Home Visits

We are happy to visit you at home if either you or your pets are unable to attend either surgery. However, please be aware that the best place for a sick or injured animal is the surgery, where immediate aid can be given.

Repeat Prescriptions

Please call to order your repeat prescriptions for both food and medicines, giving 48 hours notice. In accordance with The Royal Veterinary College recommendations, there is a legal requirement to re-examine all pets receiving prescription medicines on a regular basis to assess progress. This is at least 6 monthly, but can be 3 monthly dependant on the medicine involved.

You are welcome to obtain relevant veterinary medicinal products either form ourselves OR ask for a written prescription and obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgeon or a pharmacy. The vet may prescribe relevant veterinary medicinal products only following a clinical assessment of an animal under his or her care.

A prescription may not be appropriate if your animal is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary. But you will be informed, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be prescribed.

The general policy of this practice is to re-assess an animal, requiring repeat prescriptions, for the supply of relevant veterinary medicinal products every 6 months, but this may vary with individual circumstances. The standard charge for a re-examination (med check) is £24.22. Further information on the prices of stocked medicines is available on request.

The charge for the provision of written prescriptions is £12.38 for single or £18.56 for multiple items.

Nurse Clinics

Our experienced nurses offer advice on topics such as diets, obesity, older pets and puppy training. They are also available to assist with flea and worm control and nail clipping.

If you are thinking of getting a new pet our nurses are able to advise on suitable pets and breeds for you and your family with our "pet planning" service.

Pet Foods

As well as prescription foods from all the major suppliers, we keep a wide range of Hills canine and feline pet foods in stock. Please feel free to visit either surgery for feeding advice.

Members of our vip scheme are able to obtain cost price prescription and maintenance food from Hills and Royal Canin.

Health Related Products

We carry a range of healthcare products including, feline and canine toothpaste and brushes. We are able to order in a much wider selection of products should you wish to order a particular item.
