Small Animal Practice

 

Home visits

 

Home visits are available during normal opening hours. Please be aware that if your pet is ill and requires treatment, or in an emergency situation, a home visit is not advised and you will be asked to bring your pet to the surgery. This allows the vet full access to drugs, equipment, facilities and trained staff to properly treat your pet.

Please telephone the practice if you require a home visit.

 

Nurse clinics

 

As part of our commitment to your pet’s care we offer FREE nurse clinics to our clients. These cover a wide range of areas and some examples are given below. Please do note however that the law does not allow your veterinary nurse to diagnose illnesses or medical conditions. Therefore if you think your pet is ill, please book an appointment with one of our vets. You are welcome to telephone the surgery and speak to a nurse for advice if you are unsure.

Examples of nurse clinics:

Pet passports

 

The pet passport scheme now allows you to take your dog or cat abroad to certain countries and then return to this country without your pet having to spend time in quarantine. For full details of the pet passport scheme, including to which countries it applies, please look at the DEFRA website (www.defra.gov.uk).
 
In order that your pet can be eligible for the pet passport scheme certain veterinary requirements must be met.
 

Please contact the practice for further information.

 

Do you need a vet?

 

Sometimes it can be difficult to decide if your pet needs to see a vet. If you are unsure if your pet requires veterinary attention then please telephone the surgery and ask to speak to a nurse for advice. If your call is outside normal opening hours then you will be able to leave a message for the duty vet to contact you.
 
In some cases you may be able to see a nurse in the free nurse clinic who will then decide if vet attention is required.
 
We would much rather you spoke to us early if your pet is unwell, rather than leave it until the condition has deteriorated. We are also happy to set your mind at rest if you do not need to see the vet.
