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?

Star Patient June 2018

'Wookie' is one of many breeds that suffer from problems because of their design and anatomy. Fortunately there is a great deal we can do to make life changing positive differences to such breeds. Read on to find out what we did for Frenchy. 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.
