Microchips are an effective way of permanent identification.
A rice grain size chip is implanted under the skin
We recommend to microchip dogs and cats. In case they get lost or are involved in an accident, it helps the dog warden, RSPCA and the vets to reunite your pet.
From April 2016 microchipping will be compulsory for all dogs.
To help you to comply with the law we are offering microchips for a reduced price from now on until April 2015
Please ring for any advice or an appointment
Senior cat clinics
How old is your cat?
Over 8 years? In their teens?
Cats do not seem to get older, they don‘t go grey, they don‘t complain. Unfortunately they are very good at hiding any old age signs. Of course, old age is not a disease, but your body does change. We see lots of osteoarthritis, chronic kidney disease, Hyperthyroidism and cognitive dysfunction. Hopefully your cat does not have any of those diseases. To make sure of that and to recognise signs early we offer a senior cat clinic.
Our nurses can talk to you about lots of things we can do to help your ageing cat. They can take your cat‘s blood pressure. Yes, cats can get high blood pressure too.
And we offer a free annual urine test for cats over 8 years old.
Have a look at our information on this website.
