Our Services

Our vets and nurses have a wide range of knowledge and skills, which along with our extensive equipment and facilities means we are able to offer you and your pet complete veterinary care. We constantly reinvest in staff training and new equipment to ensure the practice is up to date. Whether you just need us for routine vaccination or for emergency care (and everything in between) we strive to offer a friendly but professional service.

Consultations
All our veterinary consultation appointments are 20 minutes long, this ensures that we always have the time to thoroughly examine your pet. We have consulting periods throughout the day to make your visit to us as convenient as possible. We try where possible to ensure that you see the vet of your choice, to give good continuity of care.

 

Surgical procedures
If your pet requires a surgical procedure or diagnostic tests we can be as adaptable as possible, arranging the day and vet to suit you. We are happy to give estimates for any procedure your pet may need.

 

Nurses clinics
The nurses run a comprehensive range of FREE clinics.

Post-op clinics for post-op assessment and suture removal.
Youth clubs for all puppies and kittens when they reach 6 months of age.
Well pet clinics for all pets, six months after their annual vaccination.
Plaque busters for advice on dental care.
Bug busters for advice on worming and flea treatments and help administering them.
Weight watchers for nutritional advice for overweight pets.
Ante-natal clinics for advice on breeding.

 

Behavioural consultations
Nadine Fletcher, our head nurse sees behavioural cases on an in-house and referral basis. Problems she treats range from separation anxiety to aggression. Nadine can be contacted at the practice or by e-mail (nadders@aol.com).

 

Puppy Parties
These ‘parties’ are held on a week night evening for four consecutive weeks. The aim of the evenings are to help socialise your puppy with other puppies and people. In addition you learn about basic training, common behavioural problems (and how to avoid them), and general dog care. All the puppies that have been to puppy parties seem to remember the practice as a fun place, and even years later bound through the door, rather than having to be dragged over the threshold!

 

Kitten evenings
These evenings are held once a month, and we will give advice on parasites, vaccination, microchipping, dental care, nutrition, first aid and behavioural problems.

 

Practice tours
If you would like a behind the scenes look at Summerhill, we would be pleased to give you a practice tour. We will show you our facilities and equipment and answer any questions you may have.

Our loyalty cards are available at reception and enable you to save money. If you buy 6 bags of Hills food then you are entitled to the 7th bag free. In addition you get money off neutering, vaccination, microchipping, flea products, dental products and ‘well pet’ blood tests.
