Id chipping involves the placement of a small microchip about the size of a grain of rice, under the skin in-between the shoulder blades. This is a quick and simple procedure that can be carried out during a routine vet consultation or if your pet is admitted to the surgery for neutering or another procedure. The microchip number is unique to your pet, with owner information being held on a national database. It is important that should you move house or change telephone numbers that you contact the microchip database company and keep your details up to date.
It is preferable to examine your pet at the surgery, where we have access to treatment and facilities, however we understand in certain circumstances this may not be possible. In these cases house visits can be made by arrangement at an additional cost. This will involve a vet and a nurse attending to your pet within the home.
In the event of an emergency after the surgery has closed we advise you to call the normal surgery telephone number, where you will be redirected to speak to the on call vet. If your pet needs to be seen out of hours the vet and nurse will arrange to meet you at the surgery and assess your pets needs. If your pet needs to be admitted to the surgery, overnight care will be provided.
The surgery has an early neutering policy, we will spay/castrate cats and rabbits from 16 weeks of age.
Patients are routinely weighed at consultations, if however you would like to pop in for free weight check please call into the surgery weekdays 11:30am - 2pm.
Obesity is becoming more common in our pets and can have many health implications, if we feel that your pet could benefit from losing a few pounds we may advise a prescription weight loss diet, or advise to attend our weight clinic with one of the nurses.
The British Veterinary Association (BVA) and Kennel club (KC) offer health schemes for hip and elbow dysplasia, this will help breeders identify dogs that are free from clinical disease. The scheme involves having a series of x-rays taken, these are then sent to the BVA for scoring.
