With the Vet Nurse

All Appointments with the Vet Nurses are FREE to Attend!

Our fantastic team of vet nurses offer free nurse appointments where you will only pay for any treatment you receive.

They offer a range of specialty clinics and can offer routine monthly support for your flea and worming treatments if you find them difficult to apply.

Nurse clinics are only suitable for well and healthy pets – if you feel your pet is unwell then please book in with one of our vets.

Claw and Nail Clipping

Keeping nails, claws and beaks short helps keep your pet comfortable (and less scratchy when they get up for cuddles).

Dental Care for Pets

Just as with humans, it is essential to look after your pet’s teeth to help prevent bad breath, gum disease and tooth decay.

Flea and Worming Treatment

Both our vets and vet nurses can offer you advice on the best flea and worming treatment for your pet depending on their species and lifestyle.
