Weight Clinic For Pets
Our veterinary nurses can advise on tackling any weight issues your pet may have, no matter if your pet is on the heavier side or underweight. Pet obesity can lead to health issues such as arthritis, diabetes and heart conditions.
We will provide guidance regarding your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance. We carry a variety of Hill’s, Royal Canin, and prescription diets to be sure we can address any medical issues your pet may have.
Managing pets’ weight can be tricky, so regular weight checks and chatting about different ways to help reduce or maintain your pet’s weight can be very insightful for pet owners.
The Tender Paws nurses have vast experience in emptying anal sacs to help make life more comfortable for your pet. Checking for any infections or unusual problems, these clinics are great for spotting any issues which can be referred to the vet.
Senior Pet Clinics
We all get old and that goes for our cats and dogs. At an older age, pets require more regular health checks to ensure any issues are spotted early and dealt with.
It is a good idea to pop into a senior clinic for your pet to discuss behaviours at home and for an in-depth check-up to make sure they are still healthy and happy. We’ll check for any problems with the liver or kidneys, arthritis and any other issues, and the earlier they are spotted the better the treatment we can provide.
When will my pet become senior?
- Cats from age 11
- Large dogs from age 5
- Smaller dogs from age 8
Puppy & Kitten Clinics
Our dedicated nurses can discuss all you need to know about health care and diet advice for new arrivals and help you through the first few weeks. Why not make an appointment to see a nurse prior to choosing a pet for advice on what breeds might suit your family and lifestyle?
These clinics are designed to get you on the front ‘paw’ with the care of your new kitten or pup. We help monitor their weight, discuss neutering and administer flea and worm treatment. Beyond this, we can advise on socialising, dental care, behaviour and any other concerns that you may have for your growing pet.
A: Minor grooming issues and nail clipping can be taken care of by a veterinary nurse as can blood pressure checks. It’s not all about cats and dogs either – we can help with rabbit advice, guinea pig care and more.
