Microchips are an effective way of permanent identification.

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.
