Domestic Pets:

We are not just here for the bad times, we are here for the good times, in fact we are here at all times.

Cats, dogs and other domestic animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs form a large percentage of the patients seen at the surgery. Not all of the pets visiting require treatment. Sometimes they come to be weighed, for dietary advice, for flea treatments, or just for a biscuit!

All animals receive a clinical examination at their yearly vaccinations. This not only gives the clinician the chance to spot potential problems before symptoms are shown, but also gives the opportunity to allow owners to ask any questions regarding their pets feeding, behaviour etc.

Puppy Courses
Our puppy parties are highly regarded and their reputation is growing. The courses are run by Mandy Tyrrell, our Head Nurse, who has been running them for over 16 years. Over the 6 weeks she covers various topics including; toilet training, handling, recall training, nutrition and first aid. Mandy also includes information on general, well being preventative care, neutering, fleas, wormers, pet passports, insurance and micochipping etc. The course is great fun and children are actively encouraged to come along with their new pet.

Laproscopic Spays - Key-Hole Surgery
Laproscopic spays are an alternative choice. It does involve shaving a larger area and three small incisions, however, it is less invasive and has a faster recovery time. There are no stitches to be removed and therefore no need for a buster collar. Most pets are up and running around after three days. It is not suitable for all dogs but we are very happy to discuss this option with you.

Free Nurse Clinics:

Our nurses are available every day to offer help and advice and we run various clinics to help owners.

Weight Clinics (The Chunky Club)
Just like weight watchers we offer encouragement and guidance. Losing weight is never easy but an overweight pet is more predisposed to diabetes, osteoarthritis and skin problems. Regular weight checks and body scores in a friendly environment can allow your pet to reach its target weight in a controlled and achievable way.

Diabetes Clinics
Diabetic cases are frequently not straight forward. We offer regular checks with nurses who have experience of diabetic pets. Questions can be answered and advice given on how to control the condition.


Senior Pet Clinics (The Crinkly Club)
All pets age differently, just like humans. Some reach old age faster than others. Frequently owners are unaware that some of the signs they may see their pet presenting are actually a sign of a medical problem caused by old age. Many of these conditions are treatable and can give your pet a new lease of life.
