We offer the following services during nursing clinics:
- Nail clips *at a reduced rate*
- Dental checks
- Suture removal
- Weight club
- Dietary advice
- Flea and worm treatment advice
- 6 month checks for young pets
- Reproduction Advice
- Anal gland emptying
In an effort to offer our clients and their pets more flexible appointment times, we are adding extra Nurse Clinics at different times throughout the day.
By making an appointment with a Registered Veterinary Nurse, you can often benefit from reduced fees too. Our nurses also offer free checks for pets at 6 months of age where you can receive advice on flea and worm treatments, neutering and all aspects of general health and pet care.
Nurse Clinic availability varies from day to day so it is best to telephone the surgery to make an appointment.
Usual hours are: 8.30am to 9am, 11.30am to 12pm, 1pm to 2pm, 2.30pm to 4pm
We have four Veterinary Nurses
Our Head Nurse is Sarah Banning RVN, working alongside Clinical Coach Joanne Collins RVN, Laura Bryan RVN and Emma Martin RVN.
Our Nurses have undergone 2 years of veterinary nurse training and passed exams at each stage in both theory and practical tasks.
Each year they have to take courses to keep up to date with new techniques (CPD).
