In order to offer a complete service we run several nurse clinics with our team of experienced and compassionate qualified Veterinary Nurses.

Weight Clinic

Overfeeding, lifestyle changes and lack of exercise are all reasons why nearly 50% of animals are overweight. Neutering reduces a pets energy needs by about 25% making them more prone to weight gain.

Obesity is not just about how a pet looks, it can seriously affect your pet in every day life and also lead to serious disease such as diabetes, mobility disorders, heart disease and more. Fortunately, here at Well Animal Clinic, we have nurses on hand to help you deal with this problem. We run a free weight clinic where we can discuss your pets individual needs to help them achieve their target weight and have them fitter not fatter!

Puppy & Kitten

A new addition to the family is a very happy and exciting time, but it can also be a little confusing- which food to feed? Do I need insurance? Should I have my pet neutered? There are many questions to answer.

Well Animal Clinic run a free nurse clinic to discuss all the topics every new pet owner needs to know. Even if you haven’t yet decided which pet is for you, give us a ring and our nurses will be happy to give you some advice.

Pedicures

Nurses also carry out pedicures for dogs, cats and rabbits, and this will cost less than an appointment with a vet. This helps to prevent their nails (especially dewclaws) being caught and torn on things like carpet and often becomes important as a pet becomes elderly.

In particular, elderly cats nails can tend not to shed anymore and therefore may grow right around and into their pad, causing them pain and infection, so should be checked regularly.

Dental Check

Did you know that about 75% of pets over the age of 4 have some degree of dental disease?

Our nursing team are happy to advise you on how to keep your pet’s mouth as healthy as possible, and can give advice on feeding, demonstrate tooth brushing, and assess whether any further intervention may be needed.
