How can a vet nurse help my pet?

We’re incredibly proud of our nursing team. Whilst the role of our vets is to diagnose and treat disease, our vet nurses work alongside them to care for their patients and ensure their medical, physical and welfare needs are met. We know how important it is to you that while your precious pets have to be away from you, they’re receiving all the love and care in the world, and our nurses - and of course, our vets - are more than happy to provide this! 

What does a vet nurse do?

The core of their role is in caring for patients - administering medication, feeding them, keeping them clean, dressing and caring for wounds, and checking on them during their stay. But one important role that we wanted to focus on in this blog is their role in supporting and educating you through nurse clinics. From helping you to slim your pet down in a safe and effective manner, to advising you on giving your puppy or kitten the best start in life and performing perfect pedicures by keeping your pet’s nails trimmed, the clinic nurse has a great deal of knowledge that they are very keen to share with you!

Did you know that we run clinics throughout the day, Monday- Friday?

Our nurse clinics give our clients more flexibility for consults for routine checks such as:

  • Dental checks
  • Wound checks
  • Nail clipping
  • Anal gland checks
  • Weight clinics
  • Routine bloods
  • Worming and flea treatments
  • 6 month adolescent checks
  • ... and so much more!!!

Here are some of our recent visitors...

Two happy customers with a clean bill of health !

Loveable Henry was also in recently for his 6 month adolescent check with one of our vet nurses. This mid-year check up is a great opportunity for us to give your pup a full check-up and for owners to ask any questions, like neutering, feeding, exercise etc… We like to make sure all of our owners feel supported throughout the year and the best care is given to our patients.

Do you have a golden oldie at home? If so, this is the month for you (and them!). March is Senior Pet Month!

We want to give our senior patients a bit of extra TLC this month, so we’re running senior nurse clinics. We are welcoming any animals over 7 years old to come in and chat to one of our nurses about any age-related concerns you may have. We are also offering urinalysis and discounted routine blood work, along with a basic physical exam.
