Our experienced nursing team run regular clinics, to support you in caring for your pet to compliment the Vet’s recommendations. These include:
General Nurse Clinics
Here for general help and advice, flea & worming, nail clips and anal gland expression.
Our Golden Oldies clinics provide our older patients with an opportunity to receive some TLC for aching joints. Whether it’s gentle massage or K-Laser therapy, we can tailor the sessions to suit our patient’s needs. We discuss the home environment and look at any adaptations which could be made.
Physiotherapy can work very nicely as a complimentary therapy to help with rehabilitation. A variety of techniques can be used as and when necessary to suit the patient and their recovery. Following veterinary referral, the physiotherapy team work closely with other members of the multidisciplinary team to aid effective and efficient recovery.
K Laser Therapy – Non Drug Therapy
K Laser Therapy can be used to treat certain conditions and provide a certain degree of pain relief which allows for a reduction in medicinal products.
Examples of conditions that can be treated using K Laser include arthritis and painful joints, wound healing, post-surgery rehabilitation and spinal issues such as intervertebral disc disease.
After recommendation from the Vet, the Nurses can discuss ways to aid weight loss for your pet and set up progress targets and checks to keep on track.
If your dog is very anxious when visiting us, we offer ongoing confidence building visits to the practice, working with you and your dog to make your visits less stressful.
For puppies who are registered with us and have had their first vaccination we offer an opportunity to socialise with other puppies of similar age whilst providing owners with advise and support on their new arrival.
The Nurses also support the Vets with follow-up appointments post-surgery and ongoing health management of long term conditions.
If you are would like more information on any of our Nurse clinics, please speak to our Reception team.
On Our Pet Health Club all nurse consultations are free of charge.
