Some services incur charges and certain nurse clinics are only available at certain branches due to space and facilities.
We offer nurse clinics at Spinney Veterinary Hospital and our Wootton Fields Veterinary Surgery. These clinics are run by fully qualified and experienced Veterinary Nurses in which we are able to advise our clients on many aspects of preventative healthcare for their pets.
COMFORT YOUR PET THIS SEASON
We understand that noisy celebrations such as Halloween, Bonfire Night, Diwali, Christmas, and New Year are occasions that can cause nervousness in pets. With Christmas and New Year around the corner, we must remember to keep our pets in mind and take every action we can to keep them calm and at ease. Stress can be caused by an increase of people visiting their homes, fireworks, loud noises, separation anxiety due to an increase in parties and social gatherings, and more.
Did you know we are offering veterinary nurse clinics to help pet owners combat the signs of stress in pets this party season?
Nurse Consults offered include:
WEIGHT & DIETARY ADVICE
Obesity is an extremely common disease affecting our pets and is as unhealthy for them to be carrying extra weight as it is for us. Obesity has an adverse effect on their health leading to issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis.
At this clinic, the nurse will advise the optimum weight for your pet and set up a diet and exercise plan with you to help your pet lose those extra pounds. Once their target weight has been achieved we will assist you in maintaining a healthy weight for your pet.
We can also advise on supportive diets for medical conditions and specific diets and feeding amounts for all life stages.
Your pet should have an annual examination and vaccination assessment by a Veterinary Surgeon. We recommend an interim 6-month health check by a nurse, especially for older pets.
This is a great opportunity for you to discuss any concerns you have with your older pet, such as mobility issues, behavioural changes, and dietary requirements.
Nurse appointments are available Monday to Friday at Spinney Veterinary Hospital and Wootton Fields Veterinary Surgery.
Pet Dental Care
The aim of this clinic is to offer advice on all aspects of dental health for your pets keeping them healthy and happy.
A post-operative dental check can be booked to help you to keep your pet’s teeth clean following dental operations and to reduce the need for further dental procedures.
During your appointment, we will discuss a dental homecare plan which will help you to keep your pet’s teeth in excellent condition.
General dental checkups are available for any pet of any age - even kittens and puppies will benefit from a home care plan.
Dog Dental Care
We advise a dental health check for your dog every 6-12 months. Dental disease is progressive, so it won’t disappear without help and will only become worse. The best thing to ensure a good quality of life for your dog is to prevent disease and this can be done with regular checks.
Cat Dental Care
If you're concerned that your cat is suffering from dental issues, get in touch with our cat dental team right away. They will perform a complete inspection of your cat’s mouth. If there is anything that seems wrong, it will be assessed so that the right course of action for you and your cat can be decided.
This clinic at our Wootton Fields surgery focuses on all aspects of healthcare and husbandry for rabbits and guinea pigs.
At these clinics, we offer advice on vaccination, neutering, healthcare, housing, and nutrition.
SENIOR WELLNESS - OVER 8'S
As our pets get older it is important to have regular health checks to ensure any age-related problems are detected early.
Early detection can help us to manage age-related illnesses effectively and allow your pet to have a longer, happier, and healthier life.
