The Nurses are not able to prescribe certain medications. If your pet is seen by a nurse and they feel he/she requires treatment, you will be referred to a Vet for a consultation.

Free Weight Clinics:

Our nurses run weight management clinics and can help design fully customised diet plans for a variety of patients, whether that is loosing, gaining or maintaining the weight. Following an initial consultation we will design a diet and lifestyle program for your pet and arrange follow up consultations allowing us to track their progress. We can also discuss prescription diets to help your pet meet their aims, this is particularly important if your pet is suffering from a specific condition where the diet is an essential part of their treatment. This service is offered entirely free of charge.

Free of charge dental checks:

Nearly all animals suffer from dental disease at some stage of their life. It is one of the most common health problems that we diagnose in pets that come to see us! Dental disease can cause a range of problems, from simple “bad breath” at one end, to periodontal disease or kidney/heart problems at the other. Also a lot of dental disease will also cause pain or discomfort and yet many animals will “suffer in silence”.

Prevention is better than cure and we firmly believe in trying to identify potential problems before they occur, avoiding what appears to be minor issues can result in major illness and so it is better to have a healthy diet plan or a regular “scale and polish” than wait several years and then require a much larger amount of work doing.

It is worth noting that many insurance companies now require regular dental and weight checks, which can be combined with your pet's annual booster vaccination, to ensure your pet remains within the cover of their policy.
