  • Parasite Control and Prevention: No animal should suffer unnecessarily from parasites, such as fleas, ticks, mites and worms of any type. We have a range of safe and effective treatments available, so make sure you ask the people best equipped to advise you, your vet practice.

  • Neutering: We strongly recommend that most pets are neutered, as they may live longer and have healthier lives. This can be done from about 5 months of age, and we have fixed prices that will help you budget.

  • Nutritional Advice: Good feeding and a good diet is the backbone of health and long life for any animal. We stock food that we recommend and that will meet all of the nutritional needs of your pet from the early days to old age, with convenience and good value. Our staff are always happy to advise you on the best life stage diet for your pet.

  • Dental Hygiene: Good dental hygiene is as important for the general health of our pets as it is for ourselves. Our vets and nurses can help advise the best ways to keep teeth and gums in good shape, and we stock a wide range of dental care items.

  • Dental Treatments: We have modern equipment and well-trained staff that means quality dental care, from teeth cleaning to extractions. We are also able to take dental ‘x-rays’, just like your own dentist.

  • Clinical Services: Sometimes our pets will get ill. We have experience in treating a wide range of problems including, cardiology (hearts), dermatology (skin), endocrinology (hormones), gastroenterology (tummy and gut), oncology (lumps, bumps and cancer), orthopaedics (broken bones and sore joints) and urology (kidney and bladder). We can handle most of the challenges your pet will face, but when we can’t, we will refer you to a specialist vet who has the experience and qualifications to deal with very difficult cases.

  • Acupuncture: Vet Carmel Byrne is qualified to treat to dogs, cats, and other animals, having studied with the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists. Acupuncture has evolved from the ancient art of placing needles in specific places on the body to alleviate pain, promote healing and well-being. Chinese and other Eastern cultures have used it for thousands of years, to rebalance Yin and Yang, and improve the flow of Qi. We now know there are good scientific reasons why acupuncture can help in the treatment of internal medical conditions, as well as the control of pain, often alongside conventional treatments.

  • Blood Testing: A comprehensive range of tests can be performed in our own lab, giving accurate results within minutes rather than days, helping us to diagnose and treat promptly. We use blood tests to monitor health too, with routine tests for senior pets to pick up signs of disease, as well as monitoring for side effects of medication, and for pre-anaesthetic screening, to ensure your pet is in the best condition to undergo anesthesia.

  • Radiography: X-rays’ to diagnose injuries such as broken bones and illnesses such as heart, lung, and tummy problems.

  • Surgery: When an operation is needed, in our dedicated operating theatre.

  • Ultrasound Examinations: Looking inside your pet in real time without going inside, especially for heart and abdominal problems.

  • Hospitalisation: At night, although we do not have staff living on site, our patients are monitored and checked as often as required, according to their condition, ensuring the best possible care.

  • Puppy & Kitten Programmes: A range of services for youngsters such as regular checks, vaccinations and parasite control all bundled together in great value packages to make it easier for you to find all you need for your new puppy, kitten or rabbit.

  • Microchipping: Now a legal requirement for all dogs, and more than worthwhile for cats and other pets from birds to tortoises, a simple painless way to permanently identify your pet.

  • Pet Passports: Although Brexit made the Pet Passport invalid, we are able to Issue Animal Health Certificates so that you can still take your pet abroad.

  • End of Life Care: We aim to give sensible, sensitive and sympathetic advice and care for you and your pet when the time comes to say goodbye. We will help to guide you through the process, from making the decision, to choosing your pet’s ultimate destination that might be home burial or cremation with the return of ashes.
