We are soon 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.We also have a monthly credit scheme for those facing expensive treatments.

Nurse Club of the Month - February 2018 - Dental Club

Can you imagine what our mouths would be like if we never brushed our teeth?? Yuk! Well, as with humans, pets also need to have a good oral care regime. Thankfully, due to modern products, it isn’t always necessary to brush our pet’s teeth these days (great if Felix thinks he’s a tiger!!).

February is National Pet Dental Health Month (sponsored by AVMA).

At  our Dental Club our fully qualified and Registered Veterinary Nurses can talk you through all the options available for you and your pet and get you on track to pearly white teeth and lovely breath.

You’ll also receive a free goodie bag and a discount card. Don’t delay – book your appointment today!! Find out more about Dental Hygiene on our website too.

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.

Star Patient - February 2018

Loki (AKA The God of Mischief), is a weeny stray, who without the care of compassionate people, wouldn't perhaps be with us now. There is also a little story here about responsible pet ownership. We hope you like Loki's story......

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 Minichips

It is 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.

The BackHome bio-glass mini chips are suitable for use in many species such as dogs, cats, horses or even snakes.  The BackHome mini chip is a versatile and reliable option that causes minimal discomfort to the animal.

Just one application/implant for a lifetime of protection.  It's not just a microchip. BackHome is a complete service dedicated to keeping you and your pet together. BackHome provides lifelong registration on PETtrac, a reunification database that is dedicated to reuniting missing pets with their owners 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

So what are you waiting for - come and have your Backhome, Biotec Microchip fitted for only £12.50Call to make an appointment with the Nurse or ask the Vet when you are next at the Surgery.
