Our nurse clinics cover various aspects of pet health, this can include routine pet care, information and advice on weight, nutrition and dental care. The clinics are by appointment only and are held by our team of veterinary nurses. This is an opportunity to talk about any of the more routine pet care concerns with our veterinary team.
Routine pet care
Veterinary nurse advice is available by appointment only at all three surgeries . There may be a small charge for some services:
Checking for fleas and ticks
Bandage and dressing changes
We recommend that your pet has routine dental checks every 6 months with our vets. As preventative dental care our veterinary nurses can demonstrate procedures such as tooth brushing and discuss enzymatic toothpastes, dental supplements, as well as toys and chews that can be used to encourage dental health.
From time to time rabbits or guinea pigs can grow very long teeth that need to be trimmed by a one of our vets this enables them to eat properly and remain in peak condition. Although our nurses are unable to perform the procedure they are able to advise you on how diet can help promote dental health.
Weight & nutrition
We encourage clients to bring their pets in for regular free weight checks. No apppointment is required - just pop into the surgery, weigh your pet on the scales and inform the receptionist of your pets current weight. This can then be updated on our system so our team can monitor any changes in weights. Clinic appointments are always available if you would like to discuss the weight and nutritional requirements of your pet . Our nurses will advise you on condition scoring your pets current weight and discuss the optimum weight your pet should be. We are always happy to discuss your pets current feeding habits and advise on what type of food your pet should be eating. Being overweight increases the risk of health conditions developing these can include arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and breathing difficulties.
