Animates is a companion animal practice. We have a friendly team that are always ready to help. Both practices are fully equipped with on site facilities including ‘in-house’ blood analysis, X-ray, dental equipment, ultrasound, blood pressure monitoring and excellent theatre facilities. Dog and cat wards are separate, and for larger dogs we have walk-in kennels.

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 cases. We will always accommodate emergency cases, but please try to phone first so that we can prepare for your arrival.
Reception

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.
