Come and see our friendly vets to discuss your pet’s health

What happens during a consultation with a vet?


A standard consultation with a vet is usually 15 minutes. In this time, the vet will be able to perform an examination of your pet and discuss any concerns you may have. The vet may ask you about your pet’s symptoms, medical history, eating and drinking habits, diet, toilet habits, parasite prevention and behaviour. If you have a lot of questions to ask the vet, sometimes it helps to write them down so you don’t leave anything out.

During the consultation, the vet will check your pet’s heart rate, breathing, eyes and ears, mouth and teeth, hips and any areas you might be concerned about. If your pet is uncomfortable having certain areas touched, please let the vet know so they can take care in those areas. We always want to make sure your pet is as comfortable as possible.

In your consultation, you can get the vet to make up medication if needed, recommend parasite prevention and pet food and give your pet a FREE nail clip.
