Consultations

Consultations with our vets and nurses can be for routine check ups or arranged for a specific new or ongoing health concerns. Consultations are by appointment only.

Nobody expects an emergency; thankfully we have vets available to help, any time of the day or night via our Out of Hours service providers.

We can perform lab work such as blood tests and imaging such as ultrasound and x-rays in practice that will help us diagnose more complex conditions.

Dentistry

Our trained vets and nurses can perform a full dental check, identifying any dental disease, its severity and making a recommendation for treatment. We have the facilities to perform dental procedures on-site.

Microchipping

Microchips allow your pet to be identified if it gets lost and is a legal requirement for some pets. We can microchip your pet quickly and safely using a special needle.

Neutering

Performed by our vets, neutering is a routine surgical procedure which removes a pet’s ovaries or testicl*s, so they are no longer able to breed.

Blood Pressure Checks

We can quickly and easily take your pet’s blood pressure to check for hypertension (high blood pressure); this is recommended in all pets over 8 years old.

Six-Month Health Checks

A six-month health check assesses your pet’s overall wellbeing including their weight, dental hygiene, grooming, behaviour, and any need for parasite control. It ensures your pet is healthy and can provide preventative treatment.

Our veterinary nurses are not stylists but can provide some grooming services to make sure your pets are comfortable such as removing matts and nail clipping.

Pet Travel Documentation

We have qualified Official Veterinarians who can provide you with the essential documents needed to travel abroad with your pet including Animal Health Certificates.

Anal Sac Expression

We can empty your dog’s anal sac if they become impacted, inflamed or infected. Often, this can be manually done by a nurse but sometimes will require additional treatment.

Puppy parties are run by our nursing team, and they facilitate positive socialisation experiences with other dogs and people. Whilst the puppies play, you will receive lots of useful information and will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Home Visits

If circ*mstances mean you are unable to visit our practice, our vets and nurses can provide veterinary care to your pet at your home.
