Golden Oldies Club
Golden Oldies Club
As our pets get older their health needs change and they can begin to develop all sorts of age related health issues, such as diabetes, kidney or liver disease, arthritis and heart disease.
In our Golden Oldies Clinic we aim to address these issues to maximise your senior pet’s quality of life and prolong their lifespan.
Pets enrolled in this clinic will receive a complimentary consultation with one of our registered veterinary nurses and are then invited to attend complimentary consultations with our veterinary nurse every 3 months.
We offer these regular check-ups of your elderly pet to increase the chance of early diagnosis as our priority is to maintain a good quality of life and to keep your pet comfortable and happy.
Each pet will receive:
- A health check including a dental check
- Advice on feeding, joint supplements and dental care
- An opportunity to talk about any concerns you may have for your pet
- You will benefit from the option of having reduced cost diagnostic tests (including a geriatric blood screen and a thyroid screen)
We also offer a 10% discount on all geriatric screening to members of our Pet Health Plans.
The first year of your pet’s life is full of rapid development and growth and although this time is filled with fun and games there is a lot of information to take on board as well.
To help you adjust to your new arrival and ensure these needs are met, all puppies and kittens are invited to join our Youth Club, where our veterinary clinic nurse can answer any queries you may have.
Topics we can discuss range from vaccination, parasite control, the importance of a good diet, behaviour, socialisation, basic training, teeth care and neutering.
Your puppy will then be invited for a regular monthly check ups with our clinic veterinary nurse to carry out a gentle general health check and ensure your puppy is on the correct parasite treatment.
This is also a brilliant opportunity to socialise them to the practice and make their visits as stress free as possible, as bringing your pet in from a young age will get them used to seeing us in a positive way.
Pets are truly part of the family and The Pet Travel Scheme allows pets to travel abroad without the need to be quarantined, for this reason more people are opting to take their pet on holiday with them rather than leaving them behind.
Jumping through all the legal hoops and certification and ensuring that the necessary vaccinations and tests are carried out correctly can be very daunting.
There are also additional risks to your pet from potentially life threatening diseases caused by parasites that are encountered abroad.
If you do decide to travel with your pet we offer travel clinic consultations with our clinic nurse who can offer advice on the best methods to protect your pet whilst you are away.
For more information on the parasites, diseases and recommended treatments of the country or region you are thinking of visiting, visit ESCCAP.
An appointment at our Travel Clinic will help you look at the options, make the right decisions for you and your pet and plan the process of preparing to take your pet abroad.
Please remember to ring us for an appointment in good time - it can take several weeks to prepare for travel, and travel outside the EU can involve some lengthy preparations.
There’s more to it than just applying for a Pet Passport!
Puppy socialisation evenings are organised to enable puppies to attend a one off educational evening at one of our branches.
Puppies invited usually have had their initial primary vaccination. Puppy parties are one of the best ways you can help socialise your puppy and give owners the opportunity to have a fun and informative evening.
Puppies are able to play together, as well as meet different types of people, all under the guidance and supervision of our experienced veterinary staff.
Given this opportunity at a young age, puppies are more likely to interact favourably with other dogs and people later on in life.
Our nurses will often give a short presentation about one or two aspects of your puppy’s development, such as training, neutering, diet, flea and worming control.
