Dogs, cats and rabbits all benefit from health checks as they grow older. Just as with people, pets tend to develop age related diseases such as arthritis and cognitive dysfunction. Our nurses can give your pet a health check and advise whether or not it needs to see a vet for further diagnostic testing.
If you would like to book in a full senior clinic with a nurse we are able to do a blood test, urinalysis and blood pressure as a package, which reduces the cost considerably. These tests allow us to assess liver, kidney and cardiovascular function. If your pet proves to be healthy, these tests can work as a baseline so that we know what is normal for him.
If there are some irregular results, the vet has information to investigate further and advise on appropriate treatment protocols. As with all disease, catching things early makes it much easier to treat and enables us to keep your pet’s quality of life at its best for as long as possible.
We will provide advice and support for clients helping their pets lose weight. Pets are normally referred after seeing a vet, however, please feel free to call and ask to speak to one of the nurses for more information. We can supply dietary advice specific for each individual as well as offering prescription diets.
If you plan to take your dog or cat abroad, head nurse Alice can offer advice on what you need to do in terms of preventative treatments, legal requirements and passports.
After your pet has had any dental treatment it is very important to continue/start regular dental care routines. During this appointment the nurse will discuss with you toothpastes, brushing, diet and any other concerns that you may have.
We are also happy to advise you if you haven’t seen a vet about your pet’s teeth, but we may need to refer you to a vet should the situation demand it.
