Flea and Tick Prevention Season 2014



A time bomb that's ticking - Dealing with ticks.



Ticks are benefiting from climate change, posing a threat to both human and animal health. We are informing all of our clients what you can do to protect both your dog and yourself.



It is widely reported that tick numbers are increasing. The apparent changes in seasons are also favouring the spread of ticks that were previously only found in warmer parts of the continent towards northern Europe and the UK. As well as being unpleasant for you and your dog they can also be involved in the transmission of some diseases.


Please click on the Services & Products button above to learn more about Flea and Ticks and our products to help prevent them.



We are very proud to announce that all four of our Practices have freshly received accreditation under the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon's Practice Standards Scheme.

Through setting standards and carrying out regular inspections, the Scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care

So, this means that you can be even more sure that we are committed to providing the absolute best care for your Pets
