Vet nurse clinics
We offer our pet owners Vet Nurse Clinics in Queens Park.
These are held by our qualified veterinary nurse who will help you with the many aspects of pet care and health, such as Routine Pet Care, Dental Care and Weight & Nutrition. If you would like to attend call Queens Park Vets to book an appointment. Here you will have time to voice any of the more routine pet care concerns you may have. Our nurse can also often help by noticing symptoms of health conditions before they become more serious if left untreated. There is a minor charge if any minor procedure such as nail clipping is required.
Routine pet care clinic
Pet health and care advice is given free of charge and we offer many regular routine pet care services. There is a modest charge for some minor procedures:
- Therapeutic grooming
- Anal gland expression
- Ear cleaning
- Nail clipping
- Administering medication
- Checking for fleas and worming
- Wound dressing change
Dental care clinic
We recommend routine dental checks are booked for every three months. Pet dental care aids will be demonstrated by our veterinary nurses. This will include enzymatic toothpastes, supplements, dental foods, dental chews and toys, as well as showing you how to carry out tooth brushing. An individual dental care plan to prevent dental disease in your pet can also be advised. Sometimes rabbits and guinea pigs teeth can become overgrown and these will need to be trimmed so they can eat. Caged bird’s beaks can also need trimming in some circumstances. Often this problem is due to diet. Our veterinary nurse can give you advice on how to use diet to help this condition, as well as arranging for the vet to carry out the tooth clip required.
Puppy and kitten clinic
Free advice is given by our veterinary nurse about choosing a puppy or kitten that will suit your lifestyle as well as advise on all aspects of caring for your new pet. All new puppy and kitten owners will be given a complimentary Welcome Pack of help and information. This also includes four weeks of free pet insurance. A pre-vaccination health check is also given free of charge. At this clinic the veterinary nurse will discuss vaccinations, worm & flea prevention, training, toys, diet, pet insurance and the Queens Park Vets Pet Health Club to help you save money and spread the cost of the regular veterinary care your new pet will need.
The transition from puppy or kitten to adult starts at six to nine months old. The veterinary nurse will talk to you about some of the changes you may need to make to diet, exercise, socialisation and training. We will also advise on worm and flea control, vaccinations and spaying and neutering. Queens Park Vets supplies a choice of foods, training aids and other accessories for pets of this age. We will enjoy following your pet’s progress!
Frequently conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney and thyroid problems can develop as pets grow older. These health conditions can start in subtle ways in the early stages, so early diagnosis and preventative health care is important for your older pet so they can continue to enjoy a good quality of life. At Queens Park Vets we can keep watch over the health of your senior pet and if we feel they need to see a vet for any tests we will let you know. We are here to support your pet through their golden years.
Weight & nutrition clinic
Queens Park Vets holds a regular and free weight and diet clinic. Appointments for this clinic are always available. Your pet will be weighed and our veterinary nurse will let you know the best weight for your pet. We can also talk to you about nutrition and the best food and feeding routine for your pet. An overweight pet is more at risk of developing health conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and breathing problems. We can help you keep your pet in top condition, call us to book your pet in for a weight check!
Queens Park Vets also sell a wide range of foods suitable for weight control in pets. For example Hill’s Prescription Diet r/d weight loss nutrition is clinically proven to reduce fat by 22% in two months for dogs, and 20% in three months for cats.
