Our Routine Services
Only the best for your pets
We offer a wide range of services, some of which are listed below, but if you are in any doubts, please get in touch.
Consultation by appointment
If you have a preferred member of staff, please let us know when making an appointment.
However, if you would prefer a home visit then please call us and we will do our best to accommodate you at an appropriate time.
Late Night Appointments
We offer some late night appointments throughout the week with consultations available till 9.30pm where possible.
These appointments are available for your pet’s routine and preventative health needs, including vaccinations and nail clips etc, as well as for those unforeseen illnesses that always seem to occur at inconvenient times.
Puppy and Kitten Clinics
Our nurses can help put your new friends at ease and get to know them too. We know how exciting introducing a new pet into your family can be, and how important it is to give them the best start in life. For this reason we have puppy, kitten and rabbit packs which ensure your new family member has the best start possible, whilst saving you money!
We also offer vaccination against herpes virus for all pregnant or breeding bitches. We can also vaccinate your pets against Rabies and Leishmania where appropriate.
Microchips can be inserted during a consultation or operation easily and quickly, and they are registered to a central data base at the time of being inserted.
It is compulsory for all dogs in the UK to be microchipped before they are 8 weeks old.
Animal Health Certificates
Ultrasound Facilities – Ultrasounds are another important investigative tool for many surgical and medical conditions in animals. Their use ranges from the diagnosis of pregnancy in bitches, to the investigation of heart disease in dogs, cats and rabbits – with many others in between.
Endoscopy Facilities – Endoscopy allows us to put a small camera into your pets stomach, intestinal tract, or respiratory tract to help us investigate disease or remove things they shouldn’t have eaten! We can also look down ears, up noses and at the back of throats using this piece of invaluable equipment.
Microscope – We also have a microscope which plays a critical part in dermatological and many other examinations, along with other smaller more specialised pieces of equipment which allow us to perform urine tests etc on site. For some, more specialised, tests it may be necessary to send samples to a dedicated animal laboratory
In house blood testing facilities – We have a laboratory area giving us the ability to perform blood tests on site – results can be available in as little as 15 minutes. This can be invaluable both during routine procedures, and if your pet should be taken ill.
We have dedicated dog, cat and rabbit/small animal kennels, which means species can kept separated. This helps reduce stress levels in any inpatients.
Our kennel rooms are all air conditioned.
Our cat room can accommodate up to 11 patients at any one time. We have dimmable lighting in this room which allows us to modify light levels, important during recovery of anaesthetics, when cats are poorly, or overnight. This room is in a separate part of our building to our dog room which ensures we keep our patients as relaxed as possible whilst with us.
Our dog room can accommodate up to 14 patients at any one time, and we are able to accommodate dogs of varying sizes easily. In 2015 we built 2 fantastic, spacious, walk in kennels for our really large patients. Our dog room has its own air-conditioning unit which allows us to control the climate easily.
Our rabbit room can accommodate up to 6 patients at any one time, in rabbit friendly cages. We have dimmable lighting in this room which allows us to modify light levels, we find this extremely important when looking after our rabbit patients. This room is in a separate part of our building to our dog room, and is separate to our cat room. This ensures that our rabbit patients are really relaxed during their stays with us.
