Our experienced veterinary nurses work with you to keep your pets fit and healthy so they can live fuller, longer lives. In our dedicated nurse clinics, we perform regular check-ups and advise on preventative healthcare, weight control and diet helping you to keep you pet healthy.
And while our nurses are highly qualified, they will always refer you to a vet if necessary.
Below is a list of our clinics, but call us to find out how our nurses can help you with other issues including:

These specialist weight clinics give advice on the best way to tackle any issues, whether your pet is underweight or overweight. Obesity is an increasing problem in our pets and can lead to, or worsen, many health problems such as arthritis, diabetes and heart conditions.
We know managing our pets’ weight can be challenging, so we provide regular weight checks and discuss different ways to help reduce or maintain your pet’s weight, such as exercise.
Post-operative care clinic
Following veterinary procedures involving a general anaesthetic or sedation, your pet will need a post-operative nurse clinic with lots of TLC. These clinics help reassure you that:
- Wounds are healing correctly
- Stiches have been removed safely and dressings changed correctly
- Any dental work, especially extractions, are looking good
- In overall terms, your pet has recovered well from the procedure.
We’ll also talk to you about any aftercare you can do, such as preventative care following veterinary dental work.
Post-op checks are included in the cost of all operations.
Fleas, ticks and worming treatments
Prevention is definitely cheaper than cure when it comes to flea, tick and worm infestations. But there are so many different brands that do different things and often need to be administered differently. Which one is right for your pet and how often do you need to use them?
In our specialist clinics, we’ll talk you through all the options and demonstrate the cheap, easy way to remove ticks should your pet ever get one.
Giving your pet regular flea and worm treatment is important for you, your pet and the environment. Get some expert advice today.
Anxiety therapy clinic
We’ve found these sessions are incredibly beneficial for our more nervous patients. Visiting the vet can be incredibly stressful for some pets and their owners. These sessions aim to get your pet to relax and sometimes actually enjoy coming to see us. These are reassuring consults – we don’t do anything worrying. All your pet will receive is a lot of fuss and treats.
Nail clipping and grooming
Our nurses can keep your pets’ paws in good shape with nail clipping. Minor grooming procedures eg ear epilation or knot removing (dematting) can also be done with a nurse appointment.
