Veterinary Consultations

A consultation is one to one time with an experienced veterinary surgeon, enabling you to discuss in detail health concerns you may have and for the vet to carry out a full health check, whatever the nature of your concern.

 

All our standard consultations with vets are 10 minutes, however longer appointments can be booked in advance, especially if you have multiple pets needing to be seen.

 

Just let our reception team know that you may require a longer appointment.
