Rabbits are becoming increasingly popular, with some living comfortably indoors. They have specific husbandry and nutritional requirements. We can give advice on accommodation, exercise, neutering, health care, vaccinations and how to be aware of Flystrike, a distressing disease which can be avoided with proper care and attention to your rabbit.
As an increasing number of pets become overweight, we are seeing further health problems develop such as heart disease, arthritis and diabetes. These clinics provide the opportunity to develop a tailor-made weight-loss plan for your pet. We will also give advice on exercise and provide follow-up sessions to give support with weight loss.
If you have noticed any changes in your pet’s activity, we can give them a general health check as well as advice on diet and supplements. A mobility questionnaire will enable us to decide if your pet needs to be referred to a vet for further checks.
Senior Health Clinics
For pets over 7 years old. We can give advice on diet, check the heart, look for any changes such as lumps, clean ears and clip nails. If necessary, your pet can be referred to a vet for further checks and tests. These will be chargeable.
Puppy / Kitten Neutering Checks
These clinics provide a chance for us to check the progress and development of your puppy or kitten. We can advise on social behaviour, training, the change in worming regime, flea control and give you advice on neutering.
As with humans, poor dental treatment can cause discomfort and pain. By carrying out regular mouth care and dental checks, we can detect problems early, therefore preventing unnecessary discomfort. The nurse will demonstrate the best way to look after your pet’s teeth with cleaning and diet, which will help in preventing a build-up of tartar, gingivitis and loss of teeth.
These run from 8-9 pm on a selected Tuesday evening each month, and are suitable for puppies up to 6 months old. For a full timetable of when these will take place, please visit our Events section. Your puppy can come along to have fun and meet other puppies – early socialisation is critical for their development. We can give advice on the best worming regime, flea treatment, nutrition and basic health care.
We are always happy to help with any of your pet’s needs. There are other services that the nurse can provide e.g. giving pills, nail clipping, tick removal, applying products i.e. flea and worm treatments. Some are chargeable so please contact us for advice or more details.
