You can also arrange appointments, order repeat prescriptions, contact any of the staff with questions and let us know about any concerns you have relating to your pets treatment.

Nurse Club of the Month – June 2019 – Rabbit Club

It is Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW) 1st to 9th June therefore to support this, our Nurse Club of the Month during June is RABBIT CLUB! 🐰
This year RAW are raising awareness around Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease 2 (RVHD2). RVHD2 is a new variant of RVHD1 and is often fatal.
Many rabbits in the UK are not vaccinated against this deadly disease and are therefore at risk. We are asking all rabbit owners to make sure that their rabbits are vaccinated against this and other fatal diseases.
If you have any queries or questions regarding your Bunnies Health, Welfare, Feeding, Vaccinations or General Care etc why not contact your closest Vetcare surgery and book a FREE Nurse Club Appointment. We even have a plan for Rabbits on our Vetcare Pet Health Plan Scheme – ask a member of staff for further details including the yearly savings on preventative treatment etc for your Rabbit.

Veterinary HPM Diet

For the optimal health of your pet we stock  Virbac Veterinary HPM Diets. In our opinion this food is better than any other pet food; nutritionally better, superiorly manufactured and amazing value for money. What you feed your pet is the most important thing that contributes to their health, beyond lifestyle and preventative health.You probably take a lot of care with what you eat – why not give the same consideration to your pets?

We have 10% discount on the HPM Range for all puppies, kittens and adult dogs and cats signed up on our Health Plan. Ask at reception.

We also stock the HPM range of prescription diets – carefully formulated to support specific conditions in dogs and cats – including kidney disease, arthritis and obesity.
