Routine Health Care
We strongly believe that routine preventative health care is one of the most important aspects of responsible pet ownership and it starts from the day you bring your new pet home.
Here at the surgery we can help by advising you on the timing of different treatments and their application.
The most important ones to start with are:
For adult animals
- Annual vaccinations
- Worming tablets every 3 months
- Flea treatment (with tick prevention) every 4 weeks
-Primary course of 2 vaccinations
-Worming : every 2 weeks until 3 months old
every month until 6 months old
every 3 months from then onwards
-Flea treatments: every 4 weeks from the time they go outside (care: some products are not safe for young animals, always check the label!)
Please see the links below for further information on preventative health care.
Routine Surgery and Procedures
We cater for most routine surgery and procedures including:
-Neutering for cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs.
-Dental procedures (scale and polish, x-rays, extractions)
-Ear cleaning under anaesthetic
We also have an in-house laboratory. This enables us to perform the following investigations:
-Routine blood work
-Bacterial identification on skin swabs, ear swabs and urine samples.
We have a 24 hour emergency service that is staffed by our own vets here at the practice.
We can deal with most medical and surgical cases here at the surgery. There are however times where the nature of your pet's illness of injuries go beyond our expertise. In these cases we will work with you to try and find the best option, this may involve referral to a specialist center for further treatment.
