that a dental care regime is started early in your pets life. We can show you the best ways and methods of protecting your pet’s teeth and can provide check-ups for older patients to see if their teeth are in good health. Dental problems that are left can be extremely uncomfortable and may require dental treatment under a general anaesthetic.

Weight management

Sometimes it is difficult to manage your pet’s weight. We can provide regular weight checks to discuss diets and help you keep track of their progress. We will discuss different ways to help reduce your pet’s weight. We offer a FREE weight management clinic attended by registered veterinary nurses. Please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment.

Geriatric checks

As our pets get older they may require more regular trips to the vets. Pets over the age of seven are classed as senior/geriatric. We can provide health checks for your pets where we can check a range of different functions and give your pet a top to tail exam. If we are concerned with any of our findings it will be discussed with you during the consultation and you may be referred to the veterinary surgeon.

Diabetic care

If your pet has been diagnosed with diabetes our staff are here to spend time with you discussing the aspects of living with a diabetic pet. We can provide demonstrations on how to give insulin, discuss your pet’s diet and give you advice on how to monitor your pet at home including the essential signs to look out for if something is not right.

Fleas and worming treatments

There are lots of different flea and worm treatments on the market and it can sometimes be quite confusing to know which ones to use, the time scales to use them and what each product is for. Giving your pet’s regular flea and worm treatment is both important for you, your pet and the environment. If you have difficulties giving worming tablet then our nurses can do that for you.

Puppies and kittens

Getting a new puppy or kitten can be a very exciting time. We want to help you give your pet the best start and provide advice to keep them happy and healthy. Whilst your new puppy or kitten is starting out we recommend that they visit the surgery often to help good socialisation. They should be weighed frequently to make sure they are growing at the correct rate. We can also discuss neutering, talk about and administer flea and worm treatment, demonstrate dental care and discuss behaviour.

Neutering

Bringing your pet in for neutering can be quite a daunting experience. We can give you advice and talk about the benefits. We can also go through what the procedure involves and discuss aftercare.

Rabbit care

Rabbits are increasingly popular pets. Our team can give you advice on many aspect of their care. We can discuss their housing, caring for indoor rabbits and litter training. We can also demonstrate how to correctly handle your bunny and check their teeth and nails. We can also help with diet and talk about preventative healthcare.
