Our nursing team are trained to carry out procedures and give advice on preventative care, and offer a range of clinics to help keep your pet fit and healthy.
If you would like to arrange a consultation with one of our nurses, please call your local branch to make an appointment.
Puppy and kitten clinics
We can advise you on how to help your new pet settle in, training, behaviour, diet and any other concerns you may have. We can also monitor your pet’s growth and general wellbeing.
These clinics are a great way of getting your pet familiar with going to the vets and having their paws, ears and teeth checked, and can help make future visits a positive experience.
Senior pet clinics
Pets become more prone to health problems as they age, so we recommend taking them for regular checkups. The sooner we detect a problem, the more we can do to help.
Our clinics are for cats and dogs over the age of seven and focus on diet, habits and behaviour, as seemingly small changes can be early warning signs of liver or kidney disease and arthritis. These conditions are common in older pets.
We want to make sure your pets live comfortably and for as long as possible, and are here to help with any queries you may have.
If you have any concerns about a senior pet, please get in touch so that we can arrange a senior pet clinic with a nurse or a consultation with a vet.

It’s important to ensure that your pet is a healthy weight through every stage of their life.
Managing weight issues can be challenging, and every patient is different. That’s why we offer tailor-made diet plans and regular appointments with a nurse for weight and measurement checks.
Obesity in pets is a growing problem. Being overweight can affect your pet’s health and increases the risk of issues such as:
- Joint, bone and ligament damage.
- Heart disease.
- Liver disease.
- Respiratory disease.
- Urinary diseases.
Although much less common, underweight pets face an increased risk of issues such as:
- Weakening of the immune system.
- Skin and coat problems.
- Muscle loss.
- Reduction of bone density.
- Slow wound healing.
Pets who maintain an ideal weight and body condition score will live happier and longer lives.
Our nursing team also offer the following treatments:
- Nail clipping.
- Dressing and bandage changes.
- Blood pressure checks.
- Tick removal.
- Flea and worming.
- Ear cleaning.
Our nurses are highly experienced and knowledgeable, but they are unable to diagnose medical problems. If necessary, your pet may be referred to a vet for treatment.
