A very merry Festive Season to all our furry clients and their owners. We hope you have a really excellent holiday time and look forward to seeing you on your next trip into the Practice. This time of year is for family and celebration but remember safety for your pets over Christmas. Our Christmas Newsletter is full of tips and offers to help you at this time of year.It also gives us an excellent opportunity to thank you all for the custom you have given us.
Also remember that many pets have severe anxiety reactions to some sounds, to the extent that our Veterinary Nurses have started a new Club for you to fetch your pets to - the SCARY SOUNDS CLUB. Be assured that there is much they can do to help. This is particularly relevant around New Years Eve when people are letting off fireworks again. Contact your nearest Vetcare branch to make an appointment or discuss further.
Our Autumn Newsletter is still available - find out the latest practice news, the range of special offers we have available and learn all about our new Veterinary Hyperpremium (HPM) diet range for dogs and cats. Also learn about the latest innovations in preventive health, for worming and flea control.
You can now register online or make enquiries through this website. You can also arrange appointments and order repeat prescriptions too.

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?
Veterinary HPM costs about 20% less per day to feed than the best diets sold in Pet Shops and we have a great LOYALTY SCHEME - for every 5 bags purchased get the 6th same sized bag of the same diet FREE OF CHARGE. And for new Puppies and Kittens - Buy your first bag (400g bag for kittens and 1.5 kg or 3 kg bag for puppies) - and receive your second same sized bag FREE OF CHARGE
The entire range comes with a palatability guarantee. Make a FREE appointment to see one of our Registered Veterinary Nurses to find out more.

They weren't painful or causing Ben any problem, so the owners were shocked to find out that Ben had a high grade form of cancer. Without treatment we wouldn't have long with Ben, but his story is happier than that.
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
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.

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.
