Nurse clinics

Ginger kitten

Our experienced nurses are available to offer advice about your pet’s wellbeing and preventative health care. Our qualified nurses offer additional services and support for both sick and healthy patients.

Nurse clinics are available daily, please call for an appointment.

Our nurse services include:

Puppy and kitten checks

We want to help you to give your pets the best start and provide advice to keep them happy and healthy. Whilst your new puppy or kitten is starting out we recommend coming to see the one of the nurses regularly until your new pet is about six months old. Coming into the vet practice regularly will help with early socialisation which is important to later behaviour.

Fleas and worming treatments

Giving your pets regular flea and worm treatment is both important for you, your pet and the environment. We can advise on the best products to use for each individual. We can demonstrate administration or administer treatments in the consulting room.

Nail clipping and grooming

Our nurses can keep your pets paws in good shape with nail clipping. Minor grooming procedures eg ear epilation or knot removing can also be done with a nurse appointment.

Anal sac expression

Our nurses will help your pet feel more comfortable by emptying anal sacs. Any infections or unusual bottoms are referred to the vet for further treatment

Dental checks

Dental health is important to general wellbeing and we would recommend that a dental care routine is started early in your pets life. We can show you the best ways of protecting your pet’s teeth and can check older patients to see if their teeth are in good shape.

Weight management clinics

Managing your pet’s weight can sometimes be challenging. We can provide regular weight checks to monitor and support your pet.

Geriatric checks

Our nurses can provide health checks for your pets where they can give a top to tail exam looking for any signs of potential problems. If we are concerned with any of our findings we will refer on to a vet.

Blood pressure checks

Many older pets, or those with long term illness, can suffer from high blood pressure and require medication and monitoring. Our qualified nurses can provide a regular monitoring service for older pets and those on medication.

Blood sampling

Qualified nurses may take blood samples if recommended by a vet. We recommend regular blood samples for all older animals and those on certain medications.

Diabetic care

If your pet has been diagnosed with diabetes the qualified nurses will give you helpful advice about living with a diabetic pet. We provide demonstrations on insulin administration discuss diet and give advice on how to monitor your pet at home.

Rabbit care

Rabbits are increasingly popular pets and the nurses can give you advice on many aspect of their care. We can also demonstrate how to correctly handle your bunny and check their teeth and nails. We can also help with diet and talk about preventative healthcare.
