Bringing your pet to the surgery


Lost and found animals


Information Sheets

Please bring your dog on a lead, we can lend you a lead if required.� This is for the safety of others with cats and dogs as well as to prevent your dog escaping from you in the car park or waiting room.� Dogs are often anxious at the vets and even the most well trained animal can behave unpredictably when they visit the surgery.� If your dog passes faeces in the car park or urinates in the waiting room please let us know and one of the nursing staff will clean it up.

Please bring cats in a secure basket to prevent escape.� We have a separate cat waiting area to help cats avoid eye contact with dogs and help reduce the stress of visiting.

Rabbits, Guinea pigs, rodents, bird and reptiles should be transported in�a suitable secure basket or box with minimal loose bedding material.� We are happy to lend you a carrier for your visit if required.
