Join our pet Waist Watchers Club

As many as 40-50% of pets in the UK are overweight and obesity is associated with many serious health problems such as arthritis, heart disease and liver disease to name but as few.

At Pet Care, we run a Waist Watchers Club to provide help to any of our clients who have questions or problems with an overweight pet. This information is provided to our clients as part of our continuing commitment to improve health.

Our Pet Nutrition Advisers who run the clinics are always happy to give advice on all aspects of your pet’s dietary needs. The practice stocks a range of specially diets to aid with your pet’s weight loss if adjustments to the normal diet are unsuccessful. These are available in a tin, pouch or biscuit form.

We recommend that all pets that are on a diet have their weight checked at regular intervals – normally every two-four weeks. This is a good opportunity for you to discuss your pet’s progress with our pet nutrition advisors. Waist Watchers appointments can be booked at reception and are COMPLEMENTARY.

Reward your pet with cuddles, games and going for walks rather than with food. If you feel the need to reward with treats, you can either give some from your pet’s daily allowance or you could give raw fruit/vegetables. Encourage your pets to play more and therefore us up more energy. We recommend a re visit to the surgery for a re-weigh every three to four weeks.

GOOD WITH RABBITS! Thank you for taking such good, kind care of my beautiful bunny. For anyone looking for an understanding, gentle and competent rabbit vet I have had consistently good experiences here and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Friendly, sincere staff. Nicolas is an excellent vet. I would recommend him to all. He really does give excellent customer care to pets and owners alike. The practice even sent me a sympathy card after my last dog passed away. I highly recommend this practice.

Tracey Carter

Best veterinary practice you can go to! I had the most amazing service here from Maria! She really is an amazing vet. She is so smiley, friendly and just lovely she makes conditions easy to understand and will go the extra mile to help your pet. I now travel over an hour just to use this practice and to have my pup seen by Maria. I know I will have an amazing service and walk out of there smiling knowing everything is sorted and what needs to be done. Also with this practice there is no horrible corporate prices, they tell you exactly what is needed without putting extra unnecessary costs on top. If you are looking for a Vet look no further As Maria is the Vet you want to see.

3 years ago the whole team were wonderfully sympathetic and caring when we had our gorgeous dog Murphy put to sleep. Everything was handled beautifully. We still feel huge gratitude.

Jane Vrettos

Brilliant care of our pet and would happily recommend to all.

We have been visiting this vet for the last ten years and never received anything but kindness and attention. Our elderly Brittany contracted an eye infection and despite all our panic Nick Smith and his excellent team saw us through some of the worst days of pet ownership. Purdey is now much better and although she has lost the sight in her right eye she is as mischievous as ever.
