Nurse Clinics – Our nurses are an excellent source of advice and education to help you care for your pets and pick up on any signs of disease early. They provide clinics for weight management, post-operative care, disease monitoring, dental care, senior pet care, puppy and kitten care, firework phobia or behavioural issues as well as general clinics for claw clipping, anal gland expression or worming and flea advice and administration. Our nurses are all either RCVS Registered Nurses or student nurses working towards qualification. Most clinics are free of charge.
Some of the clinics are listed in more detail below so you know what to expect.
Weight Clinics The aim of this clinic is to provide you with a real chance of significant weight loss for your pet. At the first consultation, the nurse will assess your pet by taking weight measurements and decide on the best route to positive weight loss, setting a goal weight and target date. Regular recording of progress and fine tuning of the diet plan, will assist your pet in reaching his or her target weight. Remember an estimated 50% of our cats and dogs today are clinically obese, so you are not alone!
Socialisation for puppies 9 - 14 weeks - for full details of this important socialisation period for your new puppy.
