Clinical Examination

Every appointment made for your pet is 15 minutes long and comprises a full clinical examination including heart rate, respiration rate, temperature, assessment of eyes, ears, teeth and general body condition. This is why, when you bring in your pet for a specific problem we always start our examination at the ‘head end’. Our vets don’t ignore what the problem is, but they are getting information from your pet in a way only your pet can tell us. Our patients can’t speak to us, so we have to look at everything to be sure we don’t miss anything.

Our nursing team are always on hand if needed, which means we are able to take blood samples and perform minor procedures in our consult rooms, which means we can reduce the time taken to get results by doing blood tests on the day the vet decided they are needed and not having to book your pet into the hospital for the day.

The consulting rooms are well organised and prepared with all the equipment needed for the vast majority of consultations to be sure that none of your time is wasted while you are in seeing the vet. Everything the vet needs is to hand to ensure that your pet receives the very best care while here with us.
 
If your pet has been prescribed medication the vet will need to see your pet at least every 6 months, or maybe more frequently, depending on your pet’s condition or the reason for the medication, as required in Law under The Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001.
