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. 

Anal Glands 

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.

Registered with this vet a couple of weeks ago and they were so attentive to our new dog, George, and made us feel very welcome giving us lots of advice as new owners. We have just received this morning a lovely card in the post welcoming us. What a nice touch!

My poor, little Willow. I miss her so much already and my heart breaks more and more everyday without her. Anna P and Daisy, they Showed my Willow real love and emotions, made her comfortable with heat pads, blankets, cuddles and strokes and really did put Willow in the heart of everything they could. Even filled her belly till the very end (nothing would cheer willow up more than food). I could see they found it hard also as it was such a sensitive subject for any human being, however they kept professional, direct and most important of all they made me and my partner feel comfortable leaving Willow in their hands. We appreciate the hard work and strength you all have working in such a rewarding but yet such difficult career. Our gratitude is great. Thank you again Daisy and Anna.

It is inevitable at some point you have to say goodbye to your beloved pet and sometimes that requires some intervention. Everyone at Tender Paws were absolutely lovely. They were so kind and treated our beloved dog of 14 ½ years in such a dignified manner. They provided us with a quiet place to spend the last moments and were very supportive. We were given time alone to say our final goodbyes and they carried out our wishes. This is always the hardest part of dog ownership but we were comforted that the team at Tender Paws were sharing this moment with us.

Sadly on Friday 4th August we, with the full support of this vets, had to make the very painful decision to put down our dear little dog. As you can imagine we were dreading it and although it was a heart wrenching experience, Tender Paws took the time and consideration to make his passing the best it could be. We were shown into a private special little room with a garden view. Judy the vet came in and explained step by step the procedure and reiterated that we were making the right decision. We even were able to settle our bill in the same room. Our little Bernard died in our arms quietly and peacefully and at all times the utmost dignity and respect was shown towards him and us. Since our return to the UK we have been with Tender Paws and I cannot recommend them highly enough. All members of staff are professional, caring and warm people. Thank you to them all for making a terrible moment so much better than we ever expected.
