We wish you a very Happy New Year and hope 2019 brings you all that wish for and need. We also wish you and your pets the best of health and hope that you enjoy each others company to the utmost. Our relationships with our pets really are special.

We have recently invested in updating laboratory equipment at all four Vetcare surgeries so we can now run a whole range of tests within minutes, to help us achieve rapid diagnosis and resolve your pet's problems as expediently as possible.

Early this year we are going to be launching all-inclusive packages for new kittens and puppies and a scheme with monthly instalments for all preventive health needs for all pets, which will include a great discount package. We also have a monthly credit scheme to help spread costs of major treatments.

We are here for you whether your are coming to see us for the best preventive health advice around, or to help you with any problems.  You can now register online or make enquiries through this website. You can also arrange appointments, order repeat prescriptions or contact any of the staff with questions. 

Nurse Club of the Month - January 2019 - Weight Club

It’s that time of year when many of us start our ‘New Year’ diets, but have you thought that this may be a good time to look at 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. Being overweight puts extra pressure on all of your pet’s joints and organs, this in turn will lead to them not living life to the full.

We run a FREE WEIGHT CLUB 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.To book your FREE appointment, please contact the surgery today and we can get your pet on the road to a healthier and happier future.

Children are welcome at our Nurse Clubs and it is a great opportunity for them to learn more. The clubs also offer an excellent opportunity for our Nurses to develop their relationships with you and your pets. Our Nurses run many clubs - for Puppies and Kittens, Junior and Senior Pets, Overweight Pets, Small Furries and Rabbits. There is also a Diabetes Club, a Dental Club, an Arthritis/Pain Management Club and a Sound Phobia (Scary Sounds) Club.

Star Patient January 2019

Oscar is a great chap who, in his later years, was brought by his lovely owners because he had started with seizures. This was unusual in itself for an older dog, and we were initially worried what might be causing the seizures, so we sent him for an MRI scan.

We were then astonished by what we on to see what great use we make of various imaging tools and how we discovered what else was up with Oscar and what we were able to do to help him.

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?

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.
