Battling the bulge in 2017!

Throughout January we will be running FREE nursing weight clinics across all of our branches, to help raise awareness of your pet’s ideal weight, and offer advice and ideas!
Obesity can decrease an animal’s life span and lead to many health conditions. The most practical way to assess if a pet is in underweight or overweight is to perform a body condition score. Our Registered Veterinary Nurses will be able to estimate your pet’s ‘condition score’ both with visual and ‘hands-on’ characteristics. Read More »

In order to try and find the source of the reason for the symptoms, we ran a blood test. Haematology testing examined the components of Amber’s blood including red and white blood cells, and platelets. The results of the Read More »
