Spring 2017

We hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather and having lots of fun with your pets - big or small. We really look forward to seeing you all during 2017. We have planned some great schemes in 2017 to help you with preventive health coupled with discounted treatment options. We have a new instalment scheme to assist with major treatments that are suddenly required which will be really helpful for uninsured pets.

We are also going to be launching all-inclusive packages for new kittens and puppies and a scheme with monthly instalments for all preventive health needs, twice annual health checks and discounts on neutering and other treatment requirements.

 In the meantime, please enjoy the wealth of information available on our website, and like us on Facebook to keep current with all that is happening at Vetcare. Our latest newsletter will be published soon so watch out for it and the wealth of information therein. 

You can now register online or make enquiries through this website. You can also arrange appointments and order repeat prescriptions. Don't forget, you can also contact any of our staff by email by following the links on our staff pages, they will be more than happy to assist with your pet's needs.

Nurse Club of the Month - May 2017: Dental Club

If only all cats would sit like this little one for their dental check! Nurse Club of the Month for May is Dental Club. All pets are welcome to come and it’s completely FREE OF CHARGE.
At your appointment our fully qualified and Registered Veterinary Nurses will check your pets mouth, gums, tongue, teeth and advise you on the best oral hygiene regime to suit both you and your pet. If they find a problem that they want the Veterinary Surgeon to look at they will ask them to have a look.

Learning how to maintain oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your pet and we have a whole range of products that will help.

Our Nurses run FREE clubs for pets all year round - weight club, puppy, kitten and junior clubs, senior pet clubs, diabetic clubs and monitoring clubs for pets on long term treatment for arthritis and diabetes. There is also a Rabbit and Small Furry Club!

To book an appointment for Dental Club, or any of our other nurse clubs please contact the surgery today! It will be great to bring your children along too if you have some; they too can play a part in helping maintain optimum health for your pet. We may also give them a little tour of the surgery.

Veterinary HPM Diet

For the optimal health of your dog, cat, puppy or kitten we stock the full 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?

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.

.Staff News

2017 has been a really busy year and we are recruiting two new Veterinary Surgeons to join the team and assist with the increased workload. In the meantime we have one or two long term locums; they are great people and exceptional Veterinary Surgeons.

Jessica Whitehead Holmes has relocated to the Sale Surgery and is completing the final part of her Veterinary Nurse Training there.

We have an additional Client Care Manager to join our evening team at Leigh - Pauline Ramsay, who started with us on 15th May. We also have a new Client Care Manager at Sale - Aleks Trzcinka, who starts with us on 30th May. We have employed a fabulous Student Veterinary Nurse at Leigh - Gemini Slater who started in April and is fitting into her new role excellently.

We are currently recruiting an additional full time RVN (Registered Veterinary Nurse) to join the Leigh Team.

All of our Veterinary Nurses are qualified and registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. Many practices don't ! 

Star Patient May 2017

Chester had a misadventure, and his lovely owners agreed to allow us to publish it for him. Chester is one of those patients who was unfortunate enough to suffer a potentially catastrophic condition, but with the help of our team of excellent Veterinary Surgeons, advanced imaging, medicine and surgery, we have managed to restore Chester to full health. Read on...this case might make you think seriously about Pet Insurance.Most people can afford the monthly outlay for Insurance, less can afford a large bill for treatment, hospitalisation, surgery annd aftercare.

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 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. You would be amazed to know how many pets we have managed to reunite with their owners during the last few years.
