We are a training practice with a proud history of supporting and nurturing many excellent Veterinary Nurses over the years. Our student nurses work long hours, attend Bottle Green Training College and study hard for up to three years to finally achieve their well-deserved RVN qualification.
Our RVNs are fully qualified and have also undertaken further training to become Pet Health Councillors - they can impart a wealth of information and are more than happy to discuss nutrition and feeding advice, including helping you with weight management programs for your pet. Weight management is so important as pet obesity is such a worrying problem and can lead to many additional health problems for your lovely animals. If you are worried your pet may be carrying a few extra pounds Its something we can help with - your furry friend will feel so much happier and healthier if they are the correct weight, our nurses will organise a program for them to lose the extra weight safely and support you all the way.
New puppy or kitten talks: Owning a new fur baby can be daunting so it will be really helpful for you to have a puppy or kitten talk with the nurse. We love to see them and give them lots of cuddles and treats and chat to you about how they are getting on. Its so important for your little ones to have positive experiences when they come in to see us. We offer free nurse consultations every month for puppies and kittens, this means we can help you keep them happy and healthy and get them used to the Veterinary environment early on.
Minor procedures: Nurses are also happy to perform minor procedures such as nail clipping - but remember its really important to help your pet get used to gentle foot handling before the procedure is attempted - many animals dislike having their sensitive feet touched and may get stressed with nail clipping procedures, so it is always best to get them used to it gradually with lots of praise and positive rewards. If your pet is already very anxious about nail clipping, we prefer to try desensitisation methods as discussed earlier, in some cases perhaps mild pharmaceuticals may be prescribed by the Veterinary Surgeon rather than forcing pets into stressful situations, please talk to us about it.
