Nurse Club of the Month - July 2018 - Puppy Club

Whilst puppies are very cute and cuddly, they unfortunately don’t come with an instruction manual! That’s where our Veterinary Nurses come in....we offer FREE consultations with our fully qualified and registered Veterinary Nurses  to discuss  all aspects of puppy husbandry to help you through the first 6 months. You’ll also receive a 10% discount card off preventative health products as well as lots of other goodies. To book your appointment, simply get in touch today!

Find out all about preventive health, navigating the range of processed food, identification chips, the Pets Travel Scheme, Puppy first aid, behaviour, dental hygiene, neutering and lots more. Its also an excellent opportunity for your puppy to get used to coming to see us and having a lot of fuss made. We want all puppies (and their Mum's and Dad's) to enjoy their trips to the vets and this is a good place to start. Children are more than welcome.

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, a Dental Club and an Arthritis/Pain Management Club.

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.

Star Patient July 2018

'Chisleay' is one of a number of breeds that commonly suffer from osteoarthritis. Fortunately there is a great deal we can do to make life changing positive differences. Many pets can suffer from osteoarthritis, some from a really early age. Many people think arthritis only affects older pets.

The signs of arthritis can be a lot more than just lameness or stiffness getting up. For example reduced exercise tolerance, decreased activity, grumpiness or other behavioural changes and reduced grooming in cats. Read on to find out more about what is available to help relieve pain in your dogs and cats. 

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.
