Vet recommended preventative healthcare for pets:
Vaccinations & boosters
Keeping up to date with vital vaccinations and boosters can help to protect your pet from harmful and life-threatening diseases. Parvovirus in dogs, feline leukaemia and Rabbit VHD are potentially devastating yet preventable diseases. Don’t risk your pet’s life. Ask us about Vaccinating annually.
Flea and worm treatments
Your pet’s lifestyle can determine which parasites they are most at risk and, generally, it’s important to protect them from as many as possible. Our team can talk to you about the best flea and worm treatments for your pet, your family and your home so give us a call.
One of the best things you can do for your pet is to bring them in for regular check-ups every 6 to 12 months. As pets age faster than humans, a lot can happen in a shorter period of time and a thorough health check by a vet can help to spot any issues early. Book a health check today.
Neutering not only helps to control the growing population of unwanted pets, but comes with many health and behavioural benefits too. Neutering is a surgical procedure, but a fairly quick one that will be carried out by our expert veterinary team. Find out more about neutering your pet. We can also discuss ‘chemical neutering’ when that is required.
We believe keeping your pet’s teeth and gums healthy should form part of their regular preventative healthcare routine. We can recommend products that are beneficial to pet dental health, show you how to brush your dog or cat’s teeth at home, and carry out professional dental treatment when it’s needed.
Sometimes you can’t prevent your pet from going missing, but what you can do is make sure it’s as easy as possible to be reunited with them. It is also a legal requirement for all dogs. Microchipping is a quick and harmless procedure that can be carried out on dogs, cats, rabbits and some small pets. Book a microchipping appointment
Some pets are skilled at keeping their growing nails trim but from time to time they too need a little help with grooming. Book an appointment with our nursing team and they can clip your pet’s nails. This service is particularly helpful for nervous pets.
