Senior Pet Winter Health Check 


We are now offering a WINTER MOT for your senior pet until 8th March 2016.
This will include a full clinical examination for ONLY £10 - plus a FREE optional urine test. Making you a saving of over £30!

So, if your cat or dog is aged 9 years or over, call for your appointment and bring a fresh urine sample with you. (We can give advice on how to collect one when you call). This will enable us to check for common aged-related illnesses that can sometimes go undetected, such as early kidney or liver disease, diabetes etc.

We look forward to seeing your senior pet, and helping them through the rest of the winter!

Your domestic cat can carry diseases which threaten our beautiful and rare Scottish Wildcat.

Neutering Offer!



From 27th July until the end of August we are offering a fantastic 15% off the cost of neutering your cat or dog!



Compulsory Microchipping

Microchipping makes this situation so much easier, and we can re-unite you almost immediately.

Compulsory Microchipping will become law in April 2016

Don't let this be your lost friend!!!
