This is an update for all of our current clients and for those looking for a fully mobile veterinary service. Firstly we are still very much open, this is an incredibly difficult time for us all and we are very grateful for your continued support and patience.
The last couple of days have bought some changes due to the lock down period being extended this means that the BVA and RCVS have amended our guidelines as certain procedures are likely to become more urgent.
This advice is not changing how we work, public health is still very important to us. Social distancing and limiting client contact will still be in place.
We are running tele-medicine consultations during covid-19. The Vet will then be able to prescribe medication when necessary. There will be a small fee for this service but if the Vet then deems it essential to see your pet this fee will be deducted.
Some vaccines are now permitted but this will be a case by case basis, based on clinical needs.
Please do not hesitate to call our office.Read More

We are now running very susccessful x-ray days where you can bring along your dog for hip and elbow radiographs to be taken. These digital images will then be sent for scoring under the KC/BVA scheme.
The radiographs are taken in our purpose built unit , with your dog under sedation. You may wait nearby while this is happening and once finished we reverse the sedation and your dog is on his feet again. Very quick and stress free all round. We can let you see the x-ray pictures straightaway too.
If you would like an appointment please call us.
Other radiographs and minor procedures can also be done on these days by prior arrangement.Read More
