A big HELLO from our NEW Veterinary Surgeon, Robin Stratton. Many of you will have met Robin when he acted as a locum Veterinary Surgeon during the summer months. Well, he liked the staff and clients at Vetcare so much we persuaded him to stay, and he became a full time Vet in the Practice at the end of October. Robin has many years experience in all aspects of small animal medicine and surgery, but he has a particular interest and expertise in Orthopaedics.

Nurse Club of the Month - DECEMBER 2014: DENTAL CLUB

Dental disease was the commonest cause of death of humans in Victorian times and nearly all dogs and cats over a certain age have tartar, halitosis, gingivitis or other forms of oral or periodontal disease. We check your pets' mouths every year when they come for their Annual Health Examinations but are offering a FREE CONSULTATION WITH THE VET anytime during DECEMBER to check them out.

Our Nurses also run a FREE DENTAL CLUB where they will teach you all you need to know about oral and dental hygiene and preventive treatments. Walk away with a FREE information pack, various free samples and, as a club member, receive 10% discount on all Preventive Health Treatments, including DENTAL HEALTH products, FLEA products, WORM products and LIFESTAGE DIETS, in fact everything except vaccines. 

Our Qualified Nurses run free clubs all year round:

  • Puppy, Kitten and Junior Clubs
  • Dental Club
  • Weight Club (Pet Fit Club)
  • Rabbit Club 
  • Senior Club (A popular 'well pet club')

A little tumour was bleeding and becoming more unsightly on the head of this chap, Shadow, it was also bothering him and his owners. But did he need a general anaesthetic for such a small growth? Well, no he didn't. CRYOSURGERY (Freezing with liquid nitrogen) is used for cases like this and for many other conditions that we know we can manage with simpler treatment plans. Read on...

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 let us know. Send their story with some photos. 


See our Competition Page to win prizes. Currently we are offering prizes to clients from each of our surgeries just for writing us a review or a short piece for our testimonials page. £25 credit to the lucky people drawn.
