Weight Management Clinics
These specialist weight clinics give advise on the best way to tackle any issues, whether your pet is underweight or overweight. Obesity is an increasing problem in our pets and can lead to, or worsen, many health problems such as arthritis, diabetes and heart condition.
Senior pet clinics
It’s natural that, just like us, pets face more health risks as they age, so as our animals get older its wise to have regular health checks.
We’ll give your pet a proper “top to tail” examination, looking for but not limited to early signs of kidney/liver disease, arthritis, dental disease, tumours and monitoring of blood pressure. Your pets long-term well-being is our first priority, so, if we are concerned with any of our findings, we will refer you to one of our vets. Just like us, the sooner we detect any problems, the more we can do to help.

If you’re learning to live with a pet who has recently been diagnosed with diabetes you’ll benefit from our continuous professional help and support. At our diabetic clinics, we will tell you all you need to know about diet and exercise and show you how to give insulin to your pet. We’ll also teach you how to monitor your pet and manage their condition, as well as how to recognise the warning signs when something is wrong. Managing diabetic patients can be time consuming and difficult but you are not alone – we are always here to help!
Puppy socialising parties
Essential to your puppy’s successful integration into the larger social pack outside your home. He or she can meet other pups and get used to strangers. We will also discuss puppy behaviour, diet, neutering and basic first aid, amongst other topics.
Find out more about these essential parties on our Facebook page or by telephoning our practice on 01642 760313.
We understand that a veterinary practice can be a scary, intimidating place for some pets. In an attempt to improve this we provide positive association sessions for you and your pet. We can discuss behaviour outside vs inside the practice as well as potential triggers for your pet. These are free of charge as we never want any pet to feel uncomfortable here.
