Behavioural Advice

Behavioural problems can be due to behavioural causes, medical causes, or both. Our veterinarians will investigate behavioural problems by obtaining a full history and conducting a full examination (sometimes your pet may require blood orurine tests to rule out underlying medical conditions) to accurately diagnose a problem. Behavioural problems are often the combined effect of […]

Boarding Advice

Going on holidays soon? Before considering whether to board your pet please check their vaccination records to make sure they have been vaccinated within the past 12 months. If your pet is due for a booster vaccination, make sure this is done well ahead of the boarding period. It is a good idea to contact […]

Clinical Pathology

Dentistry

Just like humans, pets’ teeth need looking after too! The health of their teeth and gums has a significant impact on their overall quality of life.

The microchip is embedded with a code unique to your pet and is the most effective form of permanent identification. […]

Nail Clipping

Regular nail clipping, or trimming, should be part of the routine care of your pet. It is essential for elderly and indoor pets, whereas outdoor pets may wear their nails down naturally. The requirement for nail trimming can vary depending on breed, age, level of exercise and the environment in which your pet is kept. […]

Nutritional Advice

Along with regular exercise and veterinary care, careful nutrition is the best way you can contribute to your pet’s prolonged good health. These are the basic nutrients every pet needs: Water is the most essential nutrient in any diet. Your pet’s body is made up of approximately 70% water and will quickly perish without it. […]
