Hand in hand
Take the kids to school, go to work, do the shopping, respond to instagram comments… We know only too well that life is busier than ever!
‘If you need a veterinary appointment and a vet appointment simply:
• Ring us and let us know you require a vet appointment on same day (the vet appointment has to be first)
• We will tell you our soonest availability
• Then ring the vets and ask for their appointment on that day
• Finally call us back to confirm times so we can get you a grooming slot as close to time as we can
We know timings can be difficult so will take your dog from you as soon as you finish with vet even if your grooming appointment isn’t due to start just yet.
Your dogs oral hygiene is a critical part of their overall health.
We have a lot to say on this topic so please click below for more information!
Sedation grooms for nervous dogs
You will probably never need this service! It is very very rare we come across dogs that cannot be groomed or be finished grooming due to severe aggression/ nervousness. We’ve had less than half a dozen dogs over the 6 years we’ve been based within the vets need sedating.
We are very skilled at handling and working with difficult dogs to build their trust and confidence, but sometimes it far safer and kinder to have them sedated to carry out the groom.
Wormers and flea treatments can be purchased in reception and the lovely receptionists can help you with any queries.
Puppy socialising groups
What better way to make your puppy vet visits a positive experience than playing and having fun in a vets reception. Take advantage of these weekly sessions aimed at puppies between their first and second vaccinations.
