Services

We aim to provide a complete healthcare for your pet. Here’s a brief outline of all the services we can provide.

If you like to discuss any aspect of your pet’s care in more detail, please call us on 01463 711777.

  • Vaccination & pet passports
     
  • Nurse clinics & puppy parties
    Our main aim at Puppy Parties is to socialise your puppy from an early age. We cover topics such as house training, dental care, worming and neutering. the most important part is making sure your puppy has a good time and finds the whole experience fun. Please ask if  you would like more information.
  • Behavioural advice
     
  • Neutering
    As a practice we advise neutering as un-neutered animals can develop certain health and/or behavioural problems as they grow older. It also helps with unwanted pregnancies!
     
  • Microchipping (now a legal requirement as of 6th April 2016)

               Bpy and dog

     

  • Pet Dentistry
    A major part of pet ownership is dental care. This is often overlooked by many owners. Nurses are available to discuss dental care from toothbrushing to dental diets. We recommend regular dental checks as prevention is always better than cure!

    Senior Pet Clinics are run at the same time as your pet's booster and are for dogs over the age of 8 years and cats over the age of 9 years. It involves an extended consultation, examination and health questionnaire with a vet and a nurse. Blood tests and urine tests will be run to check for kidney disease, diabetes, liver damage, cholesterol and urinary tract disease. We also offer blood pressure testing for cats in the senior pet clinic. In this case the owners have the option of leaving their cat for a short time as this is best done when the cat is completely relaxed.
