Nurse Club of the Month - January 2018 - Weight Club

Well it’s that time of year when many of us start our ‘New Year, New Me’ diets, but have you thought that this may be a good time to address your pets weight and health? Over half of all the pets in the UK are overweight or obese and the problem is on the rise.

We run a FREE WEIGHT CLUB here at Vetcare and we have had amazing results with the patients that we see. Clients often comment that their pets have a new lease of life once they have shed the extra pounds.

Our Nurses run a series of Clubs - for new Puppies and Kittens, Junior Pets, Senior Pets, Overweight Pets, Small Furries, Rabbits. Also a Breeders Club for those embarking on the joys of parenthood, a Diabetes Club, and an Arthritis/Pain Management Club. All our nurse led Clubs are FREE OF CHARGE. Contact us to arrange an appointment.

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?

We have SPECIAL OFFERS on the HPM Range for new Kittens and Puppies, and for adult Pets. Speak with any of our staff for more information. 

Staff News

We had an exceptionally busy 2017 and 2018 is likely to be no different. We have recruited two Veterinary Surgeons on to the team. Dr Madalina Candea (right) joins us on the 15th January, and Dr Naomi Parker joins the Practice on January 29th. We are really excited to have them on board and know they are looking forward to meeting you. Madalina will be predominantly at the Leigh Surgery, although she will occasionally appear elsewhere. Naomi will be consulting both at Sale and Leigh.

Outside work Madalina is an exceptional tennis player. Naomi, apart from keeping fit, is an accomplished chorister. Watch this space to see Naomi too.

In the meantime we have one or two of our regular long term locums plugging some gaps. They are great people and exceptional Veterinary Surgeons.  

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

Star Patient - January 2018 - coming soon

Our January Star Patient Page is just being put together. Come back in the next couple of days.

We see many patients - some with avoidable conditions, some with easy to treat problems and others that require more major investigation and invasive treatment to cure them.

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 and let us know. High quality images will be really useful too.

Your story doesn't just need to involve veterinary cases - we are also interested in other tales - who have you rescued and why? How has a pet helped you and your family?

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.

Our fabulous mini-chips are amongst the best available - safe, durable and much easier and less painful to place.

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.
