Consultations are by appointment only. We provide 15 minute appointments to ensure you have enough time to
discuss any concerns that you may have about your pet.
We aim to provide 30 minute appointments for new clients, new pets, second opinion cases and any complicated

Please report to reception upon arrival so that the receptionist can inform the
relevant staff that you have arrived.
Whilst in reception please keep dogs on leads and all other animals in baskets or
suitable carriers. This is for the safety of your animal whilst visiting the clinic.
In the interest of public health please keep dogs and baskets / carriers off the
seats. Roundworms are considered a human health risk. They can be passed to
people, particularly children and can cause blindness. Roundworm eggs are tiny;
you wouldn’t be able to see them. The eggs are very sticky and can be passed
from your pet on to our seating and infect future clients.
Unvaccinated puppies should be kept on their owners lap or in a carrier. Although
the clinic is regularly disinfected against various pathogens, we do occasionally
have to see unvaccinated or contagious animals. Therefore, this direction is given
in the interests of your own animals well being.
Continuity of Treatment
For any ongoing illnesses we prefer the same vet to complete any follow up consultations and will endeavour to
ensure this happens. However, this is not always possible due to our working hours, unforeseen circumstances or your
own availability. If you prefer to see a specific vet then please make reception aware of this at the time of booking
your appointment and we will do our best to accomodate your request.
Hopefully this information has been useful. If you ever have any questions feel
free to contact either clinic at any time.
We look forward to seeing you and your pets in the future.
