Preventative Pet Care Services

cat in the veterinaryAt Bridget Vet Ltd we offer a huge variety of quality pet care services. Our highly-skilled team handles everything from vaccinations and worming to pet passports, micro-chipping, and much more.

Vaccinations

It’s never been easier to ensure that your animals are properly vaccinated. We actively encourage regular vaccination for dogs, cats and rabbits to suit their lifestyles.


We recommend that puppies are vaccinated from 6- 8 weeks of age with a 4 week gap between first and second vaccinations and annually thereafter. This has recently changed due to the development of a new leptospirosis vaccination.

 Our basic vaccination course covers:

  • Distemper
  • Hepatitis
  • Parvovirus
  • Leptospirosis

Bridget Vet Ltd also provide additional vaccinations for bordetella bronchiseptica (kennel cough): contrary to popular belief, this isn't just a threat to kenneled dogs.

Kittens should be vaccinated at 9 and 12 weeks, and annually thereafter. We provide vaccines that cover cat flu viruses and enteritis, as well as an option for feline leukemia virus. We highly advise the full vaccination for most kittens, but depending on your pet’s lifestyle, less coverage is occasionally suitable.

Our puppy and kitten packages offer not only the vaccination course and health check, we also include the first dose of flea and worming treatment, a Hills food pack, 4 weeks free pet insurance with Petplan and information leaflets.

Rabbit Vaccinations

A new annual vaccination has recently been launched for rabbits, offering an extremely cost-efficient way to protect your pet against myxomatosis and viral hemorrhagic disease, both of which rapidly lead to fatalities.

Handy Pet Passports

Our Veterinary surgeon, Ann Parry is a qualified OV, which enables her to issue pet passports. Please note that animals must acquire a rabies vaccination and microchip prior to travel. Call or visit us today for full details.

Pet Worming Solutions

Our practice policy is to worm adult cats and dogs on a three-monthly basis. Puppies and kittens should be wormed monthly from the time of vaccination until they reach six months of age. We have a convenient text reminder system available, all we need is your mobile phone number.

Flea Products

We stock a range of prescription-level flea treatments. We are always happy to offer advice on suitable products, so drop by the surgery today to see what options we carry for your pet.

Micro-Chipping

We strongly advise micro-chipping for dogs and cats as it provides a permanent means of identification that quickly reunites you with your animal in the event of loss or injury. From 2016 all dogs in England must be microchipped by law. Speak to us today about our microchipping offers.

No-Stress Neutering

Let us take the stress out of neutering your pet. The timescale for neutering dogs is a matter of personal preference. We neuter from six months of age and prior to a bitch's first season. Call us today to discuss the pros and cons of neutering, depending on the breed and temperament of your animal.

We actively encourage the neutering of cats starting from four months of age to prevent unwanted kittens that often become stray. Neutering male cats also reduces wandering and fighting, which can often lead to adverse health issues.

Rabbits can also be neutered from four months of age. Neutering your rabbit prevents unexpected babies and decreases aggression, as well as urine spraying. Moreover, it is important to spay female rabbits to prevent the development of uterine cancer, which is common in rabbits aged four years and older.

Knowledgeable Nutrition Guidance

animal nutrition bagsWe know that good nutrition is extremely important, especially in growing animals. To give your pets the best, we stock the Hills Vet Essentials range: premium nourishment that provides your dogs and cats with a balanced, highly-nutritious diet.

Good nutrition is equally important for fibrevores to maintain healthy gut functions. This is why we also stock Burgess Excel for rabbits and guinea pigs.
