Microchipping

Since 06 April 2016, it is a legal requirement for all dogs to be microchipped in England and this will likely soon be expanded to include all cats.

We strongly advise all pets be microchipped, even those that are kept indoors. If your pet gets lost or sadly taken without a microchip, it is very unlikely they will be found and returned to you safely.

The microchips are about the size of a long grain of rice and are inserted under the skin at the back of your pets scruff. Each microchip has a unique 15 digit number which once registered is kept on a secure national database. If your pet is found and scanned this number can be traced to you and so your beloved pet can be returned.

Neutering

Neutering

We routinely perform surgical and chemical neutering including laparoscopic bitch speys. Female dogs can be neutered before their first season from 6 months of age or alternatively 3 months after a season. Early neutering of female dogs reduces the risk of mammary tumours and removes the risk of developing pyometra later in life.

When requesting more medication or food please give us at least 24 hours notice. The main reason for this is to allow us time to check whether the item is in stock, if it isn’t we can order it to arrive the next day and dispense it.
