February 2020

Winter is well and truly here and we hope you and your pets have been safe during the current stormy season. Remember to watch those bare feet on icy ground (or snow if it comes) and keep them dry!

Earlier this year we launched our all-inclusive Pet Care Plan for Dogs, Cats, Puppies, Kittens and Rabbits, with monthly instalments for all preventive health needs for all pets, and a great set of discounts on services and products. Watch this website for information or contact us to find out more. Hundreds of people have already signed up and their pets are enjoying comprehensive preventive health with huge savings.

We are here for you whether your are coming to see us for the best preventive health advice around, or to help you with any problems.  You can now register online or make enquiries through this website. 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 – February- Puppy Club

Having a new dog takes time and commitment; not just now but for several years. Offering them the best start in life is essential for children ……. and of course puppies! A relationship with us could make so much difference to this. Our Nurse led Puppy Clubs will help you undertstand everything you need to know for those early months and will ensure you get all you need to offer your new family member a healthy and happy start.

Nurse Club appointments are FREE and we can help you guide you and your pet to a healthier 2020. Contact your Surgery to book! We also run Clubs for Kittens, Junior and Senior Pets, Rabbits and Small Furries, then other bespoke Clubs for overweight, diabetic or arthritic patients. Our Nurses can also provide advice on vaccinations, worming, flea and tick prevention, grooming and shampooing, dental hygiene, training and behaviour, exercise regimes, neutering, microchipping, first-aid and Insurance.

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, urinary tract problems, arthritis, gastrointestinal problems, pancreatitis, obesity, skin conditions and animals recovering from surgery. An holistic approach to dealing with any illness is important, and central to this is appropriate nutrition.

Staff News

A huge welcome to our new Student Veterinary Nurse at Leigh, Connor Burton. Connor lives with his fiancé (also a Student VN) and owns a hamster and a budgie. He has worked with animals for 6 years. He has passed all of his written examinations and is joining us to complete his practical training; hoping to qualify later this year.  Connor is a big fan of films (especially if they have superheroes) and also loves anything to do with animals, motorbikes or computers.

Please see our Vacancies page for employment opportunities.

Did you know that we are accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). Find out what that means for you and your pet. In addition our Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Nurses undertake regular continuing professional development activities that far exceed the mandatory amounts specified by the RCVS.

Star Patient

This month’s Star Patient, Summer, has probably been to see us more than most patients during the course of the latter part of 2019, and into 2020, and we hope she will continue to do so for a long time to come. Have a look to see how loved she is by her super owners and how much we have been able to help her recover from and cope with her multiple problems.

Advances in Veterinary Medicine means that we can often offer your pets the same level of investigations and treatments as are offered in Human Medicine and we have explored options to the fullest with lovable Summer.

Most cases that we see are interesting and in many we manage to save or extend lives. We like to choose a case each month to tell you about. If you have a pet that you would like to be a ‘Star’ contact us. 

Backhome Minichips

It is compulsory for all dogs to be fitted with a microchip. There are many good reasons to have this done – to help you find your lost pet, prove that they are yours and for the Pet Travel Scheme.

The BackHome bio-glass mini chips are suitable for use in many species such as dogs, cats, horses or even snakes. They are a versatile and reliable option that causes minimal discomfort to the animal. Just one application/implant for a lifetime of protection. BackHome provides lifelong registration on PETtrac, a reunification database that is dedicated to reuniting missing pets with their owners 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

So what are you waiting for – come and have your Backhome, Biotec Microchip fitted for only £12.50Call to make an appointment with the Nurse or ask the Vet when you are next at the Surgery.
