Puppy Vaccination Packages

We offer an 8-week start and 12-week finish for puppy vaccinations.

We use:

Your Pets Dental Health

  • We offer a free dental health check with a Registered Veterinary Nurse every six months for your pet.
  • Under the Pet Health Club (PHC) membership scheme your pet will automatically benefit from 6 monthly examinations that include dental health checks.
  • We recommend introducing your pet to regular teeth brushing on a daily or, if not a weekly basis from an early age to limit progression of dental disease as they get older.
  • If regular brushing is not possible then dental diets such as Royal Canin Walthams® Dental or Hills® t/d, or other suitable dental diets are recommended.
  • For pets that already have established dental disease, an examination under anaesthesia is recommended. This will include a scale and polish, a set of standard dental radiographs and extractions should these be required.
  • Please call the surgery to talk to our vets or nurses for further advice.
