Be prepared for firework season!

Firework season is almost here and our pets often find the fireworks very stressful.
We are currently running FREE Firework Clinics with our veterinary nurses. The nurse will be able to give you advice about how to help your pet feel calm and safe during the fireworks. Advice will include short term coping strategies and medication options available, as well as long term therapies for pets with severe firework phobias.

So be prepared and ring the surgery to book your

FREE Firework clinic.

As you may or may not know, there is currently a supply issue with Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease vaccinations for rabbits. We have been able to source a limited number of vaccines and so we have planned rabbit vaccine clinics at all of our surgeries over the next few weeks. These vaccines will be provided at a reduced cost of £24.50 per rabbit.
If you would like to book your bunnies in for a full health check and vaccination, please ring your surgery book an appointment to help keep your rabbits healthy and happy

Flea and Tick Prevention Season 2016



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
