Got some questions about your pet’s health, or want to know more about a specific topic? Our nurse clinics can help you out
Pets are undoubtedly a loving and valuable addition to any family, but every animal is different. Occasionally you might have some questions about your pet’s healthcare, or maybe some observations that you’d like to discuss. For this reason we hold regular nurse clinics in practice.
These clinics are completely free for you to attend, and cover a range of topics from parasite treatment to dental checks, and even dietary advice too.
Your pet will grow and develop very rapidly in their first few months of life. For this reason, we offer a free puppy/kitten & parent club which enables you to meet with one of our qualified nurses every month until your pet reaches the age of 6 months.
This is an ideal opportunity for you to discuss any aspect of your pet’s healthcare with our team, including:-
- Feeding regimes, and the best type of diet for your pet
- Flea and worming control
- Behavioural problems or training methods.
On the other end of the spectrum, when your pet reaches 7 years of age they will typically be more susceptible to certain conditions or problems that can develop in their ‘senior years’.
At this stage your pet will be able to have another complimentary consultation with one of our nurse team, specifically designed to assess your pet for early signs of any problems. We will evaluate their typical lifestyle and behaviour patterns, look at any changes in their daily activities and address any concerns you might have.
Occasionally we may also consider it necessary to carry out additional blood screening for conditions like arthritis, kidney disease and diabetes. One in ten senior pets who appear well on the outside show abnormalities in blood screening, and the earlier problems are detected the more easily they can be treated or managed. You will always be kept informed if this is the case for your pet, and we will confirm with you before starting any testing or treatment.
