Our nurses hold a number of dedicated clinics to help you raise a healthy and happy companion
It’s no secret that raising an animal is a big job. As well as feeding them every day you have to ensure their weight is kept under control, they’re receiving regular exercise and not demonstrating unwanted behaviour. However, at Chapel House Vets we appreciate that you may need a little help from time to time.
We know how challenging it can be to have a pet, so our team of friendly, knowledgeable nurses hold a number of dedicated clinics to offer you advice about just about any aspect of your pet’s wellbeing. Whether that’s how to effectively brush your companion’s teeth, through to looking after them post-surgery, our expertise is on hand to make your life easier.
Here are just some of the nurse clinics we offer: Weight Clinics
Our nurse-led weight clinics are designed to help you monitor your companion’s diet and lifestyle. Whether it’s an overweight or underweight pet you have, these appointments are reserved to offer advice about what you should be feeding your pet, how often they should be exercising and in some cases, to design bespoke lifestyle plans.
Unfortunately, just as we become susceptible to more health conditions as we age, so do our pets. It’s for that reason regular blood and urine tests are recommended to ensure your companion isn’t experiencing any problems you don’t know about.
Additionally, during these clinics your pet will be thoroughly examined from nose to tail. You will also be able to discuss any aspects of your pet’s wellbeing – such as their lifestyle, eating habits and any medication they may be taking – with a veterinary professional.
Getting a baby animal is exciting, but it’s extremely important to ensure that your new companion is getting the very best start in life. One of the best ways to make sure they’re healthy and happy is to bring them for a quick check-up when they’re six months old. This means that not only are we able to monitor your pet’s progress, but that we can also identity any potential problems as soon as possible which often leads to quick and effective treatment.
