Advanced surgery and medicine

Our team of compassionate and highly skilled veterinary surgeons have the medical and surgical experience to perform all routine surgeries and many non-routine procedures, such as orthopaedic surgery, on site. We believe in investing in our vets and equipment and keeping up to date with advancements in medicine. Our surgeries’ equipment is of the highest quality with ultrasound, digital radiography, laser therapy, full orthopaedic kits and high quality Doppler ultrasound. If your pet requires surgery, or has a complicated health problem you know that our team will have the skills to treat them safely. Just like NHS doctors they undertake regular CPD training, ensuring that your pet receives the very best veterinary treatments available.

 

Preventative Healthcare

Preventative health and wellness checks are a key part of the care we provide our four-legged friends. Our philosophy is to focus on preventative care and regular health checks are an important part of this belief system. We believe that health and wellness starts with good nutrition, continues through preventative health care such as regular de-worming, and flea control, topped off with regular check ups with one of our amazing vets. Having these regular touch points throughout the year means that any problems or unusual symptoms can be spotted and treated early.

 

Our VIP Healthcare Plan

Helping you take care of your pet is what we enjoy doing the most, which is why we created our suite of VIP Healthcare Plans. Our Healthcare Plan helps you spread the cost of your pet’s everyday preventative health care so you can relax and enjoy the precious moments with your VIP.

 

Flea and Worming treatment

Flea control

Unfortunately fleas are a very common problem and can once you have a flea infestation, it is very difficult to get rid of the problem. These blood sucking parasites cause a multitude of problems for your pets from skin allergies to mouth ulcers and they can also carry worms and may even bite you! Alarmingly flea eggs and larvae can live in the house for up to 18 months and can provide a reservoir for infestation is not treated appropriately.

Our vets will determine the best flea programme tailored specifically to your pet and lifestyle. We have a wide range of excellent products to suit different pets and owners. In general, we recommend a monthly spot-on product which is applied to the back of the neck. Unlike similar flea medications, this has the added advantage of providing protection against roundworms and lungworm. Please contact us to discuss your pets’ needs and the parasite control most suitable for their lifestyle.

Worming control

Regular worming treatment will keep your pet worm-free and the humans in your house safe. Cats and dogs pick up worms from their mothers, other pets, eating slugs and snails and by coming into contact with the faeces of other animals. There are several types of worms that will cause disease ranging from weight loss to severe life-threatening diarrhoea. Roundworm and some types of tapeworm can be passed on to people, particularly children, and can cause disease and even blindness.

Another worm of significance for dogs is the lungworm. There have been more incidences of lungworm over the last few years with a related increase in fatalities. Symptoms range from coughing and pneumonia, to diarrhoea and vomiting, or the blood not being able to clot and subsequent strokes and neurological problems.

We offer comprehensive protection against worms for cats and dogs and generally recommend:

- Monthly treatment with a de-worming tablet up to six months of age

- Subsequent de-worming every three months

The worming drugs we recommend are only available from a veterinary surgery and are far more effective than those you can buy in a pet shop and supermarkets. If you need help giving a worming or flea treatment we are more than happy to do this for you.

 

VIP Healthcare Plan

All of our recommended flea and worming treatment are available on our VIP Health Care Plan. The Plan will help spread the cost of your pet’s everyday care!

 

Vaccinations

We recommend that all puppies are vaccinated at 8 and 10 weeks of age and kittens should be vaccinated at 9 weeks and 12 weeks. Vaccinations are a very important part of routine care for your pet to protect them against some potentially lethal diseases. The nose to tail health check that we perform before any vaccination is very important to detect problems and diseases early – from dental disease to cancer.

Cats

We vaccinate against Cat Flu, Enteritis and Feline Leukaemia Virus (this is a common cause for tumours in cats). After the initial course annual booster injections are given to ensure disease protection.

Join our VIP Healthcare Plan

As part of the Plan your cat will be entitled to our full primary vaccination course, protecting your cat from deadly diseases.

Dogs

We vaccinate against the four core diseases of Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus and Leptospirosis. Luckily most of these diseases are relatively rare however they can be fatal if not caught and treated early. In addition to the four core diseases, we recommend vaccinating against Kennel Cough if your dog is likely to mix with lots of dogs or will be kennelled. Kennel cough is a very common disease, and whilst rarely fatal, causes significant inconvenience and discomfort. This vaccine can be done from 8 weeks and is given annually with the booster.

Join our VIP Healthcare Plan

Our Plan includes all vaccinations including kennel cough.

Rabbits

We advise vaccinating against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhage Disease (VHD). We recommend that the injection is given from 12 weeks of age and then annually as a booster. In addition to the vaccination our vet will perform a thorough examination of your rabbit as they are prone many avoidable conditions such as bad teeth and gut problems.

Join our VIP Healthcare Plan

All vaccinations are included as part of the Plan.

