The emphasis today is towards preventative medicine. The cornerstone of preventative medicine is a regular health check, this we recommend twice a year. This health check enables us to give a full physical examination of your pet and the opportunity to discuss any changes in your pet's behaviour, this will enable us to uncover any potential problems

When your pet reaches 1 year of age, and you return with your pet for its booster vaccination and annual health check, it is a good time to take some base-level blood tests to establish normal parameters. With these results on file, we can then monitor any changes that may occur.
As a free service we are offering to have a nurse check your puppy at 6 months of age and answer any questions you may have regarding diet, behaviour etc. Click here

As pets age up to seven times faster than humans, by the age of two most pets have reached adulthood. At age 4 many are entering middle age. Because they age quicker, health changes can occur in a very short period of time.
Twice a year wellness exams allow us to detect and treat problems before they become life-threatening. They also provide you with a chance to ask us any questions about nutrition, behaviour, dental health etc. Research shows that more than half of pet owners consider their pet a part of the family. Nearly 70 percent think their pet's healthcare is just as important as their own, so make sure your best friend sees the vet at least twice a year.
Experience shows that when we see our patients on a regular basis and check their internal functions with blood tests, their general well-being is improved. Blood testing offers a means of establishing individual parameters that change with time. It offers a basis for early diagnosis of disease and can be graphed over the years to see how the parameters change as your pet ages.

Senior Pet Care Programme
Each year we run our highly successful "Golden Oldies" promotion - this includes
- Full examination and heath appraisal – particularly with regard to arthritis, teeth and weight/diet

- A complete blood count and serum biochemistry to check body vital functions
- A free worming and flea treatment
- A comprehensive written report, together with copies of blood and urine tests, and a consultation with the veterinarian to discuss the results
Using our modern in-house laboratory , we can test your pet for symptoms that present themselves before they even become a problem. Problems with the vital organs (liver, kidney, spleen, intestines and diabetes) can all be detected early. This allows us to treat your pet early, and thus increase the length and quality of his or her life
