Nurse clinics


Our qualified nursing team run their own clinics alongside the Veterinary Surgeons. This is also based on an appointment system, you can book in to see the nurse for:

  • Nail clipping
  • Anal glands
  • Tick removal
  • Weigh and flea/worm appointments
  • Blood sampling
  • Bandaging
  • Microchipping
  • Training and behavioural advice
  • Weight clinics and dietary advice
  • Post-operative checks or suture removals
  • Diabetic clinics
  • Adolescent pet health checks
  • Dental and oral hygiene advice
  • Administering medication (if prescribed by the Veterinary Surgeon)

The nursing team 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 the attending Veterinary Surgeon for a consultation - which will incur a fee.


Free Weight Clinics

Our nurses run weight management clinics and can help design fully customised diet plans for a variety of patients, structured for either loosing, gaining or maintaining their current weight. Following an initial consultation, we will design a diet and lifestyle programme 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 goals, this is particularly important if your animal is suffering from a specific condition where the diet is an essential part of their treatment.


Free 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. Dental disease can cause a range of problems - from bad breath and tartar build-up, to periodontal disease or kidney and heart problems. Prevention is better than cure and we firmly believe in trying to identify potential oral hygiene problems before they occur and cause signs of major illness.

These services are offered entirely free of charge.

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.
