Here at Petwell house vets we are passionate about keeping your pets healthy and happy.
Having regular health checks for our furry friends will help assess their health and assist in early detection of any health conditions or concerns.
At Petwell House, we aim for one of our vets to see our patients at least Once a year for a thorough clinical examination, normally at the time of the annual vaccination.
At Petwell House Vets, our nursing team plays a crucial role in delivering the care we provide to you and your pet. In addition to assisting the vets, the nurses are also at hand to answer some of the questions to you may have and at the same time provide advise on weigh management and senior pet care.
Proper geriatric pet care has the benefit of avoiding unnecessary discomfort in elderly pets. As our pets age, theres is a risk of developing medical conditions that can easily be overlooked.
At Petwell house vets we recommend a health check for senior pets ( any pet over 8 years of age). We have a package we call Senior Pet MOT which includes a thorough clinical examinationwith one of our vets, complete blood test and urinalysis. Please contact our team for more details.
Protecting your pets against some of the major fatal infectious diseases is an essential part of our work. We offer a range of modern vaccination protocols for pets to ensure they remain healthy. The pets include dogs, cats, rabbits and Ferrets. Speak to our team on the various benefits of vaccination and the range we offer. We always offer a free complimentary health check at the time of vaccination.
Since 2016, it has been a legal requirement that all dogs in the UK to be chipped and registered by 8 weeks old.
The benefits of microchipping your pet include easier tracing and identification of your pet and this is especially useful in unlikely chance he or she goes missing.
Once the pet has been chipped, we enter the microchip number on to your patient record and also register your contact details on a national database that is available online.
Unfortunately our furry friends cannot tell us when something is not right. And that is where we come in. Whether there is an immediate health concern or just want a check up, we are here to assist. At both our practices we operate on an appointment system which offers a range of appointment times to suit your requirements. The standard time allocated for each veterinary surgeon consult is 15 minutes. This gives ample time for our vet to handle each case.
Our vets are able to provide a range of services during the consultation and are always available in case of an emergency.
Flea & worming
It can be a surprise to find out your cat or dog has parasites, but it is common. All pets are affected by parasites at some point in their lives, this however can be prevented with regular treatment for flea and worms. In most cases, these parasites do not cause serious harm, but are often irritating and uncomfortable for your pet, getting rid of them is relatively easy by using a regular treatment.
Please contact us at the surgery or ask during an appointment for the best flea and worm control plan suited to your pet.

At Petwell House vets, we actively promote the benefits of neutering pets which are various. Our prices for these procedures are competitive without any compromise on standard of care. We use modern anaesthetics and monitoring equipment to ensure your pet is safe during and after the procedures.
Certain pet medicines carry a legal classification, which, means they can only be prescribed by a qualified Veterinary Surgeon (much in the same way that a Doctor prescribes human medicine). These medicines are known as Prescription Only Medicines – Veterinary or POM-V for short. If you chose to purchase POM-V medicines from an alternative source, you will require a written Veterinary Prescription from the Veterinary Surgeon who looks after your pet. We do offer our clients the options of written prescriptions on request.
Our surgeries have fully equipped theatres with modern anaesthetics, monitoring equipment and a wide range of surgical equipment enabling our veterinary surgeons to perform all kinds of life saving operations.
Most conditions especially emergencies are usually having better treatment outcomes if seen by our vets at any of our surgeries. However, in some circumstances we understand you may be unable to bring your pet to us. In such a situation we do offer house visits for our team to come out and attend your pet at home. If this is the case, please contact us early so we can make arrangements.
Does your dog or cat have a bad breath? About 80% of dogs and cats over the age of 3 years have some form of dental disease. Luckily most of these conditions can be managed. Please talk to our team for more information. Our surgeries are well equipped to enable our vets to perform dental procedures.
We offer diagnostic imaging for ease and speed of making a diagnosis. The benefit of using digital x-rays ensures we get clear x-ray images and that the pet is under anaesthesia for a shorter period. Our modern ultrasound equipment provides another important tool for our vets getting a speedy diagnosis.
