Preventative Pet Health Care


How can we help you look after your pet?

 

We believe in focusing upon the prevention of disease as much as its treatment and we understand the crucial role that you can play in prolonging your pet's life.

 

We recommend:

An annual health check and review. An annual examination with one of our veterinary surgeons can play a vital role in preventing disease and detecting potentially life threatening illness at an early stage.

Regular vaccinations, most dogs, and cats and rabbits should be vaccinated annually and all reputable boarding kennels wisely insist upon this.

Routine worming every 3 months. - Ask your vet or practice nurse for those we recommend.

Regular flea control treatments. - Ask your vet or practice nurse for those we recommend.

6 monthly dental examinations. By the age of two over 70% of dogs and cats will have some sign of dental disease. Not only can this be painful and lead to tooth loss but if left untreated can damage the heart, liver and kidneys.

A well balanced diet.
