While our nurse team is unable to make a definitive diagnosis, they can refer you to a veterinary surgeon if they detect a problem, or suspect disease. If you have any concerns about your pet’s health or behaviour, however small it may seem, please call us to book an appointment with one of our nurses. Early detection of any condition will result in a better outcome for your pet.

To book an appointment with one of our nurses, please telephone the practice on 01993 772627, or pop in and speak with one of our nurses at reception.
