Keep your pet in the best of health. Call
We are here for your pet, be it to provide you with advice on healthy living for your cats, dogs and any other animal, to carry out routine health checks, or to administer medication and carry out vital procedures in times of sickness. Please take a moment to browse the specifics of some of our principal services.
Cats, dogs and rabbits in particular are susceptible to a range of diseases, with feline leukaemia being prevalent in cats, parvovirus and leptospirosis being a risk to dogs, and myxomatosis posing a real threat to rabbits. We tailor treatment to your pet's age and lifestyle, and offer additional vaccinations should you be travelling abroad.
We guide you through the process required to obtain your pet passport, which will be required for your pet to leave, and re-enter, the UK. The animal must, however, be microchipped, and be vaccinated against a number of diseases, including rabies.
Regular check-ups are essential, even if your pet appears to be in good health. Spotting problems early will save your pet later stress and pain, and will significantly lower any vet bills you may later incur due to ill health or injury.
Poor dental hygiene, leading to gum disease and tooth decay, is a major source of suffering for pets. We offer advice on preventative good practice, and offer treatment, should your pet be exhibiting signs of dental disease.
We provide many other services for animals, from worming and defleaing to emergency operations.
Pet owners will still be able to travel to Europe with their pet after the UK leaves the EU, whatever the outcome of the Brexit negotiations. However, in the event of no deal, they may need to take some additional steps to be able to travel with their pet to the EU.
If pet owners are planning to travel after 29 March 2019 the Government will recommend they contact their vet at least four months in advance to check what they need to do.
Those wishing to travel to the EU on 30 March 2019, for example, should discuss requirements with their vet as soon as possible andÂ by 28 November 2018 at the latest.
The requirements for travel would include making sure that pets are effectively vaccinated against rabies before they travel. This involves having an up-to-date rabies vaccination and a blood test to demonstrate sufficient levels of rabies antibody.
The blood test would need to be carried out a minimum of 30 days after any initial rabies vaccination and a minimum of three months before their travel date. This means that pet owners will need to talk to their vet about health requirements in good time to make sure they are able to travel with their pet.