 

Neutering

We strongly recommend neutering all pets not intended for breeding as this can prevent or reduce the risk of a number of potentially serious diseases. As we rehome cats alongside the RSPCA we are also very aware of the number of unwanted pets that are currently in the rehoming system.

It is really important to get your pet neutered for a number of reasons including:

- Stops unwanted pregnancies

- Can reduce or prevent tumours

- Can reduce or prevent several unwanted diseases

- Makes your pet happier and healthier

Female animals are spayed from 6 months old. Apart from preventing unwanted pregnancies this can reduce the risk of mammary cancer and prevent false pregnancies and a potentially fatal womb infection called Pyometra. We may on occasion opt to spay dogs after their first season in certain breeds but this will be discussed with your vet at one of the puppy checks.

We can neuter pets:

- from 5-6 months in cats

- from 6 months in dogs

Neutering requires a general anaesthetic so your pet will need to stay with us for the day.

If you would like to find out more about neutering your pet please give us a call.

 

Dental Care

Did you know that up to 50% of pets over three years old are suffering with dental disease? Dental disease is one of the most common problems we see in veterinary practice and like with humans can cause significant pain and suffering. Pets have the similar problems with plaque, tartar, gingivitis and periodontal disease as us humans. Poor dental hygiene can lead to bad breath, infection, pain and the loss of teeth. Dental disease is more common in older pets but can occur in younger animals too.

Prevention

The good news is that it is usually resolved if addressed early with appropriate care. Our philosophy is to focus on preventative care and regular dental check-ups at a health assessment are an important part of this belief system. If our vets spot any indication of dental disease they may recommend a dental treatment such as a scale and polish or if they suspect extractions are necessary they will suggest x-rays to take a look below the gum line.

Signs to look out for

If you are not sure whether your pet has dental problems, please see the following list of common signs:

- Bad breath

- Dribbling

- Sore mouth

- Difficulty eating

- Loose teeth or tooth loss

- Pawing or rubbing at the mouth

- Bleeding gums

- Yellow or brown tartar on the teeth

 

Health Checks and Clinics

It goes without saying that you know your pets better than anyone else, but of course you cannot spot everything. There are some common, but serious, diseases that have subtle symptoms in their early stages, and it can take an expert eye to spot those signs.

Health and wellness checks are a key part of the animal care we provide our four-legged friends. At DNA Vetcare we believe that health and wellness starts with good nutrition and regular health checks from an early age. We share your desire to make sure your pet is healthy, and to want to help you keep them that way!

We offer a range of clinics to keep your cherished pet happy and healthy from puppy and kitten hood all the way through to their more senior years.

 

Hospitalisation

We hope your pet never needs to be hospitalised, but if they do you can be assured that their overnight stay and care will be of the highest quality. Your pet will stay in modern, clean, air-conditioned kennels providing comfortable hospitalisation. If your pet has stay with us overnight, it is important that they are as calm and relaxed as possible. We know that cats are more relaxed in quiet, peaceful environment so we care for our cat and dog patients in separate wards. This approach greatly reduces stress and anxiety for both cats and dogs and is particularly helpful when treating conditions which are exacerbated by stress. We also have a separate isolation ward to protect our patients against any infectious diseases.

If your pet requires an overnight stay they will be taken care of by our team of skilled nurses who live on site, providing optimal care and safety. They will administer medicines, change IVs, monitor vital signs and of course dispense cuddles!

 

Pet Travel Advice

The PET travel scheme allows pet owners in the UK to take their dogs, cats and ferrets to other European countries and then return with them without need for quarantine. We have Official Veterinarians (OVs) who are experienced at completing the Pet Passport paperwork. Please note that for many non-EU countries (e.g. South Africa, Australia, New-Zealand etc.) you cannot use a Pet Passport, and an Export Health certificate (EHC) is instead required.

For up-to-date information on your legal obligations when travelling abroad with your pet, we recommend that you contact Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs for full details of current requirements.

 

Pet passports

Taking your pet to Europe can be very exciting, but it does require advance planning in order to ensure that all the required documentation and vaccinations are in place. Before travel your pet must:

- Have a valid Pet Passport signed by an Official Veterinarian

- Be microchipped

- Have been vaccinated against rabies at least three weeks before travelling

- Be protected against ticks for the whole time you are away. Ticks in Europe carry dangerous diseases that we don’t have in the UK. We recommend that you check your pet for ticks after walks and remove any you find with a tick remover.

- Have tapeworm treatment administered by a vet 24 – 120 hours before your scheduled arrival back to the UK (dogs only)

 

Depending on where you are going, you may also need Sandfly protection against Leishmania and also Heartworm protection. These diseases are not present in the UK but are found in southern Europe, so please talk to us for specific advice that suits both your plans and your pet.

Please note that for many non-EU countries (e.g. South Africa, Australia, New-Zealand etc.) you cannot use a Pet Passport, and an Export Health certificate (EHC) is instead required.
