We advise our clients to make appointments for consultations to avoid undue delay. Emergencies will be assessed immediately upon arrival. Routine surgery is generally admitted in the morning and discharged in the evening.
New pets are extremely exciting; even more so if they’re your first pet. However, just like us they need lots of care and attention while they’re young to ensure they’re growing up healthy and happy.
At CVC Vets we strongly recommend that you bring your new pet to see us once a month until they’re six months old. This allows us to monitor their progress, catch any potential problems early on, and develop a great bond with the new addition to your family. It also really helps your pet learn to love their visits to the vet and this should stick with them throughout their adult life.
Once your pet is 6 months old, they should only need to come and see us annually for a routine check-up, or if they’re unwell.
We recommend that you take your pet to see a vet once a year to ensure they’re fit and healthy at all times.
Did you know that there are some conditions animals are susceptible to that don’t have any symptoms? Additionally, lots of pets are very good at putting up with pain; so your pet could have a problem you don’t know about.
When you visit CVC Vets, after being welcomed by a friendly face and made to feel comfortable, you will be asked a few quick questions about your pet’s health. These questions are nothing to worry about; they simply enable the vet to tailor an examination to meet all of your pet’s needs.
Your pet will be thoroughly examined in one of consulting rooms where the vet will check your pet’s eyes, ears, skin, coat, teeth and claws, before listening to their heart and lungs, and assessing their abdomen.
Once your pet’s check-up is complete the vet will discuss any findings with you. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding your companion’s health.
The vets themselves will dispense any medications your pet requires and will discuss all the details in the quiet of the consultation room. They will also be able to offer you advice about administering it – and are happy to do this – as well as give you lots of helpful information regarding any queries you may have.
