Preventative Healthcare

Because prevention is better than a cure

Prevention is better than cure, and your pet’s health and well-being is no exception. The Veterinary Hospital team recommends that your pet receives a check-up at least once a year or more frequently as they get older. If they have special medical needs please ring for advice.

Regular visits to the vet play a huge part in the “prevention is better than cure” approach and are critical to preventing illness and identifying any newly emerging problems before they become serious.

Apart from detecting any subtle changes in your pet’s physical health, annual vet checks give us an opportunity to get your pet’s vaccinations and parasite control up to date, check your pet’s weight and teeth, and address any issues that may be worrying you.

Vaccinations are essential for your pet and are a critical part of preventative healthcare in cats, dogs, rabbits and ferrets. Vaccinations prevent your pet from contracting potentially fatal diseases.

Parasite Control

Parasite Control

There are many parasites that your animals can bring with them or contract even in your back garden. Our team will advise you on the best treatment and prevention throughout the course of their life.

Each time your dog comes for a routine check-up we will check their teeth to ensure they are clean and healthy. 80% of dogs over the age of 2 years suffer from dental diseases. We can advise you on the best way to help prevent dental disease.
