Best wishes to all those families with children starting or returning to school this month. It has been a gorgeous summer and the warm months have kept us really busy at Vetcare. Welcome to Autumn!

We are here for you whether your are coming to see us for the best preventive health advice around, or if your beloved pets have a problems we can help with. You can also contact any of our staff with queries through this website. We look forward to seeing you soon.

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.

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 for all pets, which will include a great discount package. We also have a monthly credit scheme to help spread costs.

 You can now register online or make enquiries through this website. You can also arrange appointments and order repeat prescriptions.

Nurse Club of the Month - September 2018 - Dental Club

Book a FREE appointment to see one of our Registered Veterinary Nurses and learn everything there is to know about offering the best oral and dental hygiene advice for your pet. General anaesthetic for Dental descaling, polishing and other dental work, is one of the most common procedures, and most of this can be avoided if you follow a dental hygiene plan with your pet.

We will show you how to clean your pet's teeth, and when brushing isn't easy there are many other options available to help remove plaque, prevent tartar build up and stop the development of periodontal disease. You will come away with a booklet, freebies and all the information you need. Children are welcome too.

Our Clubs offer a great opportunity to further develop your relationship with the Practice.  Our Nurses are always there to offer you advice whenever it is needed.

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 Breeders Club. 

Veterinary HPM Diet

For the optimal health of your dog, cat, puppy or kitten we stock the full Virbac Veterinary HPM Diets.

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?

Star Patient September 2018

Chester is gorgeous little man who came to see Veterinary Surgeons, Chad Northcott and Naomi Parker. He was in a tremendous amount of pain and that made him very difficult to examine to see exactly where the sore part was!

We treated his pain but in the beginning didn't know what was wrong. As well as being in pain he was starting to become poorly too. He also found it difficult to toilet and his mummy and we became increasingly concerned, so we decided to do more tests.

It turned out, eventually, that his pain was coming from somewhere deep inside his body. Read his story to find out how we managed to get to the bottom of Chester's little problem and what we have been doing 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?
