Nurse Consultations

Our nurses are highly trained and registered with the Royal Veterinary College.  Their role is different to the veterinary surgeon and they often have a broader knowledge of subjects such as obesity management, nutrition for life stages, best practice for feeding and preventative healthcare, post operative wound care, management and care of large complex wounds and dressings. Our senior nurse has run busy nurse clinics for over five years and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our nursing team

We provide an extensive list of clinics and consultations some have a small charge for the nurses professional time and some are free of charge. We have listed them here; please do not hesitate to contact us for further details
