Happy New Year
2017 was a pretty great year. Here`s to 2018 and another great year, great people, great pets and great memories!
Happy New Year to all of our clients and readers! We hope that you had a wonderful festive season and a great start so far to 2018!
What`s a better start to the year than by treating your pet to a Pet Health Plan this New Year?
An animal health plan allows you to spread the cost of your pets’ routine preventive health care. It is a monthly direct debit which helps you budget for your pets everyday healthcare needs.
Why have a pet health plan?
We believe in a proactive, preventive approach to your pet’s healthcare. We know how important your pet’s health is to you and we want to help you keep them happy and healthy for longer. Regular check-ups, vaccinations, parasite control and early diagnosis of any potential health issues will help your pet enjoy a long, comfortable life.
Our plans are available for dogs, cats and rabbits.

For the love of cats
If you’re a cat owner, chances are that you’ve been worried that your beloved cat finds the vet experience horribly stressful. Not only because he’s ill or injured, or even just waiting for their annual health assessment, and about to see the vet, but because, for cats, the vet practice can be a terrifying place.
The cacophony of canine noise, barking, whining and clawing, can send a cat’s cortisol stress hormones soaring through the roof. That’s why many cat owners resist taking their beloved cat to the vets in the first place, preferring to see if they get better, rather than putting their poor puss through such a stressful ordeal. That approach is clearly not in the cat’s best interests.
As a response to these concerns, we decided a few months ago to organise a cat-only clinic every Wednesday from 2 pm to 3 pm. Our practice is quiet, and we release a synthetic calming pheromone into the air. This is the same as the pheromone that cats release from the glands around their mouth, neck and tail when they are ‘bunting’ or rubbing up against objects that mark their home territory. It sends the olfactory signal that ‘there is no need to be anxious, this place is fine’.
Some of our veterinary nurses and veterinary surgeons are passionate about cats and dedicate part of their career to learn about them and provide expert medical care to felines.
Our highly-trained, caring nurses are cat lovers and owners; nurses who understand their patients are unique and need sensitive handling.
