Nurse Clinics

Practice Nurse Clinics provided by our fully qualified Veterinary Nurses

Here are some of the many procedures that may be undertaken by our Practice Nurses:

Claw clipping

Overly long claws can mean that owners are scratched when handling their pets. Not only that, they can actually grow inwards into the pads if left unchecked and cause lameness and infection. It is therefore extremely important to keep your pet's nails at a suitable length.

Flea control

Many pets resent their flea treatments! The Practice Nurses can advise on the most effective product as well as administer the preparation to your pet. We recommend using a veterinary flea product as these are the most effective. As fleas don't holiday in the winter - and also carry tapeworm - it is necessary to treat pets all year round.

Worming

It is recommended that cats and dogs are wormed every 3 months. It is not uncommon for owners to have difficulty in giving tablets, but the Practice Nurses are on hand to help. For kittens & puppies, or if they have regular contract with children, more frequent treatment is recommended. It is necessary to treat for lung worm on a monthly basis in dogs.

Preventative dental care

Cleaning your pet's teeth and providing appropriate dental chews/toys can help to save money in the future and avoids the costs associated with dentistry under general anaesthetic. The Practice Nurses can give advice and show you the most effective ways to look after your pet's dental health.

Diet & nutrition advice

The Practice Nurses can give you advice on slimming your pet safely. We have electronic walk-on scales at our branches so that animals can be weighed easily. We have a wide variety of pet foods available and the Practice Nurses can help you to choose the best for your pet. The Practice Nurses are also able to give advice regarding the care of your senior pet.

New puppy and kitten advice

Taking ownership of a new puppy or kitten is exciting! The Grove Lodge Vets Practice Nurses can help you to prepare for the arrival of the new addition to the family, and ensure that you are able to give him the very best possible start in life. Please ask about our puppy parties, which provide an ideal opportunity for early socialisation.

Post operative examinations, suture removal & dressing changes

The Practice Nurses are trained in minor medical procedures and can undertake a variety of non-invasive surgical procedures.

Diabetes advice

Diabetes mellitus is surprisingly common in cats and dogs. The prospect of daily insulin injections can be very daunting to owners. The Practice Nurses are available to help you with the care of your diabetic pet and show you how to safely administer the treatment.

Microchipping

An implanted microchip is a permanent way of identifying your pet should he or she get lost. The tiny chip is injected under the skin between the shoulder blades.
