Welcome to our website! Please have a look at the following pages to get an idea of our purpose built practice or even better, come in for a tour and meet the staff. Our practice is centrally located for easy access from most of Telford and there is plenty of safe, easy parking right outside the door.
Our veterinarian, Garth Tozer, is currently the only fulltime vet at the practice and this ensures continuity of care for your pet. We also use only a very limited number of locum vets when Garth is away. The aim of our vets and all our staff is for every owner and pet to feel at ease at all times and we believe we truly would be your pet's choice if he or she could decide where to be treated.
Our first class facilities and equipment enable us to offer many professional services including consultations, vaccinations, microchips, surgery (routine neutering to more complex operations), radiography, laser therapy, laboratory testing, a grooming salon and much more. We also offer advice on correct nutrition and general care of your pet.
Hopefully with the warmer weather we can all get out and enjoy the outdoors with our favourite friends a little more often. There are, however, some things to bear in mind to ensure our pets' safety.
1. Use a vet recommended external parasite control that will keep away ticks, fleas or certain mites which are ubiquitous in the environment in the warmer weather. Certain products are better at controlling some species of parasite better than others so which one to use depends on your circumstances- pop in or call us for the best advice.
2. Remember cats tend to go out and hunt more frequently in the summer months which makes deworming more important and occasionally requires more frequent dosing- the "rule of thumb" for most deworming products is every 3 months but again depends on the animal's individual habits.
3. Make sure you dog is under control at all times but especially near roads - we see more road traffic accidents involving cats and dogs at this time of year than any other. We also see more dog fight wounds which can be very debillitating for the animal.
4. Neutering cats helps to reduce the distance they roam from your property and so reduces cat fights and traffic accidents as well.
5. Ensure all pets are vaccinated so that if they do come into contact with other animals carrying preventable diseases, they have a better chance of recovery from that disease.
6. Do not leave dogs in hot vehicles as they can overheat very quickly.
7. Take water and a simple first aid kit with you on walks so you can deal with any minor emergencies.
As long as all of the above is done you can happily get out with your pet and enjoy the summer! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call our veterinary practice for help.
