Star Patient January 2017

Jade has a very special story, and her lovely owners agreed to allow us to publish it for her. Jade is one of those patients who was unfortunate enough to suffer a devastating condition, but through the wonders of modern medicine, imaging and surgery, and with the help of some magnificent, loving and patient owners, we are beginning to restore Jade to full health. Read on...will also highlight another story which might make you think seriously about Pet Insurance.Most people can afford the monthly outlay for Insurance, less can afford a several thousand pounds bill for advanced surgery.

It is amazing what a difference we can make with some of the most life threatening conditions. With some though, it needs both patience and understanding from the owners. More importantly any treatment plan we embark on must help our patients maintain an excellent quality of life.

Whenever we have an interesting or special case we will try and make then 'famous' by publishing their story on these pages. If you think your pet has had heroic treatment or surgery, or if you have another interesting tale to tell, then let us know

Backhome Microchips

From April 2016 it became 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. New puppies should come with chips, but if not we are here to help.

We can chip dogs, cats, rabbits, tortoises, larger birds - in fact most pets. So what are you waiting for - come and have your Backhome, Biotec Microchip fitted for only £12.50. Call to make an appointment with the Nurse or ask the Vet when you are next at the Surgery. It is a simple and relatively painless procedure that affords your much peace of mind.
