Our specialist clinics are here to help your pet, whatever they might need
These are available by appointment only, but are held Monday to Friday from 10am-5pm at the main Hospital in Cranbrook. We will also be running these clinics at the branches please phone us on 01580 713381 to find out more.
As an extension of a health check appointment, these clinics can offer nail clipping, administration of flea and/or worming treatment, basic grooming help and advice, de-matting, second vaccinations, administration of medication, anal glands and more.
You can also use the opportunity to discuss your pet’s health in more detail, and ask any questions you might want to know about their care. Nurse clinics are free for members of our Pet Health Plan, and only cost £12.50 per appointment for non-members.
Your pet should always have regular thorough examinations with one of our team to make sure that they remain healthy and happy. In addition to these, we run tailored clinics to give advice or treatment plans for a range of specific situations or conditions.
Senior health clinics:
As your pet gets older, they will become more susceptible to a variety of conditions that naturally occur in later life. Our senior health clinics are run by two nurses alongside one of our vet team, and aim to identify any signs of illness at the earliest possible stage to enable effective treatment.
These clinics typically involve a full examination of your pet, including questions about their lifestyle, diet and any differences you may have observed in their behaviour. Blood testing is advised to analyse your pet’s kidney and liver function, as well as checking for signs of anaemia, infection and thyroid disease. Cats are also recommended to have a urine analysis to check for early signs of kidney disease.
If your pet is diabetic, it can often be difficult to keep up with their treatment and specialised care. A member of our nurse team will teach you how to carry out your pet’s regular insulin injections as well as carrying out blood glucose checks and giving diet advice. You can ask them any questions you might have and they will be more than happy to help you.
Did you know that overweight dogs live an average of two years less than dogs that are a normal weight, and also tend to suffer from related conditions like heart disease and diabetes? If your pet is a little bigger than they should be, they’re welcome to attend our monthly weight clinics. We’ll work out how overweight your pet is and then advise you on a new diet plan, consisting of reduced calorie food, to help them achieve their target weight.
Please note that all of these clinics are free to members of our Pet Health Plan.
