Nurse Clinics

How can our Veterinary Nurses help YOU?

We are proud to have a lovely dedicated team of Veterinary Nurses with a passion for ensuring our patient’s get the very best care during their stay at the hospital.

 Did you know that we also run nursing clinics, many of which are FREE where one of our knowledgeable Registered Veterinary Nurses can help advise you on the care of your furry family member?

Below is a list and brief description of nursing clinics we offer, which are available on Wednesday or Thursday afternoons from 2pm. Can’t come at that time? Not a problem! We may have space at another time subject to availability. Please ask for more information at reception.

Junior Health Clinics                              FREE!

During the first year of a puppy or kitten’s life they grow and change so rapidly and there is A LOT of information to take on board. Our Nurses can help advise you on what to expect as they age along with advice on preventative health care.





Senior Wellness Clinics                             £38.50

The aim of a Senior Wellness Clinic is to pick up on common age related problems early. By doing this we can often extend your pets life and make life more enjoyable for the both of you. One of our Registered Veterinary Nurses will discuss your pet’s health with you and check for age related problems such as obesity, dental disease and arthritis. We will ask for you to bring a urine sample and we will also take a blood sample to screen for conditions associated with old age. 

It is important to be aware that this clinic is not designed for ill pets. It is aimed at picking up common age related health issues before they become a problem.


Weight Watchers                                          FREE!

Did you know being overweight will shorten a dog’s lifespan by an average of 2 years? Being overweight can also make your dog or cat at higher risk of developing diabetes, or make existing conditions like arthritis worse. Our Nurses will help tailor a diet plan unique to your pet and offer plenty of support on their weight loss journey. Let us help get your fat pet to be a fit pet like Lottie the greyhound pictured below!




Dental Care Clinics                                        FREE!


Dental work is one of the top reasons a pet has to have a procedure at the practice. It is a common disease that can be incredibly painful. Our Nurses can advise you on good preventative dental care along with whether or not your pet could benefit from a dental procedure to help keep your pet smiling!


Rabbit & Guinea Pig Clinics                           FREE!


These furry critters are very popular pets but sadly are some of the most neglected pets in the UK. Usually when we see them in the practice it is because they are unwell. Come and meet with one of our Registered Veterinary Nurses who can advise you of signs to look out for and some tips and tricks to keeping your small furry fit and healthy!


If you think you and your pet would benefit from one of our nursing clinics, then please make an appointment with one of our team members.
