Your team at Thompsons
We wish you all a Happy New Year
For 2015 we have made our resolutions. We want to offer you the best professional service and still be like a good friend, you turn to us when you have problems with your pet.
So soon we offer you a pet health plan. We are just waiting for the print work. This will be a plan to spread the costs of preventative health care e.g. vaccinations and flea and worm treatment.
Please ring us for further information.
Also some of our nurses and vets have signed up for the X Runner. This is a 5 or 10 km race through mud and fire and littered with other obstacles.
We are trying to raise money for 2 charities, the World Animal Protection and the World Veterinary Service. Both run fantastic campaigns for animals in the UK and abroad.
Please visit us at our practice or the charity page https://www.justgiving.com/teams/ThompsonsVets or text TSVL84 £2 to 70070 to donate £2 to the WPA or text TSVL85 £2 to 70070 for the WVS
We will keep you updated and show you more training photos as it gets closer.
This is mostly for the charities, but also to make sure our team is better and healthier to help you and your pet.
And we are pleased to announce that we were nominated for the Petplan Practice of the year award. Thank you. Please vote for us and visit www.petplan.co.uk/vetawards
As you can see the year promises to be busy.
We wish you a healthy new year
Lots of love from Thompsons
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
Michelle is back from her maternity leave, but we liked Emma so much, that she is staying. At least for a while.
We have increased our consultation times, to make sure everyone can be seen if necessary and at a time most convenient for you.
In case you have not met Emma. Here is a photo.
She has been working in London, but is kind of going back to her home. She first started her working career in Nottingham.
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.
