Pet services

Section image

As a traditional rural mixed practice we have been providing veterinary services for the common pets, farm animals and horses for decades. Yet we also have the expertise and facilities to provide veterinary care for a wide variety of other animals including game birds, camelids, falconry birds, zoo animals and exotic pets such as reptiles, cage and aviary birds, primates and small-mammal pet species.

All consultations are run on an appointment system and appointments can be booked by calling us on 01608 642547. We always endeavour to offer an appointment with your preferred vet whenever possible, at a time that is convenient to you.

Cats, dogs and rabbits

First vaccinations

Puppy vaccinations are usually given at 8 weeks old with a booster injection at 10-12 weeks of age, whilst kitten vaccinations are usually given at 9 weeks and then 12 weeks of age. Rabbits can be vaccinated from 6 weeks of age. All of our vaccination consultations include a comprehensive health check. We will also discuss diet, worming, flea treatment, neutering, microchipping and insurance.

Booster vaccinations for adult dogs, cats and rabbits

Dogs are routinely vaccinated annually against Leptospirosis and in addition every 3 years they will also be vaccinated against Distemper, Parvovirus and Infectious Canine Hepatitis. They can also be vaccinated annually against Kennel Cough if required.

Cats are routinely vaccinated annually against Herpesvirus and Calicivirus (the main causes of 'cat flu') and panleukopaenia. We vaccinate against feline leukaemia virus annually until two years old and thereafter every third year.

Rabbits are routinely vaccinated annually against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease.
